It is with immense honor that I have served as your Commander for the past two years. We have had many achievements over the last several years – the “Forget-Me-Not” fund drives, the VillageFest and participation in the Veteran’s Day Parade – to name a few.We have helped Veterans with emergency needs, grants to get off the streets, fund raisers, and more. We have maintained a great deal of support and networking in the Valley to help our brothers and sisters.
It is with a great deal of fore thought and reflection that I announce that I will no longer be able to fulfill the role as Commander for the Chapter. I have decided not to run for any office in the coming election. My choice of self care is a long term solution to address my personal health issues without aggravating the conditions in my back and neck.

However, I will continue to be of service to our local Chapter 66 with my availability to provide mentorship and support for administrative discipline for reports and finances. Again, it has been a pleasure serving on the Board over the years.  Thank you for providing me this opportunity!  I would like to invite all interested members to run for the Commander’s position in order to provide support and growth of the Chapter for the future.
