Well the summer is about over and school will
be starting after Labor Day. Watch for the kids
and make sure to stop for the buses.
We had a good meeting in August giving out
many service anniversary certificates and pins.
That's one of the best parts of my job. We have
members that have been part of our Chapter for
many, many years. The minutes have been
posted showing the details.
We are 61 members strong with quite a few
pending applications. I am very pleased how the
Chapter has grown in the last 7 years. Hopefully
with this doubling, more will be able to
volunteer and help out. There are not too many
events during the year so it shouldn't
overwhelm anyone's schedule.
This will be most likely my last note since my
daughter is in the process of passing the
website design and maintenance over to
Richard Wambach. She knows it was a simple,
beginning website and hopes that it can
continue to grow and be updated. It could use a
facelift (can't we all!). She will work with
RIchard over the next month or so. Richard may
have some new ideas at the next meeting.
Speaking of the next Chapter meeting...it will on
November 10 at the Pegasus in Coxsackie. I'm
stilling working on the menu and should mail
the invitations in November. Hope to see you
