It was good to hear from you the other day. I'm glad to hear that you are in good health. Praise the Lord!!!!
I mentioned to you that I wanted to send you a photo. I figured it to be extremely important that the Chancellors know their Founding Fathers. Attached is a picture of our first official meeting that was held at Gonzales Park (name has since changed) in Compton. This was the first set of officers plus a couple of distinguished guests. In case you forgot some of their names, I have listed them below. You'll have to help me with some of the titles. I forgot a few of them.
Top Row, left to right:
Ivan Beatty - Sargeant at Arms
Douglas Dollarhide - first Black Mayor of Compton
Raymond Santee - President
Olten Blouin - President, Unity Credit Union
Bottom Row, left to right:
Marcus "Artie) Ross - Business Manager
Wilburn Hodge - Secretary
You must admit...... these are some handsome dudes!!!!! By the way, I haven't changed at all (hahaha)....maybe a few added pounds but we probably all have that issue.......
I hope this little piece of history inspires the club. I am impressed that they are still active.
