Patty King entertained her fellow Knox board members at a cocktail supper at her Hillyer High home recently, as they welcomed some of the community’s busiest people to their energetic group.
Longtime patron Art Moore and RMC administrator David McCormack are the newest executive board members. Jason Alderman of BB&T, Linda Jenkins of Regions Bank, Tom Potts of Potts Marketing and Jack Swift of Southern States Bank will serve on the advisory board.
The reception was a nice opportunity for this dynamic cadre to relax and visit with fellow board members and their spouses. Also attending were honorary lifetime board members Pete Chalk with his wife Barbara and Glenn Andrews with his wife Joanne.
The buffet table centerpiece was a huge assortment of spring flowers, and the supper, prepared by Classic Catering, featured a raisin-stuffed pork, marinated chicken and pasta salad. Servers passed around bacon-wrapped scallops and mini barbecue sandwiches.
Standing in Patty’s pretty living room, Chairman Rick Westbrook toasted the new and senior board members, then used the occasion to throw down the gauntlet for the group to sell out the season during the spring campaign.
So much for relaxing!
But the good news is they did succeed, and the sold-out season opens in October with five-time Grammy Award winner Michael McDonald, a classical performance of the Haifa Symphony Orchestra of Israel, and other great events to be announced.
A few weeks after this delightful gathering, Rick turned over the gavel of chairmanship to Phil Webb at the May meeting of the board at Anniston Country Club. Phil read the long and impressive list of Rick’s accomplishments in his two years as chairman, and Mandi King, series president, presented a gift from the board.
