Club News April 2012
WEB PAGE http://www.chillisportsmen.org
I am saddened to announce that Cliff Wilcox, a
Chillicothe Sportsmen's Club Life Member of many years, passed away on
Wednesday 7 March. I, along with many of our members, have
enjoyed knowing him for a long time. Cliff loved his country, his
military service (along with all those who have served), and our organization.
In spite of the fact that his health has not been good the past few years,
he was always willing to help in any way he could. He took over the
production of our newsletter a couple months ago, making a number of tremendous
improvements. To his family, we extend our thoughts and prayers. We shall miss
Jim Martin, one of our board members, will be taking charge of our newsletter. I am confident that Jim's keen eye for detail and his well-honed organizational skills will be a tremendous asset. Please help Jim and our club by submitting news and information to him in a timely basis. His contact information can be found further in this letter.
"What springs from earth dissolves to
earth again, and heaven-born things fly to their native seat."
