This is only achieved and sustained with sound leadership and the continued support of our general membership. There is more than just a few that can take the helm and represent our chapter with honor. Please assist us with your skills. Contact the nomination committee, Steve Culbert, Charles Hoak and Herb Taylor. The chapter is dependent upon your willingness to be an active member.

  

    Please mark your calendar for the chapter Christmas dinner that will be held on 13 December. Specific details will be made available at our 8 November chapter meeting. Best wishes to all and please think safety and be safe.

 Doing a good job here is like wetting your pants in a dark suit. It gives you a warm feeling, but nobody notices.
