Vote!

Vote for NARFE Officers, Regional VPs and Bylaws!

Remember to vote for NARFE national officers, regional VPs and bylaws. Information regarding the candidates and bylaws and resolutions can be found in the March, April, May and June issues of narfe Magazine.. Your June narfe Magazine contains your hard copy ballot and pin number inserted after page 6; you can send that in or vote online.  But remember to vote!  Each NARFE member is eligible to vote this election, so take the time to do just that.  If you and your spouse were registered together, you may find that you were only  sent one pin number to vote.  Call in for assistance at the number listed on the bottom of the  ballot.  We ran into this problem in Chapter 409, so I’m assuming this may be a problem for others.  I will post the resolution when I hear from our member.

Alzheimer’s Stamp

The Frederick News Post (FNP) has a front page article about the new Alzheimer’s Postal Stamp that was approved after years of  effort by Kathy Siggins (Chapter 409).  Once the stamps are printed in the next month or so, ask at your local post office to purchase the stamps.  The funds will go to DHHS to support Alzheimer’s research.  The article can be found at:  FNP, Kathy Siggins.
