As efforts to prevent the chapter from folding on Aug 4th 202, Dee Daniels steps up as chapter President and Rich Malfitano is appoiinted as the COB. We continue moving forward and regroup to continue our mission and regain creditability throughout the community.

POW-MIA Honor Chair dedication: We took on the challaange to place POW-MIA Honor chairss through the Florida counties. Presently we are in close coordination with the State officials and the Historical society for final approvaal of the dedication of a POWMIA Honor Chair at the State Capitol Veterans Memorial Park. All seems to be on track and donations are beginning to come in to support this mission. We are hoping to dedicate the Chair at the 2021 Veterans Day ceremony at the capitol. Stay focused, continue to soliciate support and donations for this project. Support all upcoming events posted. At all times promote RT FL8 and the cause for which we stand.

Thanks for all you do to support our chapter., RIch (COB)
