I meet with a large group of ladies every week for lunch, we were discussing why Ms Meredith has never reconized the committee members that work so hard on the auction? You know it would be nice to introduce all the committee members and workers. Also have 2 other questions do the committee members get a copy of the financial report and who makes the decision on who this auction benefits?

I would like to know how the chairperson is elected? I heard the members have no idea who they help or how much money they have in their account. That's not the way u run an organization. Members should elect officers,chairperson, asst chairperson, secetary and treasuer at every meeting there should be a treaure report. I was also told only Ms. Mereith is allowed to handle the money and she is th only one who knows where the money goes. There are 2 other members that get all the glory and they never show up at meeting. I know of 3 members that are quiting after this year and can undertand why.

We are all too familiar with this kind of situation. It exits wherever we go, in every kind of organization that exits, as well as our day to day work situations.

I belong to a church where some of the most dedicated, consistently hard working people are never recognized.

Then there are the three people that are always up front when pictures are being taken for publication in the church newsletter. These same three people are the ones that seem to get credit for just about everything that is done, although in truth, do the least amount of work, if any at all. It is amazing, but this goes on year after year.

Of course, the good, hardworking people that get no recognition are the kind of people with modesty and humility. They do not do the work for the sake of being recognized. They do get recognition the kind of recognition that really counts, and that is what is truly important. I believe they understand.

Listen, the r 3 party has helped my family without hesitation. They have helped others with cancer I know. If you are trying to run it down, just say so. You are pushing awfully hard to make a scandal out of a lot of hard working workers and a great group. We all have just about figured out who is doing this and why, and we know why but are compassionate enough not to say. I love ms. Meideth and the group, and i support them and respect what they do! Keep doing it guys, don't let this poster, glory seeker, stirrer of manure bring you down. We know who she is and she has to look in the mirror at herself before she goes to bed each night. We also iunderstand her agenda and I pray she will find some true peace in her life!

The money goes to a good cause! They have helped my family before when my grandmother had cancer and she had to travel back n forth. Well she has cancer again and they're helping. You can contact Johnna Green at Hayti hospital for gas vouchers. You don't know who the money is helping due to the HIPPA LAW!!! If the person wants you to know then they will tell you. But when a person has cancer you don't really talk about it bc when you hear that "word" you automatically think death. Have a little respect. I understand you might be 1 of the hard workers that is helpin w this benefit and you would like to be recognized but remember god sees what you are doing and it could be you w cancer. The tables can always turn. Pray they don't!!! God will show his appreciation in another way. But I suggest since I am a parent of a student that attends that school at the next meeting bring something up about a newsletter about the R3 party and adding a special thanks to all the volunteers for putting this benefit together each year, and send one home with each student!!! That way the parents know what is going on and if there is another way we can help out.

justme I agree. most of the people who do the work for years and years are not doing it to be recognized. I pretty much know who this is and she is just begging for attention and to stir trouble directed in a specific direction. This group helps MANY and is a great group!
Well to you

I don't think any of the members are involved in this, I know several of them and the recognizion is not the a concern. How ever my question would be if you have 3 or 4 members that know who they help and any gas station that they use knows who they are then why can't the other members know. No one is bashing Ms Meredith but if I was a committee member I would want to know where the money goes, you would not have to give names but just account for the money that has been spent. It's only right that a treasures report be given to the committee members. Far as I know everyone thinks Ms Meredith does a good job.
Well to you

Ok, exists, sorry about that. Don't think it is an earthshaking mistake. I figured some anal, spelling police type would catch that. Good for you. Thank you.

If you're going to post and bitch, at least sound credible! You might get taken more seriously....but probably not! Using correct grammar is a pet peeve of mine. Just because you're anonymous doesn't change the opinion formed by your post!

It has to be a committee member or they wouldn't say some of the things they are pointing too. They need to stop. It is someone trying to stir a bunch of crud about this great group. Like i said, we have it figured out, just someone seeking glory! Let it go honey, if you don't like them, don't support them! But don't come on here and try to bash a great group because you are not getting the glory you thunk you deserve. Ans Ms, Merideth - you go, cause you rock with what you have done! Thank you r- 3 committe for all you do!
Leave them alone

First......"HIPPA" has nothing to do with the R 3 party and who they give gas vouchers too. It is for access to health information and health insurance portability.

Second... If you think they are misappropriating funds contact the Missouri highway patrol, give them your "evidence" and if they think "your evidence" has any merit they will investigate. Otherwise stop running your mouth about things you do not have all the information about.

Third...if you do not agree with how an organization is managed, then do something about it or step to the side, shut up and don't get involved. I'm sure they will not miss the $1.98 you donated.

So now the cats out of the bag on the real issue here isn't it? Those who are involved want a "public spotlight" appearance or "pat on the back" and the "look at me" instead of concentrating on the main goal of the R-3 party was created for,..."HELPING PEOPLE".

You people disgust me into being selfish as some of you sound, and if you want to be "recognized" then step up and take the bull by the horns. I didn't hear of anyone else taking on the challenge that Mrs Merideth took on after Mrs Dunavant was no longer able to be the coordinator for this charitable event.

You want a "social scene" not a fund raising gathering to help people. Pathetic to say the least.
