Haven’t we had a great summer? Not too hot, cool nights and plenty of rain   God is so good. Bettye and I recently spent a few days visiting family in Savannah, Ga

  You don’t know what summer is unless you visit Savannah in July or August. Recently the Board of Directors has been discussing appropriate uses for the resources we have been able to accumulate.  These uses of course will be in keeping with the purposes and objectives of the Chapter as set forth in the Associations bylaws.

 Briefly these objectives are, in addition to organizing and providing a means of contact and communications among the membership, to aid disadvantaged members and their spouses and children

The finance committee has been tasked to make recommendations for these expenditures for the Board to consider. Having collected these funds from the public for the expressed use for the benefit of veterans we are obligated to use them for exactly that. The committee has met and will be making a presentation at the September Board meeting. Of course any appropriate suggestion from the membership will be considered as well. After due consideration whatever the Board decides will be incorporated in next year’s budget. Therefore, there is no immediate deadline for suggestions to be considered. Please, if you have a suggestion let us know of it. As always, I welcome any comments on this or any other subject.

Remember !!! Save the Date: Oct 7th .
