President, Captain John Long, called the meeting of the Piedmont Silver Eagles Charitable Funds, Inc. to order at 9:10am on Monday, October 16, 2017.

Minutes from the last meeting, November, 2016, were read. The meeting was conducted in November 2016, by teleconference due to the cancellation of the reunion due to Hurricane Matthew.  A motion was made by Captain Buddy Bowen to approve the minutes as posted and seconded by Captain Ron Gabor.  The motion passed unanimously.

Ms. Janice Drimer, Co-Secretary/Treasurer of PSECFI, gave the treasurer’s report. She stated that we have assets at Edward Jones that stand at $20,472.75.  There are seven (7) students currently receiving scholarships. We (PSECFI) have committed $32,000.00 for those students graduating in 2018-through 2021.  Also, because of Hurricane Mathew and the 2016 reunion being cancelled, it denied the PSECFI memorabilia sales and donations. We discussed the generosity of the Tom Davis Foundation and how much it helped our charitable giving.  Ms. Drimer stated that we may not be able to give any or as much to our Humanitarian recipients as in the past

The Board agreed that we should consider offering some of our older memorabilia on a discounted table next year. We need to add new merchandise and limit supplies for next year.

Captain Danny Thurber was asked if he would consider being PSECFI Secretary/Treasurer.  A motion was made by Captain Clif Ferguson to elect Captain Danny Thurber as PSECFI Secretary/Treasurer after he expressed his  willingness to serve in  the position.  It was seconded by Captain Owen Brown.  The motion passed unanimously.

Mr. Ron Beck was added to the Board and Janice Drimer was added as a Member at Large.
