President's Message


Dear Friends,

As we head into our summer break, I am very grateful for having had the privilege of serving as your Chapter president for the past several years. It has been a great pleasure to work with the other board members on our various activities. Many will be continuing their board service; they have my deepest thanks, as do those who are stepping down after giving so much of themselves to our efforts. Franklin White, Jr. is returning as our next President, and I know I am leaving the Chapter in very capable hands.
