Region 4 Report
Making Things Happen
The first six months have been exciting and rewarding. Having
attended state council meetings in Alabama, Georgia, and my home
state of Florida, I would like to thank every member and AVVA
member who welcomed my wife and me to their meeting with good,
The membership of the region has
spoken. It is their desire that Region 4 not hold a regional
conference, but instead that, as director, I attend as many state
council meetings as possible.
It was discussed and voted on that chapters would have more
representation at state council meetings than at a regional
conference. From what I have observed in my visits, they are
right. I will be traveling to Alabama in June and to Puerto Rico
as soon as possible.
Having already been to Georgia and Florida twice and Alabama
once, I can see that the presidents have been doing a great job.
They are making things happen, and the chapters are taking care of
veterans and their families in their communities.
We need to work on communication. It's important that we
maintain an open line of communication with each other. I am open
to suggestions from the membership.
Soon chapters will be holding elections, followed by state
council elections. I would like to remind every member in the
region to vote. It's your right; it's your chapter; it's what you
choose to make it. Get involved and be active.
On a sad note, it is with deep sorrow I report to you that Tito
Molina, State Council President of Puerto Rico, passed away. His
devotion and hard work for the veterans of Puerto Rico will always
be remembered, and his smile and laughter never will be forgotten.
Wallace Reyes is now the Puerto Rico State Council President.
We welcome him and offer him all the assistance he may desire.
In closing, I would like to remind every one of you that we are
a brotherhood, and we take care of each other.
