Back to the list

From the President's Desk: May 2019

Greetings Olympia MOAA Chapter Members, Recently, Doug White, Leigh Ruff, and I manned a table at the Panorama Activity Fair Day and had at least a dozen inquiries from interested folks. We signed up three new chapter members and four to National. I would like us to welcome our newest members: Morris Buchanan, LTC (Retired), Defrance Clarke, Lt Col (Retired), David Hayes, Lt JG (Fmr). 


Chuck Peterson and I will be attending the MOAA NW Regional Leadership Training in Portland, Oregon this month. I look forward to representing our great chapter and meeting some of the other chapter leadership in our region to share best practices. Additionally, our chapter will be presented the MOAA communications 5-Star award for our newsletter and web site. 


This month we will be presenting a JROTC leadership award and our first chapter scholarship award at Shelton High School. Chuck Peterson and I will attend but would like to invite you as well to help celebrate the accomplishments of these outstanding students. 


We need some folks to help for a couple of hours in our annual recruiting effort; many hands make light work…or phone calls in this case. I will provide a list of names and a call script and all you have to do is chat with potential chapter members. Please consider supporting this as it is one of our key strategy to continue the awesome growth of our dynamic chapter.Also, please be free to offer any suggestions on how we can improve. I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting. 


 COL (Ret) Howard LimChapter President
