Heaven will be more lively

Veteran NWI Chapter member and chapter historian John Fredrickson had passed away October 17, 2019.

John’s fellowship will be missed as he would chair our nominating committee, set up displays at shows, sell magazines and other items for the benefit of this chapter year after year.

John, a Navy veteran, was a month shy of 75 years old.
So it is that the Chapter must find a new Chapter Historian. Our Historian would maintain our supply of sales items, chapter displays and handle show set-ups. If you are interested, please contact any Board member.

The NWI Chapter has a limited supply of
