 Fellow members,

I have had great response from 'volunteers' to promote our Military Veterans Chapter at Area Rallies.. I need some more volunteers for additional tasks at Perry! How many of you plan to attend? There is need for 'volunteers' to operate the Tram Detail. For additional info and to 'Volunteer,' please respond to me, John Lee, MVC FMCA President, by e-mail skp45322@hotmail.com; or phone 256-366-5974 (H), or 256-366-6630 (C). Let's make the Family Reunion at Perry the best ever by being involved!

Of course, we will have a Chapter Fair at Perry, a Chapter meeting (on the agenda, I need members for the Nominating Committee to select Chapter officers to be elected summer of 2015), someone to chair a "social," etc.

MVC / Elk Pre-rally at Columbus, GA, March 6-10, come join the fun! See our 'blog' (www.mvcfmca.blogspot.com ) for details!

The Middle East Memorial Wall! How many of you have seen or heard about this Memorial?  
 God Bless America! Hats off to the motorcyclists who have a hand in the Middle East Memorial Wall!

An after thought....when "Bcc" e-mail addresses, I note a lot of 'dues paid through 2013.' Don't let your membership lapse. Send your dues (multiple years are great) to the Chapter Secretary, Carol Lee, 111 Twin Oak Drive, Florence, AL 35633.

We will have my "world famous" pulled pork on the evening of arrival (bring your favorite dish) Thursday, March 6th; Ranger Demonstration at Ft. Benning on Friday, March 7th; breakfast of SOS at the VFW on Saturday morning, spend the day at the Infantry Museum, then steak dinner at the VFW, Saturday March 8th; the National Civil War Cemetery at Andersonville, GA; and a Southern catfish dinner at Ezell's on Monday, the 10th. Other places of interest are the Civil War Naval Museum, the Coca Cola Space Science Center, etc. For the gambler in us, there is possible horse racing at the RV Park!
If this 'global warming' continues here in the South, we may see some of you sooner than March as my wife (your Chapter Secretary) has reminded me of the motorhome sitting in the driveway!
Safe travels,
John Lee,
President Military Veterans Chapter FMCA
