Community Service Project. Our annual community service project was discussed. The board was split between accepting donations for “No more Homeless Pets”, and the “City Reserve Mission”. Jennifer will put up information on Facebook and John Kessler will put up this information on the website. Since Thanksgiving is coming up, it was decided to accept no-perishable food for the food drive until November 17, the Vanderbilt game. We will need empty boxes to use for the donations. Donations for the pets were also encouraged.

New Board Members. We had interest from quite a few people interested in participating on the board. The board decided to ask the following six people to join:

Helene Smith
Debby Bowman
Chris Teague
Lindsay Murphy
Colin Marcum
Molly Heath

Ed has sent an email out to all six people inviting them to join. As of 10/16, Chris has accepted to join the board.

Location: Cracker Barrel
Date: February 29, 2012

The Big Orange Caravan (BOC) is scheduled for Jacksonville tentatively on May 16. This is the reason for this special meeting. The BOC will be limited to a banquet due to the short time frame for planning a golf tournament. The BOC will be the chapter’s spring event. The chapter is in the early planning stage with a number of venues under consideration. The chapter’s web site, jaxvols.com and Facebook page will provide updated information.

In view of the BOC, a night at a Jacksonville Suns baseball game is being postponed until 2013.

Another item discussed was a one day bowling tournament with other Southeastern Conference (SEC) alumni chapters in the Jacksonville area possibly in the early summer.

Planning for the spring banquet will be expedited pending advisement of the date and speaker by the University of Tennessee Alumni Association (UTAA).

Other events the chapter is considering for the non football season months are a bowling tournament with other southeastern conference university alumni chapters, a night at a Jacksonville Suns baseball game, and quarterly socials (happy hours).

The chapter has been invited to be represented, at a special college fair at Ponte Vedra High School on April 19, 2012.

Other items discussed included a possible special license plate program similar to one in Georgia (where certain license plates contain a small orange “UT”), a Tournament Players Championship (TPC) group sales program, and new business cards for the chapter.

Location: Residence of Mike Deitschmann
Date: October 11, 2011

Ed Galvavy has volunteered to participate in the college fair scheduled for October 15 2011 from 9am until 1pm.

A motion passed unanimously for the chapter to pursue an update of the bylaws to allow electronic voting by the chapter membership on new officers and board members. This update is needed because of the change of operations to a calendar year basis and the fact that current bylaws call for the election to be held at the spring banquet. Also discussed were the slate of officer nominees for 2012 and the search for new board members.

The chapter’s annual food drive will take place at the MTSU game viewing party on November 5.


The Jacksonville, Florida Chapter of the University of Tennessee Alumni Association is open to all former students, friends and family of any of the University of Tennessee campuses.
