Here’s what’s happening in the VA Peninsula Alumni Chapter:
The Alumni Association requires submission of our active membership list by January 31st, therefore request a note and check if you intend to be a member this year.  Currently about half of us have paid our 2017 dues of $20.  Members get a discount on events and our free PCAW luncheon will be a members only event this year.
Send your notes & checks to me:
USNAAA VA Peninsula Chapter

Our Valentine Luncheon is at LaTienda on Sunday Feb 19th.
Don Harris, the owner will speak to us about his Naval career and how he transitioned to being a Spanish food store & restaurant owner.
The cost per person will run us about $32, however, members will pay $25 for themselves and their guest.
Request RSVPs by Feb 15th so I can turn in a good head count.
Request your ideas for events, speakers, charities, and Chapter business in general.
