October President’s Update

Our October meeting will be an evening affair which gives the opportunity for those who work that cannot normally attend our monthly lunch meeting to come out and enjoy a pleasant dinner with alumni.  The cost is $25 per person.  We will celebrate the USNA and US Navy birthdays.  There is no formal program, just a nice social gathering.  Please come and bring spouses, significant others.

The USNA Foundation is kicking off a major promotional and fundraising campaign later this year.  I will be attending a kickoff in November so will be able to give you more details in December.

Frank Swientek tells me we have lots of Challenge Coins available.  If you do not have one, they are available at each meeting.  A real bargain at $10 or 3 for $25.  For Parents Club members, they are perfect Graduation gifts and introduction to the alumni association.

The Chapter is still in need of a secretary, we are now entering our second year without one.  It would be nice if someone would step up.  Additionally, we have several council members terms expiring next Spring.  Being on council is a nice way to stay involved in the Alumni Association and contribute to the success of the great institution we all attended.

Football season is in full swing, and we have several games that we are setting up to watch as a group.  Notre Dame will be Oct 27 and we will watch with the ND alumni at Paddies and finally Army Navy will be 12/8 once again at Big Als.
