President Newport opened our meeting, introduced our guests and turned the meeting over to Program Director Mrs. Jane-Anne Keese. Mrs. Keese works with our high school to get the best sophomores to be our GOLD delegates. Mrs. Keese read the reports of the two who wished to be our delegates. The two young poeple who represented Three Rivers, the Little Acorn Study Club and our high school were very nice, polite and good representatives for us.
The two delegates are Miss Lindsey Weber and Mr. Bradley Bellows. Both thanked the Study Club for allowing them to be our representatives and reported they were very pleased with what leadership skills they have learned. They learned to not judge someone quickly, to be more helpful and much more.
