PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - November/December 2020

            Good afternoon team! It is hard to believe that the summer is gone and that we already had our first snowfall of the year, in October! Besides the weather, it does not look like COVID is releasing its grip on us as fast as we would like. From listening to the net it seems like everyone is weathering the storm in good spirits and morale if not great is at least holding steady and that is great news! As always if you are having problems, shoot the red star cluster and we will come running!

This edition of the Border Bulletin is coming out right before Thanksgiving and just in time for giving day. I am not going to hammer giving day as there are plenty of articles in this edition on the importance of giving day and how we maintain and improve the Foundation. Dig as deep as you can, from my foxhole I would rather have many members give a bit than a few give a lot. But that’s just me!

I do not know about you but I am seriously looking forward to 2021, I want to put 2020 as far in the rearview mirror as I can. With that in mind I figured I would recap the MOAA Legislative Priorities so we can discuss at future meetings
