We had a very well attended meeting last month. Benjamin Franklin played his Armonica and enlightened us with details of his illustrious career and numerous significant inventions. Further, we inducted six new members. The chapter membership continues to grow and we are at the highest level since my tenure started in January 2019. Thank you all for your support of this worthy organization.
We look forward to a change in the guard, so to speak, and in November the chapter will be electing new officers for the 2024-25 term including a new President and VP of Programs. If any of you feel the tug of volunteerism please come forward and let us know of your interest.
At the October meeting there will be an opportunity to nominate someone from the floor to fill a board position. The nominee, though, must accept the nomination to have his name entered onto the ballot. We will be using a different electronic ballot method this year and hope you all will find it easy to make your selections and submit your ballot.
We have another interesting program lined up for the October meeting. The guest speaker will be Ms. Christine McMahan who will speak on “Women in the American Revolution”. We hope to see you there.
