COMMENT: We hope everyone keeps safe and healthy. We have spent the summer dealing with a global health crisis. Fall is here, and now we must prepare for winter, but cannot let down our guard. We thank all of you so much for your incredible support of chapter 16 during this chaotic time.  

TAPS:  - James E. Price, Air Force retiree, died  September 21, 2020. He was so energetically involved in the DAV organization,  dedicated to helping veterans, military organizations such as DAV, VFW, and the Salina community. All will deeply miss him. Extend your thoughts and prayers to his wife, Ellen, and family.

CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP:  Total number of members 47.  New member Alicia Perry (B.

FINANCIAL REPORT:   We spent $16.50 on stamps,  $30.00 one free membership, and received $137.00 Free Will Donations.    $1424.61 is in our checking account.  We thank those you who donated. Two upcoming significant expenditures are $588.00 in December for storage and $88.00 for a Post Office mailbox.

FLU SHOTS: The SENIOR FLU vaccine provides more robust flu protection for people 65 or older. It helps strengthen your body’s immune response against the flu, so ask for the Senior Flu Shot. The Salina VA clinic gives the regular flu shot by appointment. Hopefully, soon the clinic will receive over 65 serum. Local Pharmacies such as Key Rexall, Dillons, Walgreens, etc.  have both flu vaccines.  Medicare should cover the shot cost. VA Salina Clinic 1-785-826-1580.
