The Vietnam Veterans of America National Chapter of the Year - 1999-2007
President’s Message -
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
Here we are in the middle of summer and the temperatures are sure showing it! We had our “Beach Blanket Bingo” party a little over a week ago and we had a lot of fun! I would like to thank the Friends for their hard work to make such a nice time for us. They provided very colorful decorations, a pool and beach balls, and a bonfire where some partook of roasting marshmallows. Wish we could have seen more people come out for it. It is nice to get together, and sit and visit. We do so much great work during the year. This is a chance to relax and socialize. The only bad thing is we lost Tim Clarke’s Mom earlier that week. So sorry Tim.
We have a couple of Leadership conferences coming up. Dave Draper will be attening the August conference in Kansas, and Ken Rogge and Tim Driscoll have attended the State Council weekend, recently. Gentlemen, thank you very much for attending these on behalf of the Chapter. We look forward to everything you have to share from these experiences.
By the time you have read this, the 4th of July will be upon us. I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable 4th, enjoy your family and friends, and stay cool.
Phil (Flip) Hecker
