"Hey Chief,
Everything seems to be going well here, but we sure miss your smiley face at the Board Meetings and the Dinner Meetings. They haven't been the same since you left us......
The Chapter is growing; we have picked up nine new members this year with the possibility of adding perhaps that many more next year; I'll keep you posted.
May you always have fair seas with the wind always at your back.
EIAR!

Bob Mason"
