February Meeting Announcement

Greetings All,

For our Tuesday, February 24th meeting we are returning to the Red Lion in downtown Bellevue. Greg Brooks will be speaking on the George F. Walker Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament.

Also the February meeting is my final meeting as the NPS Chapter President and I will be handing the ‘gavel’ over to Ben. I would like to thank everyone for their tolerance over the last few years that I have been part of the Chapter leadership. I have certainly learned a lot about the operation of a volunteer organization and while it has been a worthwhile endeavor, I can honestly say, “It isn’t easy”. It’s a lot of work and I have gotten a lot of support. So to Brian Blevins, Travis Bradley, Josh Brothers, Ryan McFarlane, Dale Simpson, Erica Morris, Ben Petersen, Tim Hollenbeck, Raj Reddi, James Ray, Bill Glassey, Lindy MacManiman, Jim Coan, Martin Paquette, Vic Banks, Mike Root, and Jon Warren, thank you for help. That’s a lot of people and I probably missed some. But that shows why it’s important for all of our members to help out where they can, a couple people can’t do it all by themselves for it to be successful. We have to help each other if we want our organization to prosper and succeed. Congratulations to our incoming Chapter Officers. Thank you for volunteering your time to the organization.

Well, that’s enough from my soapbox. Please RSVP and attend our February Meeting.

Thanks,

KC Moore
NPS Chapter President – LSAW
