Happy Holidays

Circumnavigator Gunther Winkler, Naples Chapter, captured the beautiful fall foliage near his home in Winchester, Mass. Pictured is Middlesex Fells, a conservation area only seven miles from Boston.

November kicks off the holiday season and we wish all our members, families and friends a joyous season, even though 2020 has been far from normal. Please remember how much there is to be thankful for.

Annual Meeting Goes Virtual

All official business was transacted. Will Mason (Pacific Northwest Chapter) and Rick Jennewine, (Naples Chapter) were welcomed as new members of the Board of Governors.

The meeting was kicked off by Executive Director Tracy Sancilio with our historic whale tooth gavel.
