Don’t forget The Chapter now has a Facebook page!

Thanks to Chapter Member Dennis Lane of Smithfield who volunteered to set up and manage a Facebook page for chapter members. This provides an excellent opportunity for chapter members to communicate with each other. You can share your photos, your questions, and even your answers and suggestions.

If the Chapter has an email address for you, you should have received an ‘invite’ from Dennis. If you did not or perhaps have misplaced it and wish to participate on the Facebook page, please contact Dennis at or at (757) 365-0402 or (757) 810-5997. Dennis will be happy to set you up as a user.
