***APRIL MEETING WILL BE HELD AT ASCENSION LUTHERAN CHURCH 901 COUNTY ROAD V, the corner of "V" and Pioneer Road. Time and date are the same. If you have questions call me, not the church. State Convention
Wisconsin's Annual State Convention will be held on June 10, 11 and 12. If you are interested in being a delegate representing our chapter, you are required to either call me or be at the April meeting. There is paperwork, you will need. If you would like to attend, but not cast a vote, contact me for hotel information. It will be a the Radison Hotel in Green Bay.
We have a new email address that will be easy to remember firstname.lastname@example.org. I created this, so I can send members their newsletter via email.
There is currently a waiting list of 400 veterans, so sign up soon.
May 21-23 there is going to be a long overdue homecoming for Vietnam War Veterans. There is information at www.lzlambeau.org or contact the CVSO. At this time our chapter is having trouble acquiring the free tickets. However you can call ticket master or go online to order tickets for yourself. They are the same price.
Final nominations and elections will be held at the April meeting. If you are interested in being elected as an officer, you must be at the meeting.
Installation, dinner will be on May 4, 2009, at 6:00pm. The chapter will pay for those members who have been active in the chapter or unit over the past year. This involves helping with Forget-Me-Nots, Delivering Flowers to Veterans, attending meetings, attending other DAV events as a representative of our chapter or unit.
Memorial Day Parade
Yes it is hard to believe that summer plans are being made. I would like to have members of our chapter marching in the Memorial Day Parade in May. We need a minimum of 4 committed people to support a color guard. This needs to be set by the April meeting as there will not be one in May.
Free Spirit Riders
Free Spirit Riders are very interested in providing riding therapy to disabled veterans. If they do not get enough interested people. then the program will never get started and future veterans will not be able to benefit. the plan is to have eight sessions during the summer on Fridays. During the session, participants will learn how to feed, groom and ride their horse. If you are interested, please call me immediately, so I can get paperwork to you. Here is the link to Free Spirit Riders.
It's coming up in July and August. A great opportunity to support our chapter. Watch for more information in future newsletters.
If you are interested in getting the newsletter by Email, please email me at the chapter's email address email@example.com
