Newsletter – April 2018

Commander – Al Norton
The Nominations for Officers was closed as of the March General Meeting. The election will be at the April Meeting.

The Executive Committee has recommended changes to our By-Laws. They were reviewed at the March meeting. Notice of these changes is being given in the April & May newsletters. An election will be held at the Junes General Membership meeting. The changes are 1. To drop term limits on elected officers. 2. Eliminate the article that says a paid employee cannot be an elected officer. We feel these changes are needed due to small amount of people wanting to become officers.

Bob Acre has been selected as Volunteer of the Quarter for the amount of work he does on electrical issues and smoke eaters just to name a few. Thank you Bob!

Don’t forget to pray for our Troops, Veterans and all who serve our Great Nation. God Bless everyone.
