 Like many other organizations, the Chapter has  been severely impacted by the virus. All events and fund raising activities have been suspended or canceled. The venues where we  held meetings are no longer available. The first Wednesday of the month chapter meetings are temporarily being held at the pavilion in Fenton Park.

Even in these trying times, the dedicated members of the Chapter's Honor Guard continued to provide their service to our departed veterans and their families. We salute you!
