A tribute to Bob Cole was first on the agenda at the annual meeting of the River Bend Golf Course on Saturday, Feb 8, 2014. Bob turns 100 soon, and has been actively involved in the golf course since the beginning. Over 40 shareholders attended the meeting to wish him well. Bob was unable to attend, but his plaque and birthday cupcakes were special delivered! Following committee reports and thank yous to the outgoing board members, Dallas Kray and Mike Ness, the election of new board members and officers was conducted. Pictured are front row (from left): Chuck Semler, Secretary; Kevin Watson, Vice President; Rhonda Ostrem, Treasurer; Rich Olive, President; Back row (from left): Claude Hovick, Rod Bohner, Gloria Oberender, Ben Winecoff, Jay Warburton and Gene Schaeffer. Committee chairs were also named. The golf course is now looking forward to Opening Day, dependent totally on the weather, however! Stay tuned!
