COMMANDER'S COMMENTS

PRIDE - what does this mean to you? Webster defines it as the quality or state of being proud, as a reasonable or justifiable self-respect, or delight or elation arising from some act or possession.

Don Netschke

    Pride is a necessary ingredient in every man's life. You take pride in your home by keeping it painted and repaired and yes, even cutting the grass and trimming the shrubs. You take pride in your new automobile by keeping it clean, polished and tuned up. You show pride in yourself by

looking neat and well-groomed and you exhibit pride in your family by showing pictures of your newest grandchild.

    Pride is a necessary ingredient in the maintenance and growth of our Chapter and organization. A mem-ber who does not have pride in what he does as a member cannot be a strong contributing member. A member takes pride in his membership by attending meetings whenever he can, and participates in the conduct of those meetings when able, will volunteer to contribute his energies in undertaking the workings of our organization. He will exhibit his pride by doing the job   (con't on page 4)
