State President’s


First Quarter

Classic Legacy


Four times during the year, we will recognize chapters chosen by the State Board for doing a GREAT job with projects, fundraising, membership drives, inputting information into CHARITY and CARES, and exemplifying what it means to be “A Citizen Wherever We Serve.” Nominations come from local management, state board members, and information submitted for the monthly Energizer. Chosen by the State Board for the first quarter and receiving $500 each are:

Josh Stallings

It’s hard to believe that nearly three months have passed this year. Our chapters have accomplished so much in such a short period of time. The State Board recently recognized four chapters with Classic Legacy Awards. These four chapters have done a tremendous job supporting their communities in the first quarter. Remember that one source for nominations is material sent in for “The Energizer”. I am excited to see what the next three months holds.

In addition to highlighting the great work you’ve done over the past month, we wanted to spotlight all of our chapter officers this month. At the end of this issue is a listing of all of our chapter officers around the state. A great movie called The Sting won the Oscar for best picture in 1973. In the film, Robert Redford and Paul Newman play a couple of con men who pull one over on a mobster. While Redford and Newman are the faces of the operation, there is a team of dozens of people working with them to make sure their sting is carried out to perfection. While in many locations there may be one person who is the face of the chapter, it takes a team of people working together to keep a chapter running smoothly.

Whether you realize it or not, there are people in your chapter who are doing things like entering member information, keeping records in CHARITY, sending birthday cards, or organizing projects. As featured this month, there are also people who prepare hot meals, plant trees, and flaunt their “beauty” to fund cancer research. Whatever your role is, our organization and our communities are better because of the work you are doing.
