Our next meeting is November 4, 2017 at Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue, 8445 SW Elligsen Rd, Wilsonville, 11am Potluck (Board meeting at 10 am). We have invited Mike Mihalik, Dad of a 2014 Grad, to talk about some of the financial and logistical decisions our cadets have to make after West Point, like “Should I get the Cow Loan and how much?” and “Should I ship my car to Germany or buy one there?”
Branch Night will also be soon, so Mike will be able to offer a few words about that, too.
At our January meeting (exact date to be determined), we have invited Rick Goodell, USMA Class of 1968. Rick is the 50-year Affiliate for the Class of 2018, and Rick has many good stories to share. I’ll provide Rick’s bio as we get closer to January.
The November meeting is also when we do elections to the board for the following year. We need to fill the board positions for Vice President and Secretary. Steve Roth has nominated himself as Secretary. Thanks, Steve! And, we are still looking to fill the Vice President slot as Karen Irving will move in as president as John and I step down. This is a fairly minimal commitment that makes a big difference to our West Point experience. Thanks for considering this.
John and I will miss hearing your stories at this meeting as we will be in Colorado Springs watching Women’s Army Rugby beat Air Force. Go Army!!
