She reported the major goal of Islam is to become the #1 religion. The statistics: 100,000 in U.S. convert each year with 90% being African-American

At a called Board of Directors meeting, a major event occurred. Over the years, our club has accumulated a large sum of money now in our investments. At our last meeting  President Janet Shepherd referred to this issue. Mildred Mallard recalled that Willie Pegram had suggested the five members in the club (who played a significant part in this accumulation of this wealth) be appointed as a committee to determine what should be done with the funds. At our board meeting, Mildred Mallard nominated a committee with the members to be: Willie Pegram, David Brown, Bill Riggs, Frank Grant and Hayes Ratledge . Their challenge to determine what should be done with the funds in our investments accounts. This motion was approved and the committee is now active and will report back to the board.
