GFGS Annual Meeting & Pot Luck

A great time was had by all at the Society’s Annual Meeting & Pot Luck Thursday evening. Before the group got down to business, there was a lot of food to snarf down and Society President Larry Spicer conducted a couple of rounds of “Genealogy Jeopardy”.

Willard Cook was recognized for his many years of volunteer service to the Society and Darryl L. Flowers, publisher of the Fairfield Sun Times, was named “Volunteer of the Year” by Jan Thomson for his tremendous support of the Society in 2016. Closing out the meeting, the 2017 officers (elected by acclamation as they didn’t have any opponents) were sworn into office:
