September 2021 News Notice

Salem Chapter NW Steelheaders—News Notice

My last “News Notice” to you was about our September 2021 meeting and plans for a “Pizza dinner” to restart the chapter activities.
The Salem Chapter Board of Directors has agreed that we should postpone that meeting. Our concern is:
The virility of the COVID 19 and what it has morphed into is of concern.
The limited number of hospital beds and staff to care for patients contracting the disease and the average age of our members.
The Oregon Health Authorities at the governor’s direction has reinstated the mask requirement.
The Keizer City Hall and Community Center is requesting that persons entering the building wear masks. 

We still plan to “Restart” our chapter at a later date. Please check your E-mail, and visit our chapter web page: .

Salem Chapter leaders.  If our chapter is remaining active, we need some help from the membership. President Rod Ratzlaff will not continue as chapter president after the first of the year. 
Bob Johnston will not continue as chapter secretary after the first of the year.
The office of Vice President has been vacant and needs to be filled. 
Members of the board of Directors have done an excellent job and has been very generous with their time. Board members speak for themselves; we can always use new members, new ideas for the board.  It is time for chapter members to step up and give this chapter some new direction and motivation. 
We are asking for some volunteers to step forward and fill the offices. Please contact President Rod Ratzlaff at [email protected] or myself at [email protected], thank you.

Respectfully submitted,
Bob Johnston, Chapter Secretary
