Good Day Everyone!

February is a very important and busy month for the AFSG and the Board is asking you to step up and help us out. We have our upcoming Membership Meeting with Board elections and a great speaker. We also have our monthly Veterans Coffee Chat with another important speaker. Information on both events listed below. We also have a thank you message from Ryan Davis and his wife Asia attached, and finally our signature Veterans Golf Event that we will need all hands on deck! See Opportunity List attachment above.

We will be forwarding an invitation to our next AFSG Social at the Irish Wolf Hound on a separate email.

AFSG Membership Meeting

10 AM - Aqua Fria Room

Cimarron Center

This is a very important and interesting meeting. We will have our Charter Club Board Elections. We also have a great guest speaker, Lt. Col. Matt “HAIL” Cisar, Director of Operations, 63rd Fighter Squadron “Panthers”. Lt. Col. Cisar will be speaking about Luke AFB as well as the F-35 program and training. It should be a very interesting presentation. You may also bring a guest if you would like!

New membership pins are in for those who have ordered them and they look really great! If you have not ordered a new pin and would like to purchase one they cost $10 and you can order them before the meeting begins. We will also be having our raffle for one of our AFSG logo polo shirts!

Other News

A Thanks to everyone who was able to join us at the Saigon Kitchen on January 26, 2020 for SSGT Ryan Davis. Tom Zmugg and Kendra Frantzve did a great job organizing the event and raised $6500 to help Ryan and his wife Asia and their son. Attached you will find a video from both Ryan and Asia.

In closing, we need “all hands on deck” to sell raffle tickets beginning March 1, 2020! We expect ALL members to volunteer at least 2 hours of their personal time to help our Veterans. We also need help soliciting sponsors/donors for the Raffle or Hole Sponsorship's which could be done on your own time and schedule. Check out and fill out the Opportunity List form above with date and time. Bring it to the meeting on February 11 or mail to AFSG, 19753 Remington Drive, Surprise, AZ, 85374.

We appreciate your membership of $10, but it does not help the vital and important Veterans Programs our AFSG Club support. Your time is precious but if you really want to support our Veterans and their families in their healing journey, your time can also be priceless.

Thank you all for your support and remember whatever volunteer opportunity you may choose, you can and do make a difference!
