Ryland Bailey gave a report about his "adoption"
into the family that came about with his association with

in 1982, but he still enjoys attending the Moore Family
The Chairman asked for a feasibility study about creating
an Internet Moore Family web page that could be visited
by persons all over the world and suggesting www.moorefamilyreunion.com
as its address. He asked for a committee to be formed for
the development and maintenance of such a site indicating
the cost would be in the neighborhood of $500.
Scott Beasley, Nikki Beasley and Ray Moore, Jr. were selected
as the research committee, with Haskell Moore as a consultant.
All have had experience in such developments. They will
make a recommendation to all and mailed via snail mail and
e-mail in the form of a ballot. This is to be accomplished
before next year's meeting that will be held October 20,
Motion was made that the current officers be retained for
the following year - carried. Arthur Haltiwanger asked the
question as what would it take to update the
Moore Family Book, last published in 1976. Several people
echoed this question. Harriet remembered an "Eric"
that was interested in doing the update, but that his last
name had escaped her. For quite awhile this thought was
being kicked around in the hope that someone with this type
of skill would step up to the plate, bringing up-to-date
the Moore Book. Meeting closed in prayer by E. Ray Moore,
Jr. Submitted by: Ken Moore, Secretary
