This meeting marks our third anniversary as the Vampire Court of Dallas. We now have over 65 members and have over $15,000 for local causes.

Mike and Rayne have been voted in as directors of the court for another year.

Mike and Rayne will be the instructors for our next internal education workshop. They will be teaching members the basics involved in self-defense. This workshop will take place after Luck Be a Lady and the date will be posted to the members’ page shortly.

All Semifangs shoots are now done and the photos will be posted on all of the VCD’s social media accounts along with member’s stories as well as articles regarding suicide prevention during suicide prevention week; Sunday, September 8- Saturday, September 14, 2019. Members are encouraged to share these posts.

The welcoming committee had some openings. Three members stepped up and were nominated and then voted into the committee.

Charter Revision Q was voted in with no abstains and no objections.

The VCD welcomed two new members to the court.

A new social media moderator was nominated and voted in with one abstain and one objection.

Three other officers were up for reconfirmation. Brandon was voted to be a guardian for another year. Mary was voted to be our purser for another year. Lane was voted to be our Hospitaller for another year.

We will be hosting our annual toy drive again this year at the Church.

The unofficial name is currently “Holiday Horror” having a monster/ creature theme. This will be a three-day effort, with smaller events on Friday and Saturday and extra pick-up locations, and our big main event on Sunday.

Luck Be A Lady is coming up on Friday, September 13, 2019. Members have voted to donate 13% of merchandise sales to the cause (with 1 objection). VCD will be sponsoring a poker table in the VIP section of the event and taking donations from members up until the day of the event. There will be an added after party the day after the event at 4 Kahunas that is open to anyone who would like to join us.

Our two counselors have stepped down and will be moving away. Their vote to be members at large was voted in with many objections.

The social committee will not be hosting an event in September due to all the Luck Be A Lady events. There are talks of a camping trip to take place in October.
