NATIONAL COMMANDER’S MESSAGE
Brethren, Fellow Heroes and Visitors,
I am still in awe of being elected, accepted and installed as National Commander of the Heroes of ’76. The trip to Vermont for our 92nd Annual National Convention was a hoot for Lady Diane and me―and we were impressed with the different mountain ranges we traversed along the way. When you see such beauty, how can anyone deny there is a God.
I want to thank the Heroes National Line for their service this year to our beloved Order and the Sojourners National Line for the advice they have yet to dispense―yes, I’m talking about you Brother National President Bob!
As my fund raiser for the Sojourners Endowment Memorial (SEM) Fund I am pleased to offer a unique Case Knife with the Heroes emblem on the handle in a Tin Presentation Box as shown below (CLICK HERE for a larger more detailed view). The HEROES KNIFE was designed with the help of Brother D. P. Payton and are serially numbered from the Case factory. You may obtain one or more for a donation of $50 each.
I am also pleased to provide as an addition fund raiser for the SEM fund, a Special Patch as shown below. The Special Patch was designed by Brother Michael J. Cote to commemorate the upcoming 93rd Annual National Convention in San Antonio in June 2013. The Special Patch may be yours for a donation of $10 each.
As noted above, all proceeds from the donations received for these items will be passed on to the SEM Fund. Although I have not set a “goal” for this fund raising project, I am looking to the membership for your support to make it a success―so help me with my quest Brethren and make your donation for a HEROES KNIFE and SPECIAL PATCH.
If you desire to communicate with me, my contact information is provided below. Orders for HEROES KNIVES and SPECIAL PATCHES may be mailed to me along with your check payable to “David Gardner”―be sure and specify the quantity of each item and provide your mailing address. I will send your items to you by mail.
