Our two new NOMADS Board Members begin their 4 year terms on Thursday this week. Congratulations to Gary Hatcher, our new At-Large Board Member and to Bill Koch, our new South Central Jurisdictional Representative on the Board. We appreciate the dedication and many involvements of our outgoing board members this year, Dan Brown (board chairman) and Eugene Wengert (treasurer). Their work has impacted the future of NOMADS in so many ways. They will both be missed on our Board of Directors.

NOMADS will be recognized during a luncheon with the Kiwanis club on February 24th and a banquet on Saturday, March 5th by the Chamber of Commerce, for an estimated 10,000 hours of community service in Taft, Texas since first coming here in 2005. Congratulations go out to all of those Nomads that have worked so hard in Taft. It is believed most of the current team will be in attendance at the banquet to speak for all Nomads.
