Thirteen individuals met March 10 to begin establishing a board for the new Friends of White Rock Creek Trail group. By the end of the evening they had elected a president (Marc Mumby), vice president (Jan De Meulder), secretary (Martha Kimbrell) and treasurer (Steve Marsden).

The group needs immediate help from volunteers who have experience filing for non-profit status with the Texas Secretary of State and the IRS.

The board also agreed to start a Founder’s Campaign to solicit initial funding for the Friends group.  Jim Hoyt, owner of Richardson Bike Mart, has pledged $5,000.
