Chair Report by Barbara Berthiaume
Myron Vogt was diagnosed with a recurrence of lung cancer and was operated on at the University
of Washington Hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with Myron and
Valeria at this time.
The pandemic has stopped most of the Bluebill activities, and we will
take it a step at a time to see what we can continue to do safely.
Additionally, several Key people of the organization are moving on or passed away,
It will take our entire membership to work to ensure the Bluebills continue to thrive.
