Chapter Presidents Letter February 2019
PLEASE CHECK THE WEB SITE FOR UP TO DATE ANNOUNCEMENTS
If we get and overwhelming amount of snow forcing the Chapter Park closure immediately it will be announced on the web site, facebook page and a broadcast email to the membership.
Elections are coming up in May. Ed MacBride is the Committee chair. If you wish to nominate someone or yourself contact Ed. We need volunteers this is the best way to help out the chapter and volunteer.
The Chapter will be expanding the use of Empty Chamber Indicators (ECI) also known as “Chamber Flags’ or ‘Open Bore Indicators” we will be buying them to be passed out to new members and others
We have had a few leadership changes – The First VP is stepping down and Nick will be replaced by Jason Julian. The Secretary position will be filled by Paul Dwyer for Guy Marangoni. Two Directors have stepped aside Eric Brown was filling one position as interim by Mark Romeo and Mark Hardy will step aside next month and that position will be filled by Stephen Rolando.
Our chapter has been sponsoring as Boy Scout Troop, Pack and Girl Scout Troop. Recent changes in adult BSA leadership requirements, by Boy Scout National HQ, has created a situation that we do not have the additional adult leaders to keep our medium sized troop going. The plan is to help our eagle scouts candidates complete their effort and help the other Scout transition to larger troops over the next year. We will continue to support our other troops and Troops and youth groups from other sponsoring organizations.
2019 Membership renewals are now available on line. The cards will be mailed shortly but online renewal saves our chapter about $400 per year printing and mailing.
