Chapter Update

Dennis Clippinger - Serving Chapter President
Greetings, 
 
The year is flying by, it’s April already and the Chapter has been busy.  We just had our April Executive Board meeting and I wanted to take a moment for a Chapter Update. 
 
But first, please get out your calendar and go to 7 May and Save the Date.  Our first Annual Meeting in May is fast approaching and it will be an exciting and fun evening.  Social time begins at 5:30 PM with our dinner and program at 6:00.  Our guest speaker is a National Board member with an update on what MOAA is doing at the national level.  I think you will find this to be a very informative presentation. We are inviting our scholarship recipients at all levels along with the Senior ROTC cadets at Cameron.  To provide a little more motivation to attend, there will be some great door prizes and liquid libation will be available for those who desire.  Please make plans to attend and send your RSVPs to Marilyn; this will be a great event.
 
Speaking of scholarships, the Scholarship Committee has been active in gathering and reviewing applications and has already selected this year’s recipients from an outstanding group of students.  These scholarships are only possible through the donations of individuals, families and our corporate donors.  At last count, there were 16 Century Club members (those who have donated $100 or more) for 2019.  That is fantastic.  Thank you for your generous support of this program.
 
If you have not done so already, I ask you to take part in contacting our state and national legislators and advocating for those issues that have been identified by national as priorities for this year.  There are many ways to do this.  The March and April 2019 issues of Military Officer have preformatted letters and postcards already addressed to key members of Congress.  Some of our members have already received replies which show that these letters do have an impact.  You can also click on “Take Action” on our home page and voice your support online.  You can also phone your representatives.  Whatever your preferred method of contact, make your voice heard.
 
I hope by now that each of you has taken the time to review our Chapter Goals and Objectives for 2019 and have considered how to be a part of our success this year.  Membership is a priority this year and is one way that everyone can help.  Everyone knows someone.  Maybe it’s an old friend that you haven’t seen at a meeting this year; maybe it’s a new acquaintance.  Just ask!
 
Thanks for all you do and I hope to see you at our Annual Dinner in May.
