Major Roy Williams gave the invocation at Tuesday’s United Way Annual Meeting (to view the invocation click READ MORE at the bottom of this post), attended by hundreds of United Way supporters including a table from TSA. Captains Cindy and Warren Jones, Captain Patrick Gesner, Lieutenants Jamie and Clay Russell, along with myself, David Litterell, Lindsay Sparks and Veronica Ramirez attended.
Last year’s William Booth Society chair and former TSA board president Becky Frank made United Way history by becoming the first individual female to be a United Way Annual Campaign Chair in 2013 and Board Chair in 2014. Congratulations Becky. Bill Thomas, TSA chair of the 2009 William Booth Society Benefit Dinner was recognized for being the 2002 United Way board chairman. United Way president Mark Graham said the 2009 campaign was a lot like the Winter Olympics: some very good highs and some fairly low lows, but the goal was reached despite the challenges. Mark said the 2010 Annual Campaign will have a new focus on the contributions of small businesses.
