Renaissance calls open meeting Monday night to discuss its future and recruit new leadership

Midway Renaissance will conduct an open meeting Monday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Midway Christian Church to discuss the organization's future. Outgoing President Randy Thomas says the group is looking for volunteers to serve as board members and other leadership positions.

In the past year, Renaissance has experienced personnel losses caused by staff resignations and members rotating to a volunteer status. In a letter notifying the city of the meeting, Thomas wrote: "We will hold this public discussion to inform our community of the opportunities that exist for this community and volunteer driven organization."

Thomas plans to leave the Renaissance board at the end of the year, "and the other board officers do not intend to run again after serving for a number of years," says a notice on the group's web page. "Change in leadership is good for an organization and both Midway Renaissance and Francisco's Farm are in need of new leadership and additional volunteers if they are to continue."
