The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) reorganized and elected new officers last week.
Left to right are James R. Soileau, vice president; Odelia Boykins, treasurer/secretary; and Arthur Sampson, president. The organization plans to meet on the first Wednesday of each month. They invited interested persons, regardless of race or religion, to their December 3, meeting at the Martin Luther King Center at 6:30 p.m. The organization still has positions for another vice president and secretary. Sampson said the organization will be focusing on the ongoing desegregation case with the schools, judicial system and other issues in the community. They are working on a post office box and a membership drive. Yearly fees are $30 per adult and $15 per child. For more information, call Sampson at 336-1389 or Soileau at 793-0635.
