From the President's Desk---February 2019
Greetings Olympia MOAA Chapter Members,
I would like us to welcome our newest members: CAPT (Ret) Wayne Olsen, his wife Betsy, and CPT Daniel Frederick to our Olympia Chapter. Please take the time to welcome them at our next meeting.
We have an exciting opportunity this year to serve our community in a significant way. Our chapter is currently coordinating with the Lacey Veterans Hub to submit a proposal to the MOAA Foundation to receive as much as five thousand dollars to support our local community. The MOAA Foundation offers grants to MOAA chapters to provide services to local military and veteran families—either directly or through partnerships with other community organizations. I will keep you informed of the progress of this grant request and hopefully it will be awarded to our chapter.
Your officers and board continue to work hard in support of our chapter and all of its members. Please consider joining us at a board meeting, volunteer event, recruiting event, luncheon, or all of the above. We’d love to have you!
Remember, we are strong together and our voice grows commensurate with our membership. Please bring a friend or two to one of our events and help us grow our awesome chapter. Finally, I want to ask for some help in our future recruiting efforts. We will need help in contacting prospective members in the near future and if you would like to participate, let me or any of the officers know. I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
COL (Ret) Howard Lim, Chapter President
