President’s Message

Dear Compatriots,

As we head into summer the South Coast Chapter will not meet again as a group until September. The next newsletter will be issued around the first week of September with details of the September meeting. The OC Chapter has invited our chapter members to participate in their annual picnic on Saturday, August 13th at Mile Square Park. See additional details later on in the newsletter. I attended this picnic last year and plan to do so again this year.

On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress took a break from writing the Articles of Confederation and passed a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white,” and that “the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” Over 100 years later, in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson marked the anniversary of that decree by officially establishing June 14 as Flag Day. So, please proudly fly your flag on Tuesday, June 14th.

Wishing you all a safe, enjoyable and COVID free summer. My wife and I just tested positive for COVID even though we are both vaccinated and boosted. Symptoms are mild. So, stay safe remain diligent.

In patriotism,
R. Scott Whitman
