Our Chapter's Position for 2019

We have big plans for the coming year.  Because we reached our target fundraising goal in 2018, we will be able to execute our ambitious program of support to past, present, and future members of the uniformed services of the United States.  What we need now is more people to help us enjoy giving that support.

Come  to our February meeting and volunteer to be a part of it!
