1976-1977President David F. Welles
David F. Welles (1976-77) followed Don, and the program for his year was to set up a closer rapport among the other clubs in the Southern Nevada area as well as closer association with the district clubs throughout Nevada and Southern California. This campaign was highly successful and resulted in the assigning of the district assembly, the zone conference and the district conference in Southern Nevada. This came about when Dave and several other representatives from local clubs joined together to crash the political “inside” of the district and assert the Southern Nevada picture where never before had it been accepted. The foundation for the rapport among the Southern Nevada clubs was set up at the first countywide picnic that was held at Sunset Park with the Las Vegas Club as host.
