Highlights of May Meeting

The RBA held its annual meeting Wednesday, May 11 at the Clarion Hotel with 31 tables, the largest turnout in many years. After a dinner of chicken marsala, baked salmon and roast beef, the membership approved the nominating committee’s slate of Barry Fratkin, President; Anne Atwood, Vice President; Chris D’Ambra, Secretary; and Tom Kasvin, Treasurer. Directors elected were Becky Duty, Francis Terminella, Paul McGowan, and Debra Gardner. Additional directors, appointed by the president, were Linda MacCleave, Ed Kinlaw, Randall Holden and Pat McDermott. Harry Gellis will serve on the board as past president.
