What do James Marshall, Jed Bartlet, Merkin Muffley, David Palmer, Frank Underwood, and Bill Mitchell have in common? If you said they were all Presidents of our chapter, you’d be close. They were all fictional movie US Presidents. In an era of 100% partisan politics and faux Americans in high elected positions, it’s nice to have a real American president. Brother Vic kicked off a Presidential Parade highlighting all our chapter past presidents and rendered them honors. Of course, getting 27 past anythings to line up in the right order was as entertaining as a Shrine Circus. Then we honored a few worthy US Presidents past and certainly present.
We also discussed the Freedom’s Foundation Valley Forge scholarship and decided to fund one youth for the 2020 program 14-19 July. Interested youth can find all the details and application at: National Sojourner Inc. Send the completed form to our Chapter. We will be sponsoring one very worthy candidate and will be focusing on Leavenworth High School JROTC students as our candidate pool. Other students are welcome to apply. We will cover the program fees and air fare. The program fees include tuition, meals and housing.
