Col. Comtois, Willow Grove Air Reserve Station Commander visits club

We were very pleased to welcome Col. Comtois to our club on October 2, 2008. Thanks to Lion Larry Glemser, also of the 111th Fighter Wing, Pa. Air National Guard, who extended the invitation.

The Col. presented an informative slide show to our members, answered questions, and shared stories about the future of the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base. The Col. helped explain that while the base as we currently know it will be changing, and many of these changes have yet to be determined, we will still have an Air Reserve Station.

Also in attendance this night was our neighboring club, the Willow Grove Lion's Club. Upon hearing that the Col. would be available to answer questions at the meeting, President Will Smith of the Willow Grove Club, contact his members to invite them to join us for dinner. It's always nice to host visiting clubs, it was especially nice to see these members again.

Willow Grove Lions Club will be starting a donation collection program, gathering items to be donated to soldiers overseas. Both Larry Glemser and Col. Comtois were able to help direct them on where to get specific questions about their upcoming service project answered. The Horsham Lions Club, as well as other local clubs, will be invited to join in this worthwhile service project.

Thanks to Larry Glemser who initiated this presentation, and thanks also to the entire Willow Grove Club, and especially to Col. Comtois for being our guests.
