Will generously purchased and set up our web domain, and after a court vote, made it public.

Miss Kim graciously hosted the VCD early Fourth of July BBQ on Sunday, July 2, 2017.

Mike, with the advice of Ramon, has made more headway on a possible bank account with a credit union that has worked with charities in the past. We are currently on a waiting list.

Mind’s Eye Theater event- not enough interested to do an event in June, so it has been rescheduled for July 23, 2017, and Will has graciously offered to host it at his home.

Nicky Arnold (graphic designer) is still working on our submitted t-shirt designs and will have proof for members to vote on by the August meeting.

We have tentatively scheduled a group photoshoot with Aoife for December 8, 2017

Paige Skinner, a reporter from the Dallas Observer, has reached out to us several times for an interview with the Dallas “Vampires.” Since she was not willing to produce some sample questions, we have declined. She has decided to mention VCD in a different article, and while the statements made were neutral and easily found on our public Facebook page, a letter to her editor has been written. We would also like to remind our members to be mindful of how we represent the Court when interacting with the press and in any other social setting.
