Our Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) chapter takes pride in serving our north Georgia community.
We know how important it is to communicate more effectively. That’s why we will use this site as an important way to help keep you informed.
Come help us serve and be part of our camaraderie! You will have fun and help others.
Our chapter is selling sponsorships for wreaths to be laid on veterans’ gravesites at the National Cemetery in Canton, GA on Saturday, December 15, 2018. We are affiliated with “Wreaths ACROSS America”, a national organization. We are one of 1,200 fundraising groups representing nearly 500 charities across the country raising funds for this program. For every $15 wreath sponsorship purchased, $5 will go to help GMC-MOAA’s support of our veteran programs. Also available this year are “The Military Tribute Pair Order Form” and “Patriot Pair Order Form.” These sponsorship forms provide an ability to donate a Veteran’s Wreath for a Canton Veteran’s gravesite, and to have a personal Veteran’s Wreath sent to an individual designated on the order form. For more information and/or a sponsorship form contact Larry Lobaugh at “LLobaugh305@outlook.com”.
Our chapter Christmas Party will be December 13, 2018 at Achasta Country Club, 639 Birch River Dr, Dahlonega, GA 30533 . An exciting silent auction begins at 1700 and the bar opens at 1800. Some items up for bid are: 7-day stay in a 3-bedroom cottage in Branson, Missouri (August); a 7-day stay in a 2-bedroom villa at “Presidential Villas at Plantation Resort” Surfside Beach, Horry, South Carolina (August); an African Hunting Safari for 2 in South Africa (valued at over $8,000); and many other wonderful items. A list of all items and estimated value was sent to all members in November. All money received will be used to support our chapter community programs. Come join us and have fun, socialize with other members, and make this the best Christmas ever! If you cannot attend you can still submit a Standing Bid for each item (LLobaugh305@outlook.com).
Join us at one of our meetings at lunch or dinner on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
