FROM THE PRESIDENT
by Rich Underwood
Merry Christmas to all and happy holidays! We had a very successful year and many things to be thankful for. Currently, I am thankful for those who volunteered to serve on our Board of Directors.
Thanks to Bill Bell and Charles Pimble for stepping up to fill the long-standing vacancies on the Board. Thanks to Harold Thacker for agreeing to edit our newsletter Infogram. Thanks to all the serving Board members who agreed to stay on for an additional two years. Now all I want for Christmas is a Golf Tournament Director.
On January 14, 2023, Retired US Navy Captain Frank Michael, MOAAs Program Director for Council and Chapter Affairs will officially install our new Board of Directors. I ask everyone to please join us for the dinner and ceremony as a way of showing our appreciation and respect for our fellow members who have volunteered to lead our chapter forward.
I look forward to the new year and the challenges it may bring. I am very proud to be part of an organization whose members are so generous with their time and treasure. We are a group that truly exemplifies the MOAA motto “Never Stop Serving”.
I would be remiss if I did not thank our two past presidents Juan Chavez and Ira Watkins for their help and guidance.
Happy holidays and best wishes for a bright New Year. Stay safe and healthy!
