Korean War Veterans

From the Desk of the Chapter Commander

Our Chapter Commander would like to extend his thanks and appreciation for all the continued support that you all provided to our organization over the past year. Hopefully, the summer went well for you all as we continue to look for new adventures as we move on, following a year of challenges and change. There have been a few changes that should be noted, if they’re not already on your current calendars, starting with our initial meeting following a summer break. The meeting is scheduled for Oct. 25, and our new meeting location will be at the Black Bear Diner, a restaurant located in the shopping center between Queen Creek and Alma School Roads. Our meetings start at 11 a.m. and are scheduled from October through April of each year.

When available, a portion of our agenda is the participation of a guest speaker. If the identity of the speaker is known in advance or becomes available later than this publication, that information will be passed on to the active membership in a timely manner. In addition to our regularly scheduled meetings each Tuesday at 2 p.m., several members and guests get together for a social time to get to know each other better, and all are always welcome. There usually is a large turnout, and it is a great opportunity to meet up with friends who have somewhat similar backgrounds to each other.

Being a service organization, we are well aware that we all are vulnerable to the unexpected, and accidents do happen. One of the club’s primary goals is to be able to provide support in the best manner possible when needed to those in need. Our doors are always open, and help is only a phone call away. Our club maintains a significant amount of supplies that are often required for rehab after a fall or other unexpected accident. Feel free to call the Chapter Commander, Rich Volpe, regarding additional details, inventories, and other questions you may have regarding club membership, activities, or medical equipment availability. He can be reached at 480-802-2532, and he would be happy to talk to you.
