Donations at Work
The Chapter held its annual Christmas Party at the Genesis Banquet Center on February 11th.  That's right, February! The event was originally schedule for December 15th but was cancelled due to an ice storm. We had a great turnout.  The venue and the food were outstanding.  This year we were entertained by the vocal group, "Once Upon an Occasion."  The two ladies sang songs from the Vietnam era, including the favorite, "We Gotta Get Out of This Place."

Thanks to all who made the event memorable.

Below is a short video of the vocal group
