I am proud to be in the position of President again with the opportunity to build on what has been achieved in recent years. I am extremely grateful to the Officers and the rest of the EC members who have agreed to continue the tremendous work and dedication that they have shown in the past years. It is really the whole team of Officers, the rest of the EC and input from all Members that make the task feel worthwhile. Camaraderie is what makes the time and effort feel an honor.
Unless you have served in any of the positions of the Club, you will have no idea of the efforts involved nor the satisfaction of being part of what makes our Club an amazing organization. Barry Stripp, Esq. just joined the EC, and Dermot McGovern, Esq. has volunteered an extra commitment to work with the Committee. We field a liaison team with the ATCC to handle reservations, seating arrangements, and many other details. CAPT Rob Meyer and Tom Roedl, Esq. have kindly volunteered to assist with this role to eventually relieve Bob Edmonds, Esq., MBE. He has shouldered this task for years! Any further assistance with other tasks is welcome.
Finding new members is particularly vital to our continued success. Each Member has the potential to sponsor new Members into our unique Club. We have the bragging rights of being an 83 year-old international Club which maintains the best traditions of our militaries and forefathers. Glory in the past contributions of others stands in sharp contrast to the disintegrating society that sadly surrounds us. We have a proud tradition to maintain as a light in an ever-darkening world.
Please help us make the year of 2018 another notable one filled with interesting presentations, camaraderie and shared friendship. Please mark your calendars with the Dining In dates and invite potential Members and other guests accordingly.
