COMMANDER'S COMMENTS

       Don Netschke

Where has the time gone? At our age it seems that each day or month passes by all too quickly It seems as if just a couple months ago Itook command of our Chapter. But within just a little over one month, on January 1,you will have a new commander in 

.charge of the Chapter year of 2017. I wish him much success.  Further, I request that the mem­bership continue to give their total support for moving our Chapter for­ward to broadening our commitment to the prin­- ciples on which our Chap­ter purpose is founded.

      Be reminded that no commander can succeed in his leadership with­ out strong support from the base membership itself. Every member is responsible to ensure that they are contributors to the success of the Chapters mission. I am confident that the officers and former officers of our Chapter will continue to support and provide guidance  when called upon.

      Having said that, I wish to extend my appreciation for all that they  have rendered in support of my year as your commander. As to the growth in our Chapter membership, I stand at attention and salute each of you for your job well done.
