Friends and Family,
I hope this message finds each of you well. It is truly a blessing to live in this great nation with its abundance and opportunity. The Chapter has been extremely fortunate financially and in membership growth this past year. In keeping with one of our core missions of taking care of one another, I ask that if you know of someone within the "Legion Family" that might need of some assistance that you contact me.
I am also pleased to announce that the 57th Annual Reunion will be held 19-22 September 2018. Event planning is in its infancy but the Birthday Dinner has been scheduled and will be held on 20 September at the Silo Event Center. The reunion hotel will be the Country Inn and Suites located at 3075 Wilma Rudolph BLVD, Clarksville TN. Room rates are $89 plus tax. Reservations must be made by calling the hotel (931-645-1400) or by emailing . You cannot book these rooms in this group via the toll-free number, or the internet. Hope to see you then.
Chapter 38 Members,
Folks for those of you who have not been at our monthly meetings; I just want to take a quick moment to paint a broad brush of how the Chapter is progressing financially since my last letter of February 2017.
Bottom line we are doing quite will; to say we've been blessed by efforts large and small is an understatement.
Chapter 38 is proud to announce the winners of the 2017 Robin Moore Scholarship Program. They were selected from a large group of capable entries and the competition was very close. Daniel Dela Cruz, who will attend Washington University in St. Louis to study physical therapy, was the front-runner among the entries. Next came Jonathan Lochner, who will attend the University of Tennessee and major in chemical engineering. The remaining scholarships were awarded to Daniel Melin, Meredith Pace, Fredrick Prins, Chloe Sims, and Sophia Zecher.
Chapter 38 Members,
As you know we have lost five (5) of our young Warriors in the last four months due to combat, and accident, and cancer-all taken from their familes and their Brother's in Arms well before their times.
Throughout this time, Chapter 38 supported their families during their time of grief and the "Legion" as they prepared for each '"Warriors's Memorial" - as both our charter and honor dictates.
