Don Bidwell, Grove City, OH, was elected to succeed Larry Bidwell of Raleigh, NC, as President of the Association. Jim Bidwell, OH, Zeb Bidwell, IA, & Ruth Tyrol, CT, were elected to the Board of Directors.

The annual Banquet and auction provided an opportunity for folks to get re-acquainted and to enjoy one another’s company.

After Sunday’s Memorial Service, a tour of the Folk Art Center on The Blue Ridge Parkway was on the agenda, followed by a tour of the Thomas Wolfe Home.

Monday the group toured the famous Biltmore Mansion, had lunch at the Deer Park Restaurant and ended the day with a tour of the Biltmore Winery.

The 2008 Reunion will be held in the Superior, WI, Duluth, MN area on dates to be determined.
