December 10, 2016 Membership Meeting Minutes

 The December Social Meeting of the NHKWVA was held at the Sweeney American Legion Post in Manchester commencing at 1 pm. Commander Richard Moushegian and Secretary/Treasurer Conrad Perreault welcomed the 24 veterans and 11 guests.

The social commenced with the pledge of allegiance and a remembrance of our past comrades.

Those present enjoyed an excellent lunch of sandwiches, salads, coffee and a variety of desserts.  The conversations and comradeship were abundant and enjoyable.  Jeanne Perreault organized and directed a fun bag game. 

Dave Kenney, Chairman of the NH Veterans Advisory committee (SVAC), presented a film on the NH State Veterans Cemetery, its history, its expansion and the building of the new education center.  This was followed by a discussion period.

A short business meeting then followed:

It was noted that an unauthorized deduction was made from the Chapters bank account.  This has been reported to the bank and we are awaiting the outcome. The Treasurer, Conrad Perreault requested that he be given permission, if necessary, to close out the account and open a new one.  It was moved, seconded and passed that he has the authority to do so.

The next meeting will be the second Saturday in April, the 8th, time and place will be forthcoming.  The February meeting is cancelled because many of our members go to warmer climates in the winter and because of unforeseeable bad weather.

Thanks to Jeanne and Conrad Perreault for their and others efforts in preparing the event.

Meeting adjourned at 2:35 pm.
