The Modern Study Club opened their new club year on September 11, 2002 as they met in the parlor of the First Christian Church, 432 S. Elm, Pecos. The thought-quote for the meeting was, "It is never too late to become what you might have been." - George Eliot. The title of the program was "Projections for 2002-2003" by Joyce Morton.

Then Nan Cate, who had previously conducted an installation ceremony for the 2002-2004 officers at the club's close of year and luncheon festivities in May, installed Joyce Morton as president. Mrs. Morton theme is "Light tomorrow with today-volunteer."

President Morton then began presiding. Opening ceremonies, which included the saying of the Club Collect and the pledges to the United States of America and Texas flags, were conducted. Paula Fuller, secretary, read the minutes of the two previous meetings and Pearl Gustafson treasurer, gave a statement concerning club finances.

After the president's welcome she presented an our view of the new club yearbooks especially sighting the field trips to Peggy Kelton's Ranch where the Wind Turbines will be viewed and told about as a Conservation Department program, and the tour of the Pecos Electronic Scoring Site with Shirley Shaffer as guide, which will be a Public Affairs Department Program.
