March ABS Meeting
What a great meeting we had at Shorty's Pizza on Sunday. We filled up the restaurant and the great sounds of the Leonard Blush Band entertained us. We had lots of great food and drinks served up and we had a great jam. We proudly announced that the new ABS Blues webcast should be up and going by April 1, 2014. We also had some guests on hand. The Sean Costello Memorial Fund sponsored a representative who was available to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act. We also had a representative from the Blairsville Blues & BBQ Festival (Sept 19,20) who will be our newest Corporate Sponsor and he presented their fabulous package that they are offering us to raffle off to our membership, more on that at a later date. We also began our raffle for the 2 person 3 day pass to the Daytona Blues Fest (Oct 10, 11, 12) which we will continue to raffle off at the next 2 meetings.

We are excited to announce that our next meeting will be on Sunday, April 27, 2014 at The Greater Good BBQ in Tucker, GA. This meeting will feature Acoustic Music and will be hosted by three of our solo Musician Members, Steven "The Blues Dude" Duncan, Veronika Jackson and Brandon Reeves. We will also have an acoustic jam, so please bring your acoustic instruments and voices. The Greater Good BBQ is a non-smoking, family friendly restaurant that features great barbecue, Southern Home Cooking and an expansive beer selection.

The Atlanta Blues Society, as a Blues Affiliate has pledged $1,000 to help make it happen -- check it out -- We are the latest member of the 250 Club!

Since its earliest days, the Foundation has envisioned a Blues Hall of Fame. Artist renditions appeared as early as the 1983 Blues Music Award program. Foundation leaders have long recognized that, in addition to stability and operating efficiencies, a permanent home for The Blues Foundation will dramatically improve its ability to fulfill its mission.

A key component for the success of any organization is a sound fiscal base from which to meet its goals and objectives. In recent years, The Blues Foundation has built such a base while continuing to fulfill its mission in each of the above noted programs and activities.

In 2006, the Foundation adopted a strategic plan that embraced a permanent home. The following year, with a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis, the Foundation began work with Design 500 to discern requirements for and shape the new home—its location, size, space allocations, and programming priorities.

A suitable location was identified in December 2010—a condominium located at 421 South Main with approximately 3,800 square feet at street level and 7,700 square feet on the lower level. By this time, The Blues Foundation had quietly and steadily eliminated all debt and built reserves of more than $400,000. This financial strength enabled the Foundation to secure a short-term loan to help pay for the purchase of its new building and some basic renovations when this opportunity arose.

Foundation operations began there on July 5, 2011. With the first phase completed, The Blues Foundation continues to pursue its goal: a home that enhances the ability to carry out its mission.
