CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS
Past Commander Narce Caliva

    At our January Membership meeting, Past Commander, Narce Caliva, receives a well deserved "Certificate of Leadership Recognition" from our newly elected Commander, Don Netschke, in appreciation for Narce's hard work and dedicated service to our Chapter while serving as Commander for the calendar years 2014-15. Thank you Narce for a job very well done!

FROM THE CHAPLAIN-Raleigh Watson

    We have had just a few changes in status of our members of which I am aware since our last Chatter. We had "misplaced" Charles (Bud) Boyce for a bit - with his phone disconnected - but through the efforts of Josh Morimoto, we have found him at the Martinsburg VA Hospital. He is being evaluated for possible back surgery, has closed his home in Augusta, and for now, at least, may be reached at his hospital room - 304-262-1220 or probably better, his cell phone - 304-263-0811. Thank you, Josh for tracking him down and spending an hour or so with him at the hospital. If anyone else can make the trip, please do so, or perhaps make a phone call.

    James Berry has had a little more surgery on his foot, was in rehab for a while, but now with his daughter in Ruckersville - (Cell phone is 540-533-2000). He is in good spirits, but always appreciates a brief call. Please call him!

    Repeating the info on Art Jolliffe, who is at Spring Arbor - across from Walmart on Rt 50W. Again I urge that if possible, you try to visit him. Thank you to those of you who have! It is easy to reach for those of you in the Winchester area, and parking is convenient. Even a short visit means a great deal to Art. He wants visitors!

    Warden Jenkins is still undergoing evaluation with a heart monitor to determine whether treatment is needed - but he his home and doing well.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
