New Board and Officer Positions

For separate and personal reasons two members of the Board of Directors, specifically, Mike Pasco (Secretary) and Stephen Pasco (Community Relations) recently tendered their resignations.  They are continuing as active club members to the extent their respective schedules will permit them to do so. We wish them well.  We thank them for their exemplary service to the Andover Sportsmen's Club and we look forward to a time when they may again be able to participate in leadership roles.  Accordingly, I also ask that you welcome two new Board Members: Lee Anne Webb as Secretary, and Doug Cooper, as Director of Community Relations.
