Visitation was Wednesday
board of directors had a meeting at a retreat in October “and decided to keep to our vision statement and abide by our bylaws.”
‘‘She resigned,” Camacho said without further elaboration.
When asked if Phillips was forced out, Dasher said she wasn’t sure what to say.
“I’m not sure if I want to say anything about that. I’m not sure if she was forced out or if it was a consensus of personal and professional conflicts. Susan saw things going one way and the other person saw things going another way. In any organization there must be unity,” she said. Dasher praised Phillips.
“I think the foundation laid by Susan is a good foundation. It’s a good organization and it has a good purpose and Susan will be missed. Its a sad moment when there’s this type of conflict. Hopefully, we can all move forward.” Phillips also said she was leaving the women’s chamber board because she wants to be involved in the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, the Republican Women’s club, her church

and to spend more time with her daughter, who’s involved in amateur theater, and her son, who’s soon to graduate from high school.
Phillips questioned the need for a women’s chamber when tensions have eased between the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce and the women’s chamber.
Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Inc. President Michael Meek, who offered a “no comment" when asked what he thought of Phillips’ resignation, said he’d welcome Phillips’ participation in the Greater Chamber.
“That’s great," he said. “Susan’s been a member in the past. We have 2,040 members and we d love to have her on the team. We have lots to do and membership is open to anyone.”
Phillips said she would maintain her ties with the women’s chamber, “just not on a board level,”
She said calling a women’s networking group a chamber and excluding men from it were two mistake's she made. She alae) said she doesn’t see th<* women’s chamber grow-

Zoeller Funeral Home
mg and feels it should focus on networking and inclusion of men.
Women’s chamber President Beverly Krock, who said the group did include men, would not comment on Phillip’s resignation.
“Since we do not have a formal resignation, we cannot comment at this time," Krock said.
Phillips, who said she was not forced out, said she was resigning to “do the right thing for the board.” She claimed she would probably be back on the board of directors within eight months when the board has elections.
Women’s chamber Interim Membership Committee Chair linda Lange said she was reluctant to talk about Phillips’ leaving and would do so, along with Krock, when Phillips’ resignation letter was in her hands.
“Until we have it writing, her resignation is hearsay,” Lange said. “I want her to follow through in writing if she intends to resign. But there was no ultimatum. And I’m very sad about her resigning. Shes an assot to the group."
“We’re cleaning tretches of road, parks, inner-city community centers, beach areas," Hauler said I Ie and his associates have raised money for t h« * charity by selling T-shirts, which are also being sold on the charity’s Web site, www.yardmatt.coni. and at clean-up events

Cleaning up the environment is a central part of Hauler’s life. The Sierra Club member said he’s been a "big environmental guy' for a long time. He believes in a beaut iful, clean country*
“ Keep America Beautiful' has statistics that show that cleaner, more beautiful com rn uni ties are safer for our children,” Hauler said. Clean, beautiful communities often have less drugs and crime. Being a father himself, Hauter understands the importance of making communities better places for children.
“It feels really good to be a part of something like that,” he said "I want to teach my kids ii they’re passionate about something, they need to get involved with it. Ii would siH'in hypocritical that if presented with an oppor
tunity to make a small difference, that I would not do it ”
Hauter still believes he will arrive in New York at the expected time.
“I think by the time we get to Dallas on Sunday, we should be all caught up,” he said.
He said bis fellow Yard-Man crewmen, Tim Egan and (’had Cook, have enjoyed thi* trip through central and south Texas.
“I think the camaraderie and just being with all the guys and taking a vacation away from home have been the most fun about the trip,” Cook said. "We’ve had a real good experience, and at the same time, we know its for a good cause.”
“We get lo see all the towns, Egan said. "The weather's good to US. The days go by quick.”
