Greetings brothers and sisters,
Well, it has been a very long winter and hopefully it is coming to an end now. The chapter has been very busy with meetings and getting ready for our election and “Welcome Home” celebration. This will be the first one since it officially became a holiday.
We will have our election at our April meeting, so plan on being there. We will elect a president, senior vice president, junior vice president, treasurer, secretary and 3 board directors, plus our delegates to the State Council meeting and election. The council meeting is tied in with the veterans celebration in Deadwood on May 2,3,4
One other thing: we are selling raffle tickets for the elk hunt and the fishing trip,
so please sell and turn in your tickets. The money we raise is what makes it possible to help needy veterans. And that, plus honoring our veterans are what we are about. Our Honor Guard does a fantastic job of that – they have been very busy at funerals and have logged a lot of miles. They are still in need of new members. If you would like to join them, contact Floyd, Connie or Jerry.
Thanks for letting me be your president this last year.
