ELECTION  OF NEW PRESIDENT: AGC DAVE CARROLL. HOME LOCATED IN SE GA

E-MAIL:  retiredweatherman@gmail.com

Phone: 912-439-3645

Term Expires:  12/31/2023.

 

22 attended with several no shows and they missed a great meal and party.  Most of the meeting was linked to the election.  Other officer will remain in office for at least the year 2020.  We would like to thank LT TODD MCDONALD and his bride Cheryl for the great parties that have provided to the NWSA SE CHAPTER over the years and I am  sure that I heard him say; He will be there for us for the 2020 Christmas Party.

 

Thanks goes out to some of my family member for their assistance in getting Charline and I to the party and to assist in the photo of the event. Additional photos will follow. Group photo is attached.

We remain strong in our group and did  note that the Chapters in other area are closing down.  Part of that is that there is no new member or very few that are entering the Weather field and the ones that are, they just seem to lack the interest

 

I will continue searching for member and non-member that have passed on  for their final cruise. Did note that the Reunion will be held in the Spring  time at Savannah GA. Details can be picked up on the NWSA web site or the Face Book.

 

If you have any questions, you can contact me for I am still trying to stay in the loop.

NWSA SE Chapter held their annual Christmas Party at the home of LT Todd McDonald on December 6th. There was 23 members present. Our host set up a feast that beats none along with our members bring their favorites dish.

Officers attending: LT Todd & Cheryl McDonald (President) and daughter Mya, AGC Steve & Cherry Turco (1st VP), AGC Bob & Charline Johnson (2nd VP) and daughter Teresa McGowens. List of members attending as shown in the photo: AGC Dave & Renee Carroll (1st time member, just recently moved from the hurricane damaged area of Mexico Beach and resettled in the Kings Bay, GA area), AGCM Marty & Bea Bonk, LT Fred & Lina Bergman, LCDR Eric & Loreta Gedult Von Jungerfeld, Salvatore & Susan Magaddino, AG2 Gerald & Sandy Burk, Chuck Bergman, AGC John & Carol Raley (1st time visiting; they traveled almost 300 miles from Augusta GA area and they hold the longest distance traveled).

We conducted our winter meeting by starting with dinner at 1830 hours and following the passing out gifts and ending the party at 2115 hours. We noted that the new members present for the first time was Chief Carroll and Chief Raley. Chief Raley gave a briefing on his flight from the storm and moving into the Kings Bay area. He provided some details of the hardships for the people that were displaced by the storm, especially after losing everything you had to the storms. Other new member is Chief Dave & Renee Carroll. We welcome Master Chief Bonk back. They traveled with Chief Carroll from South Georgia.

We were reminding everyone about the need for members to write up their history. And we provided information on the problems we were having with out auto-mailing on AOL and that we think it is about corrected at this time. Provided information on the spending from the Petty Cash funds showing $40 for the expense for the 1/2 page AD for the past reunion and that the 50/50 drawing results that keep the Petty Cash in balance. It provides for expense for the AD and our door prizes. We remain a group that collects no dues and plan on keeping it that way. We provided good news in that we no longer have to file the 990EZ, annual tax return. We now have the option of filing a brief report on the 990N form that will be sent out to us in the summer time via e-mail. 

With no additional business, we took a group photo that will be posted in the Aerograph and on Facebook. Each member will receive a copy via e-mail. Everyone had a great meal and time and it was fun talking with everyone about old times. Closed the meeting and dinner at 2115.
