MADD regroups in Franklin County
By RICHARD F. BELISLE
MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Members of the Franklin County chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, told by state MADD officials that the chapter was in danger of losing its charter for lack of activity, is once again a viable organization, local President Brenda Thomas said Friday.
The chapter was not holding regular meetings, did not have a functioning board of directors, had no office space and had not been running MADD programs, Thomas said.
Organizers of the chapter in 1985 were Larry Thomas, chief of the Mercersburg Police Department and Brenda Thomas' husband, and Beverly Sanders of St. Thomas, Pa., who served eight years as president until 1993.
