“Plans are underway,” stated T.C. Hall, one of the newest board members of the Flora Macdonald Legacy Foundation. Hall made the statement during a board meeting this past Saturday at the home of Patsy Conoley referring to the next Flora Macdonald Ball to be held in October of 2008. The ’07-’08 board of directors, as well as outgoing founder, Gaitley Stevenson-Mathews, met over the weekend to make plans for the ball and other events and projects to be held during the next year. Those interested in learning more about the Foundation, the annual ball or opportunities for involvement are encouraged to talk to Foundation board members, committee members and volunteers who will be wearing “ASK ME ABOUT THE BALL” buttons this Saturday at the Flora Macdonald Highland Games.
