To All Michigan Chapter VHPA Members and Interested Parties,
The spring meeting of the Michigan Chapter will be on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at noon / 12:00 pm / both clock hands straight up, etc.
It will be held in the Back Room of the Log Jam Restaurant, 110 W. Jefferson, Grand Ledge, MI. The Log Jam has an extensive menu which includes adult beverages.
Besides lunch, this is a great opportunity to share war stories (embellished or otherwise) and perhaps meet someone you served with across the pond or at least shared the same airspace.
There will be a short business meeting with agenda items including discussion on events for our chapter participation this year. Locked in is the Operation LZ Michigan being held in Oscoda July 8-10. If anyone knows of other events that might fit our style, please share that information.
There will also be an election of officers. Nominations and draftees will be accepted up to and including at the meeting. We’ve survived with just a president and vice president up to now so looking for a secretary and treasurer to spread the load.
I anticipate we will also have a guest speaker or story-teller – more on that later.
Please bring your spouses, significant others, and anyone you think appropriate.
I’ll send out reminders and more details periodically. Just to emphasize – the meeting is on MAY 14, not March.
Member and President
