SUCCESSFUL 63rd STATE CONFERENCE
The 63rd Annual Maine State Conference was held at the beautiful Samoset Resort in Rockport. We were truly honored to have National Recording Secretary Connor Jackson, Senior National Corresponding Secretary Trish Jackson, Honorary Senior National President Hans Jackson and State Regent Sandy Swallow in attendance with us. We also enjoyed a wonderful presentation by Martha Kempe from the Wayfinder Schools, during which she explained the wonderful work being done by the schools and how the money raised by Maine C.A.R. over the last year will be used.
Thank you to everyone who has already submitted content for the 2013 – 2014 State President’s Project of collecting stories of veterans. We have already compiled dozens, but we want MORE! Please continue to conduct interviews, collect information, transcribe letters or diaries, or ask veterans or current service members to write something about their service. We are looking for as many primary accounts as possible! Send your stories to Senior State Vice President Adam Bartow and help ensure that the service of these brave men and women is not forgotten.
