Leavenworth Ks. On a steamy July 5th evening, ye old Sojourners had powered wigs and dry powder for their muskets.
As a final salute to America’s Independence Day celebration, Sojourners gathered at the Pullman in Leavenworth to fire cannons and toast the country’s birthday. Only seven Sojourners were present so the 12 year old scotch went several times around the table.
For business, we put together Annual Reports for National HQ. After several tongue-in-cheek responses, we realized that although our Freedom Fund is at 70% funded for a student scholarship to the Youth Leadership Conference, no students were nominated this year for the trip. We need to do a better job at telling our story so we have a student nominee for next year.
Bro. Richard Schroder is our chapter’s 2017 nominee for Done the Most for Americanism for the Sojourner year.
