“Unity is strength. Division is weakness”…… Swahili proverb
I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to serve as your Sectional Vice-President. I thank you for expressing your confidence in me through your vote and vow to do everything in my power not to betray your trust. I am especially thankful to Erma Givins and her team of supporters who generously contributed their time and effort to my campaign during this very long election season. Congratulations to Jacki McLoyd on receiving the merit award for 2016, so deserving. Kudos also to our Milestone recipients who received awards at the MABU milestone ceremony. Special recognition to Dr. Anderson Williams for becoming the Southern Section’s 5th Grand Life Master, amassing 20,000+ master points. He shares this honor with Gloria & Worth Christler, Sylvia Christian, and Jimmy Pelham. My main goals are to aggressively recruit, teach and mentor new members as well as share these tools with current members. I will not be able to this job without your input and involvement. I welcome your ideas and feedback to help attain these goals and keep the Southern Section the Number 1 section in the ABA. We must support our club, unit, sectional and national games. Please use this web site as well as the ABA website to keep abreast of the games and tournaments that are being offered. aba-ss.com ababridge.org Let’s support the Spring National Apr 1 – Apr 7
Thanks again from the bottom of my heart.
