Happy Friday everyone,
First, I would like you to welcome our two newest members;
SGT Brennen LaPere and Shawn Harshaw!
Its been a busy, but amazing Summer so far! We have made a lot of progress in the chapter along with the community and it shows. I’m very proud of all the hard work you all have put into the organization and it feels wonderful to receive praise that I can pass along to all of you. The BBQ Throwdown is a great example. I’ve received a lot of positive feedback regarding the event and our execution along with staffing the water and soda tent as well as helping with the Chamber ticket booth. I saw a lot of service last weekend. Great job and thank you!
Looking forward, its time to concentrate on our upcoming projects. We have a Westland Meet the Candidates event coming up in partnership with the league of women voters, along with a corporate poker room, a harvest project in the works, and much more. Then there’s the 5K. Start registering, and getting your friends to register. This is going to be a great event and things are starting to fall into place. We really need folks to start booking now so we can get a good idea of how many people and volunteers we will need to run the event. Remember, it’s a 5K Run or Walk.
Elections are also coming up. Be prepared to cast your nominations at the SEP GMM .
