President's message: This is pretty much Yoshie & I's farewell address to the chapter. We've loved every minute that we've spent with you! From the real beginning of Riverside in 2010 with a two year hiatus then back to a three year tour and seeing our chapter regain some of it's lost momentum. This can't be done without the volunteers that make things happen and we are very pleased to say that the leadership team for the next term of office is a fine group that we are proud to have ready to take the Southwest Florida Chapter 6049 into the future!
