Due to the resignation of a Cherokee Boys Club Board of Directors member, a vacancy has opened for a board member.  The Boys Club’s Bylaws provide that “If a Board Member resigns before the term expires, replacement will be made by holding a special election.  The Board Member elected in this special election would serve the remainder of the term until the next regular election.”  The next regular election will be held in August of 2014 for the term of Oct. 1, 2014 through Sept. 30, 2016.

Nominations for the vacant Board seat will be accepted Monday, March 4 through Friday March 8 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Boys Club Lobby.  You must be a Club member and present your membership card (anyone who attended Cherokee High School or Middle School) to nominate candidates.  Candidates for the Board must also be Club Members (anyone who attended Cherokee High School or Middle School).  You do not have to be a Boys Club employee to make a nomination or to be nominated.

If you do not have a Club membership card, you may receive one free of charge at the Information Window of the Boys Club.  Again, you must have attended Cherokee High School or Middle School to become a Club member.  At the end of the nomination period, all nominees will be contacted to see if they are willing to run in a special election to become a Board member to represent the Cherokee Boys Club.  A copy of the election rules can be obtained from the Boys Club.  Call 497-9101 for additional information.


Set your clocks forward one hour when you go to bed on Saturday night.  Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday, March 10.
