Comrades and Sisters,
As much as I was looking forward to the change and novelty of having our next State Convention at the Indian Head Resort in Lincoln this coming year – that is not going to happen. Due to logistics of our meeting room needs – but mostly because of some high, unforeseen charges for those rooms, Indian Head has been taken off the table.
Therefore, as disappointed as I am, we will again be at the Radisson inNashuaone final year.
But that’s not a bad thing! This year went very smoothly and everything was fine. The hotel management and staff went out of their way to see that we had everything we needed and wanted. The food was great – the accommodations were great and I’ve heard no complaints. We are even locked into a like price range for the coming year.
My only complaint – and I’ll be saying it often throughout the year – was the lack of participation from our Members! Sadly, there were far too many Posts not represented at all. This is YOUR Convention …. A time for camaraderie and getting together of friends to celebrate a year of accomplishments and hard work……And a time to look ahead and plan a new year. Lets all make an effort to attend this next Convention …All Conventions …. And all Department events.
I look forward to seeing everyone at our Annual State Picnic / C of A / O.T.I. in Winchester August 4th & 5th.
Till then – keep up the good work and all you do for our Veterans.
Yours in Comradeship, Service & Patriotism
