I am pleased that President Mike Elston has appointed Paul Walden of the George Washington Chapter as the Virginia SAR Newsletter Editor, effective December 16th. Paul will make an outstanding editor. I will be the Assistant Editor, and will use my experience to help Paul as he implements his vision for the future of our newsletter. The position of Assistant Editor should eventually be filled by someone who will prepare himself to move up when Paul accepts other responsibilities, as I am sure is his fate. The position of Newsletter Editor is an ideal place to learn about our society and prepare for state level leadership. My thanks to Paul for accepting this responsibility and my wishes that he enjoy his certain success.
