Thanks to everyone who came to support this chapter at our annual bowling fundraiser! This year was a huge success with the chapter making a record amount to help provide our veterans an unforgettable day out on the water in July. Check back for pictures of the fundraiser.
The Lake St. Clair chapter is our first and now hosted more than double the number of people than our inaugural event in 2009. This chapter hosts its events on Harsen's Island in July. This years event is on July 14th, if you are planning on attending we ask boat captains to arrive by 9am and veterans to arrive by 10am. You must RSVP for this event as space is limited. The date to RSVP by July 9th please contact the chapter commander, Forrest Walker, if you are interested in attending as a boat captain or as a veteran.
Forrest has been boating on Lake St. Clair for many years and was previously a boat captain with us. In 2015 he became the commander of the Lake St. Clair Chapter. Being the commander of this chapter is only Forrest's most recent foray into giving back to the community. His history of volunteering and giving includes involvement in the "Big Brother, Big Sister" program and the "Knights of Columbus". With Forrest's at the helm this chapter has grown it's event and has taken on more officers to help handle parts of both the fundraiser and the boating events.
If you have any questions about this chapter or the events please reach out to Forrest via phone or email.
