Retirees Luncheon Gatherings

Old friends and coworker members of the VFS (of course, we still think AHS) get together on the 1st Monday of at least most months at the Yorktown Pub at 540 Water Street.  If you arrive at about 11:30 you will have a chance to chat, have lunch and, maybe, a brew and share the old times and catch up with what we are doing now.  Afterward is a great time to take a stroll down the historic York River beach.

It’s a New Day with a Brand New Web Site

You found it just in time, the old Hampton Roads Chapter web site will not be reachable after September 11.  Please look around and let me know if you find anything in need of correction.  Also, please feel free to make suggestions about new features that you think would be of interest to Chapter members. In particular, how do you think we could best make use of this blog section? Thanks for looking in. Ed Austin (edwardaustin@cox.net).
