Brazil Main Street forms committee for officers

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Brazil Main Street, Inc., may soon have some new leadership.

During their monthly meeting, the group agreed to form a committee to retrieve a list of names for office consideration.

Currently, Zac Chambers serves as president while Tony Harper is vice president. In addition, Theresa Chaney serves as treasurer and secretary.

According to the organization's by-laws, the president and vice president may serve two-year terms while the treasurer-secretary serves a one-year term.

During the organization's July meeting, Chambers said he was ready to step down in order for someone else to take the reigns.

Committee member Jasen Gibbens agreed to be part of the committee, as did Chambers. Members at the meeting also selected Sally Maurer to be the third member.

The three-person committee is expected to have a candidate's list at its September meeting.

Meanwhile, the organization brainstormed through a slew of moneymaking opportunities.

Edie Richards told the eight members in attendance she had recently spoken with members of the Popcorn Festival of Clay County. Richards said she would like to see Brazil Main Street have more of a presence at the festival this year, scheduled to take place Sept. 29-Oct. 2, at Forest Park.

In addition, Gibbens suggested the organization set up a drink stand -- and possible food stand -- on State Road 59 during the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival, set for Oct. 14-23.

Gibbens said due to heavy traffic, the organization might be able to make some additional money by offering drinks to patrons.

In other news, Chambers said Harper informed him the group's 501(c)(3) paperwork was complete and they would be sent out as soon as possible.

Brazil Main Street, Inc., meets regularly on the first Thursday of each month at the Brazil Public Library.

However, due to scheduling conflicts, the next meeting was moved to 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15.
