A recent letter to the chapter:


Guest Speaker at May General Meeting

Members at the May 17th General Membership meeting were treated to a wonderful surprise with a presentation on the space program as it was around the time we set foot on the moon. Our guest speaker was Tom State who served as an Air Force Engineer from 1955 to 1958, subsequently as a contractor with the ICBM program from 1959 to 1963 and then working with the space program in various roles from 1963 until 1999. While some of the stories we heard were familiar, all of those attending the meeting learned things never heard before in the news and everybody gained a new insight of our space program from listening to someone who lived it. Below is a quick shot of Captain Tom State, USAF, Retired (third from right) with some of the members present at the General Membership meeting.


And The Winner Is!

Thank you to the 125 members who participated in the fundraising raffle for the beautiful quilt donated by Reni Reed. With your participation we raised slightly over $2,000 that will be used for programs in Oregon and SW Washington that support past, present, and future veterans and their families. Congratulations William and Kari !!!!!




Pictured are LaRene Paul and Reni Reed as Reni draws the lucky ticket during the March General Membership meeting. Senior Advisor Charlie Paul watches in the wings hoping to leave the meeting with the quilt under his arm - sorry Charlie.
