Brazil Main Street to elect new president

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Members of Brazil Main Street, Inc., learned Monday they would have to elect a new president.

During the organization's monthly meeting, members Edie Richards and Zac Chambers presented a letter they received from current President Tony Harper.

In the letter, Harper announced his resignation.

Harper was elected President of Brazil Main Street in October.

After reading the letter, the members discussed options on moving forward. It was agreed to hopefully elect someone to lead the organization in February.

"We need a month," Vice President Jasen Gibbens said.

Meanwhile, the board discussed its upcoming Evening of Wine and Roses fundraiser.

The event was created last year and took place at the Renaissance Banquet Center, 101 W. National Ave., Brazil.

Chambers agreed to chair the committee, which would put together the event, tentatively scheduled for June 14.

The committee hopes to have the same vendors from last year's event.

In addition, the committee further discussed plans to honor former Brazil resident Charles B. Hall, the first Black American pilot to shoot down an enemy aircraft during World War II.

Members of the committee said they hoped to conduct a possible event in August, which would include World War II re-enactors and a showing of the film, "Red Tails," which depicts the crew of Black American pilots from the Tuskegee training program being called into duty. The film is scheduled to be released Jan. 20, nationwide.

Gibbens agreed to chair the committee, which would look into putting together the event.

In other news, the board:

* Learned they currently have $2,003.23 in an account.

The board meets regularly on the first Monday of each month at the Brazil Public Library. Its next scheduled meeting is Monday, Feb. 6, at 6 p.m.
