Welcome to the Golden Isles Chapter


April 5, 2021 Update
Our Scholarship teams are interviewing candidates for our 2021 Scholarship Program.  Our plan now is have our Scholarship Dinner on 2 May at the Brunswick Country club.  We will be offering 5 Scholarships this year. More information will be in our May Newsletter.

Mark your calendar and plan on attending the meeting .

Update for 2021: The new year is just about on us.  Our first meeting will be Sunday February 21st at noon.  Woody was able to book Jonathon Tenet as our speaker.  You may remember he was harbor pilot on the Golden Ray.  We hope a lot of you will attend.  Brunswick Country Club has had a lot of activity in the past few months and their cleanliness and social distancing policies have prevented any COVID cases.  You will enjoy great fellowship in a safe environment.  We look forward to seeing for lunch that day.

Scholarship Program: We are resuming our scholarship program and very excited about it we have done pretty well at fund raising, but could use a little more support.  We would love to have your support.  Jim  Bruce has set up a new payment app on our website at GIMOAA.org. You can donate thru that app as well as pay your dues. Check it out. Itís easy to use .

Need A Volunteer:  Our team needs someone to help out with the administrative details of our scholarship program.  It requires a minimal amount of time, and I believe you will find it a rewarding experience.  Call Dick James at 703-975-3632 and Iíll fill you in on some of the details.  We look forward to having you onboard.

GIMOAA Dues for 2021:  Jerry Rhyne will be emailing 2021 dues notice in early December.  The rate will be the same as last year, $40. You can pay via mailing  a check to our PO Box or using a credit card using our new payment method on our website.

Veteran Memorial Park On November 4th, The Glynn County Commissioners conducted an Opening and  Dedication Ceremony for our new Veteran Memorial Park in downtown Brunswick.  Chairman Mike Browning provided information about how they developed the park. Live music was provided by the Glynn Academy Wind Symphony.  Both JROTC programs supported the dedication, Congressman Buddy Carter provided the Keynote address. A timely message for all veterans.

Be save and Happy Holidays,
