She gave each of them an antique-style skeleton key to keep as a memento and to remind them that the key to the success of RCAS depends on its volunteers to serve as board members, chairmen of various exhibits and committee chairmen of a variety of other important tasks. She then introduced the incoming officers for the 2016-2017 year. Finally, she presented a gift certificate and a framed certificate of recognition to Dick and Carol Powell who have served for several years as Treasurers for RCAS.
