Greetings Compatriots,

As Im writing this message for the May chapter newsletter, Volunteer Week, April 15 to 21 has concluded. The sar.org website had an interesting video titled, SAR Volunteer Appreciation Video 2018. I want to quote the initial message from this video. The Objects of this Society are declared to be patriotic, historical, and educational; to unite and promote fellowship among the descendants of those who sacrificed to achieve independence of the American people, to inspire them and the community-at-large with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers; to foster true patriotism; to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom. With that statement in mind, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the volunteers in our chapter for the work they do to promote our chapter and the SAR society in the community. Thank you to Paul and Renee Weddell for the many years of treasurer responsibilities and hosting all those picnics and barbeques. Thank you to Kurt and Linda Camp for helping the Weddells with the above fellowship activities. Thank you Curtis Porter for your years of leadership as chapter president and with the scouting programs. Thank you Jerry Hereford for the many years of service as newsletter editor and chapter secretary. Thank you Paul Sapp for the fine work youre doing as the current newsletter editor. Thank you Scott Whitman for your years of work on our chapter website. Thank you Robbie Jones for the many years of dedicated attendance as our chapter chaplain and leading us in prayer at dinner meetings and other social functions. Thank you Maynard Rains for dedicated chapter service with the awarding of medals to area high school and college ROTC students. Thank you to Steven Steinberg for stepping up to become 2nd vice-president and be responsible for setting up speakers for our chapter dinner meetings. Thank you to the chapter color guard; Curtis Porter, Jerry Hereford, Mel Butler for making the local communities aware of the Sons of the American Revolution. Our chapter has some openings for more volunteers. We need someone to lead our chapter as president following the tragic loss of our leader, Richard Bent. We also need someone to take over as chapter treasurer. If you think you can invest a couple of hours a month, please contact me.

In Compatriotism,
Leon Smith, Vice-President
