The Vietnam Veterans of America National Chapter of the Year - 1999 & 2007
President’s Message -
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
Well, here we go again with one of the coldest winters on record and I cannot get warm! I hope you all are having better luck at warmth! Everyone seems to have, or has had, a cold. I for one am ready for warm weather. Everyone that I know who is able to travel south has ‘left frigid Michigan’…..the best to you; send some warm sunshine this way, ok? Even my furnace is fighting this stuff! I hope that the good Lord will bless us soon with a turn-around on these ‘negative’ temperatures and start sending the thermometer into warmer numbers….right now 30 degrees sounds like a heatwave!
We just had our first round of nominations at the last meeting. If you are interested in holding an office, please let someone know so that we may get you nominated and on the ballot. It would be great if we can get some new faces ‘up front’. We work hard as a chapter and are there for the officers. It is “our Chapter”. Elections are in April, just a month away, so please consider placing your name ‘in the hat’.
We hosted the fundraiser for Operation Never Forgotten (ONF) at Frenchie’s this past week; and, from what I could tally, it was another successful one. It is great to see so many people from our Chapter and other acquaintances come out to support such a worthy group. John, as always, you did another awesome job! These guys and gals are the future of America, and we must show that we care; not only as fellow veterans, but as citizens of this great nation.
I hope this finds everyone in good health and handling the winter blahs! Spring is almost here (at least the calendar says so); let’s speak those words LOUDLY…..”SPRING IS ALMOST HERE!” New life; rain for the growth, trees’ leaves, flowers, sunshine bringing smiles…….Enjoy life, my friends!
