President John Chandler opened his last meeting of the year.  There was no music as all pianists were out of town. Amalie Persson ( student that is going to northern Chile)  said the Inspirational Minute. Thank you to Jim Kosmo for letting us have our June 11 meeting on the Padelford, which turned out to be very riotous and fun. The June birthdays were sung to and the June anniversaries were announced.
David Laird introduced the Program: Expanding the Future Talent Pool led by Dr.  Abdul Omari, Jamil Lott, and Howard Jones.  Each shared their unique perspective. Dr. Omari on founding the program to get more Black college seniors into leadership and jobs.  They go to leadership camp for 11 weeks, then they buy a suit, shoes, tie, etc for the working world.  They are mentored the last 2 years of college.  They learn interview techniques, time management, yoga, there is a sleep coach, and all the skills needed to get a job and get ahead.  They have a 100% graduation rate the first year, 86% year two, and 90% year 3. The program has been going for 3 years. They went from 3 students to 45 this year of 2019 to 2020.  So there is definitely a need! Howard Jones was a student in the program and said how exciting it was to have help buying a custom made suit, which he never had before. This program is building a brotherhood of successful men.  These students are hired by companies and the program pays their internship fee! Sounds like a fantastic program! David urged all of us to hire these young men as interns.  
Then Chuck Standfuss reported on the upgrading and bylaws changes, holding of the Rose Sale again, holiday party auction and fundraiser, which the board passed on.

Sherry Howe talked about the Saint night July 25th and then said she had a badge to be the new Sergeant at Arms and would be giving out tickets, all in fun!
