and “dress down”.  When I say “us” I am including myself also because I have been guilty of being out of uniform at times while wearing shorts and T-shirts to our meetings.  We all can, and should, do better.  I would encourage everyone to begin wearing your uniform (if you have one) to our meetings again.  Wearing our uniform shows your pride in your Chapter and I feel it will add to the decorum and professionalism of our meetings, especially when we have guests in attendance.  If you do not have a uniform, please contact our Quartermaster, Fred Haymaker, and Fred will assist you in acquiring whatever you need.   

 

Thank you.

Reminder! We are still seeking a person to take the Chaplain/Members’ Services committee chairman’s position.

Please consider helping out with this committee - even if you feel you cannot take the chairmanship.  

It has been a little difficult to keep up with our members during this period of “no meetings.” The word-of-mouth network is not very active.
