March Speaker:

     LtCol (Ret) Erv Hodges will bring us up-to-date on the
Douglas County Memorial of Honor Foundation
(see article on Page 8 for contributions)

                                                                       President's Corner

by Stanley Sneegas  

     As our nation prepares for a new conflict, let us not forget those who have gone before us. We should be especially grateful to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Consequently, we have asked Erv Hodges to give us an update on the Douglas County Memorial for our March meeting. I would invite all members to come and hear what Erv has to say.
     Your Board of Directors has also decided to add two additional meetings to our bimonthly schedule (April and October). We will have a special presentation on the Dole Center Dedication at our April Meeting. Please come and hear about the latest plans for this national event that will take place here in Lawrence. As you may have seen in recent news articles, a principle element of the ceremonies will be to honor the World War II veterans. I would invite all of our members to come to the March and April meetings to hear how we can participate in honoring our local heroes. See you there!
