April Meeting Highlights.
Please check page 2 for activities and dues due this month. You don’t want to be removed from Nationals’ mailing list. On Thursday April 12th,, Shirley and I had the opportunity to again visit
John Moreland at Consulate Health Care in Woodstock. We had another nice visit, reminiscing of times past. If anyone is in that area, please consider going in for a visit to room 344. He does not get many visitors.
April has been a very busy month for the Chapter. Many activities have taken place, and are covered in other areas of this newsletter. The April 20/21 fund raiser turned out to be exciting. On Friday the temperature was low and the wind got increasingly stronger, however Saturday was the complete opposite with great sunshine and comfortable temps. Again, many of our members worked both days, and some even double shifts to insure coverage. We all got to meet some very interesting people and shared some interesting stories. The time flew by.
Tuesday, April 10th was a special day for Chapter 313. It was 10 years ago in 2008 that the Chapter received its Charter from KWVA National President Lou Dechert. At this meeting, Charter members present were recognized, and the Chapter enjoyed a Birthday cake and punch after the meeting.
Guest speakers for this event were:
David Hearn, who updated the members on the concert to be held on April 22nd.
VA District 29 Delegate Chris Collins, who gave an update on Veterans related legislation pending in Richmond.
Chapter 313 member and KWVA Executive director Jim Fisher, who reviewed the upcoming events for Veterans in the Washington area.
We were reminded by “Peachie” DeHaven that for the upcoming Chapter picnic on July 22nd, he will be taking sign-ups and collection of $13.00 per person at the May and June meetings.
