President’s Message August 2022


 We had a good time at the Clinton Fall Festival.  People really seem to love us there.  Not only veterans of all ages but family members and the general public stopped by to tell us of their connection to the military.  Even the Romanian monastery kept sending us food.  It was a far cry from what we experienced fifty years ago.



     A surprising number of our visitors were doing their Christmas shopping.  They would pick up a cap or a pin or a shirt for someone on their list.  We made money for our chapter to benefit veterans and had fun doing it.  I was worried at first because the sign-up sheets to help at the sale didn’t fill up the way they should have but our chapter members showed up in force and we had plenty of help.  If I missed saying “Thank you” in person to anyone I apologize.  Let me say now how grateful I am for your efforts.  I am very proud of you all.

     We have already sent our check in for next year’s festival so plan on showing your support by stopping by our tent to say “Hello”.  Mark your calendar for next year, September 23, 24, and 25 2023.  It is where the cool kids will be hanging out.


I’ll see you at our next meeting.  In the meantime,

Stay safe and Stay proud.

Stan Harrison, President
