Presidents Report

June, July


It sure has been a wet summer so far, and I like most of you could use a break. I am pleased to announce that we got thru our 2015 Banquet with approximately 138 guests and a few bumps and bruises. I was sweating bullets with the change of venue and type of food. After the dinner I did ask many of our members and their families what they thought of the new changes, most told me that they were ready for a change and that the food was good. A few said that they were not crazy about the new food. At least they were honest. We did have a few minor issues, like running out of wine for the ladies. ( this is not a good idea ) No public address system, and the appetizers could have been more plentiful. With that being said it is still a good starting point for next year. We will try to make the needed improvements to make the next banquet better.

At our July meeting we had our new officers on hand, our new Vice President is Bill Balthaser. Bill and I went thru drill school together and I know bill will be a great asset to 4 unit. Daralee Foretch is the new secretary, she just had shoulder surgery and will take over as soon as she is able. And Dale Miller is our new trustee. Please thank them when you see them. I know I am very thankful to have some new members take positions on the executive board.

We also have to say good bye to Charlie Burkhart who has served as Vice President of 4 Unit since June 1, 2005. Ten years that’s quite a while to hold an office in any organization. Jerry Mason is also trying to slip out the door on me. Jerry has been our Treasurer since June 3, 2009. Both of these men have served us very well and now deserve a break, to sit down on the other side have a beer or two and relax. We are still looking for a member to transition into the treasurer’s position. It’s time for Jerry to be able to spend time with his father. Anyone interested in this position please contact Gary Church or Bill Balthaser.

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.


Gary A. Church.

4 Unit President.
