At the January meeting of the FWDBC board, newly elected members Bob Enyeart (at left in photo), Phil Eyermann and Dave Hoevel (second and third from left) began serving their three-year terms. They were joined by Penny Henshaw, selected by the board to complete Kim Grant’s remaining one-year term.



Board members elected their officers for 2019 at the same meeting. They are Stan Davis (President), Judy Nelsen (Secretary) and Carl Wheeler (Treasurer). The board meets the second Wednesday of each month after the Wednesday duplicate game. Minutes are available on the FWDBC website (Club page) and in the building Library after they have been approved.
