Welcome to the Golden Isles Chapter
Dear Members:We are
starting a new year, and it is questionable whether or not it will
be better that 2021 with the Omicron Variant on the prowl. At a
recent Board Meeting, we decided not to schedule any meetings this
year except for the scholarship awards luncheon because of limited
response to last years meetings. We are still open to scheduling
meetings if we believe that we can expect a reasonable attendance.
Also at the board
meeting, we agreed to call all our membership and talk to you
directly. We are especially interested in seeing how you are and if
your would be amenable to attending meetings if we scheduled them.
We’d like to hear your thoughts on how your involvement with the
chapter could be more interesting. We look forward to each of you
talking to one of our board members.
We have a new
member, Major Clint Houchins, responsible for the Marine Corps
Junior ROTC program at Glynn Academy. We welcome him and his family
to the Golden Isles and hope you all get a chance to meet them
Program is proceeding as normal. We will award four scholarships of
$2000 each. Our scholarship luncheon will take place in May. We want
to thank all of you for your loyalty to MOAA.

Dear Golden lsles MOAA Member,
Thank you for your valued membership in the Golden Isles Chapter of
MOAA (GIMOAA). Your support allows us to continue our mission of
awarding scholarships to deserving local high school students and to
other worthwhile causes.
GIMOAA has expanded our community outreach for supporting our
Scholarship Program. We want you to be part of this new outreach and
help us contact our local businesses for their support
Our Chapter dues for the year 2022 are $25.00 per family and are
the primary source of operating revenue. The local GIMOAA dues
ARE NOT included in your National MOAA dues. Your local dues will
support membership in the local Chamber of Commerce: maintenance of
our Website, Newsletters, and postage: and defray administrative
operating costs for our Scholarship Program. Our ﬁxed yearly
operating budget is $650.00. This will keep us aﬂoat.
Over the last several years our membership has declined, but our
operating cost have remained the same. This was the reason for the
small increase in our 2018 dues. We need your help with increasing
our membership. if you know a lapsed member or someone eligible for
membership, please encourage them to attend a meeting and make
application with the chapter. If required, we can mail/email an
application to you. Or refer them to our website: www.GlMOAA.ORG,
look for link in 2nd para.
Please send your check, any change of address status and email to
the club address above. Or you can pay online at GlMOAA.org, Thank you
for your prompt response. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Col. Jerry Rhyne - Treasurer
