The secretary reported on plans to present the ROTC medals to the outstanding high school cadets at the April meeting. With regard to our hosting the summer state Board of Management meeting, the board of governors developed a list of questions that we emailed to the state contact. We are awaiting the answers before moving forward.

President Tetrick read a news release sent via the state president, compatriot Tinny. The state society had presented a flag certificate to a Tampa couple. A short discussion followed concerning which of our own members flies the flag. The president also led a brief discussion on the Liberty Tree project.

President Tetrick reconvened the meeting and announced that our speaker had cancelled due to the death of a friend. Instead the chapter viewed a video entitled, “Tampa Times” which related the history of Tampa from its founding until the early 1900’s.


The 50/50 was won by June Bolen who donated all the proceeds to the treasury. The chapter thus gained $8.00.
