82ND AIRBORNE DIVISION ASSOCIATION - HAMPTON ROADS ALL SERVICES CHAPTER
Notes from the Chapter Chairman regarding the Corona Virus
Greetings fellow 82nd Airborne members, spouses and friends,
It's difficult to believe that it has been 10 months since we've gotten together to share in Airborne camaraderie and meals together due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The Executive Board and myself think it is in the best interest of all members, spouses and friends to continue to postpone having our monthly dinner meetings until we can evaluate the Covid situation in the coming months. What this means is, no annual Thanksgiving Dinner or annual Christmas Party with our usual special "drop in" from Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Mr. Claus informs me that he and Mrs. Claus are staying put at the North Pole and working on alternatives to get all the toys out to the good boys and girls.
November is also the month that we take nominations from the floor for the 2021 Slate of Officers. If anyone would like to step up and run for any office (Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer or Secretary), please reach out to myself or Vice Chairman, Sydney McKay. If no nominations are received by 20th November, 2020, the current Board has agreed to stay on for another year and the installation will take place in January 2021. (providing it is safe to do so).
I do want to take a moment to personally THANK the Executive Board for the outstanding job that they do and also a BIG THANKS to Kip Keziah for always jumping in to help with the newsletter and really anything that pops up. I also THANK the members, spouses and friends that attend the meetings and support our Hampton Roads All Service 82nd Airborne Chapter. Without YOU we wouldn't need an Executive Board.
By the time you receive this newsletter the Presidential election will be history. Whether RED or BLUE wins, our Nation must come together in PEACE, working together to make our country STRONG again.
I wish you ALL a Happy Veterans Day and THANK YOU for the scarifies you made for our Country.
Please continue to stay safe, keep your distance, mask up and wash your hands.
Looking forward to our Next Jump....
Airborne All the Way!
