Dear Chapter Members,
I hope that all of you enjoyed the Scholarship luncheon in May. The six young people who received a $2000 scholarship were exceptionally well qualified and have great potential. We thank all of you who made this possible: the many donors from our MOAA chapter, the school instructors, the interviewers, the students themselves and their parents.
Our next luncheon will be Wednesday, June 21 at the Renaissance. Please put on your calendar now. Adell Erozier, director of Turning Points, a one-stop facility for the homeless, many of whom are veterans. We thank Randy McCrae for his persistence in booking this excellent speaker for our last luncheon at the Renaissance until October.
Make sure you call Pat (746 8744 by Friday, June 16 to make your reservation
Join your fellow chapter members and many others at Manatee Memorial Park (behind Manatee Memorial Hospital) at 9:00 A.M. on Monday, May 29th, to honor and give tribute to the many veterans who paid the ultimate price in serving their country throughout our history.
Instead of our usual luncheon in September at the Renaissance, we will be joining several other MOAA chapters for a joint luncheon. The date will be Friday, September 16, at 11:30 A.M. at Michaels on East in Sarasota. We want the first MOAA chapter in Florida to be well represented. More information will be available in the September newsletter. . .
We plan to set up carpools so transportation will not be a problem. Have a great summer and safe travels, and as the song goes "See you in September."
