President Pete’s Oval Office: Another great meeting this month. I’m pleased to report that Jerry Montoya’s surgery went very well and he’s back at home recovering. I’d also like to say congratulations to China Boys son for his promotion to COL and also congratulations to the Jefferson family and their new grandson. At the June meeting our “official” CH9 coin was voted on and thanks to Steve F, Mike’s motto of “Hard Times Don’t Last, But Hard Men Do” is inscribed on it which is a deserving tribute to Mike Jefferson and inspiration to his new grandson.
