PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - January / February 2022

           Happy new year team! Thank God 2021 is in our rearview mirror and I hope that this letter finds everybody in great health and spirits! 2021 was much better then 2020 and if the trend continues, here is to 2022 finally putting this COVID stuff behind us! There were great accomplishments in 2021 for our MOAA Chapter. Specifically, getting our scholarship under the El Paso Community Foundation so that we have an organization that can keep our scholarship running in perpetuity. There was a ton of work behind that endeavor and I would like to thank COL (R)John Robbins, COL (R) Dave Powell, along with the rest of the BOD. There is not enough space to describe all their efforts on this front but here is a taste. The work included fundraising, finding a home for our Scholarship, coordinating with the Community Foundation, and making an idea a reality. Truly a superb effort by all involved. Great work!

Unfortunately for us COL(R) John Robbins is stepping down as our Foundation BOD Deputy President after some superb Yeomans work! On behalf of the entire Chapter, thanks for the awesome work and a job well done! There will always be a place for you and we will keep a chair open at the lunches! See you on the high ground!
