“Joe” Voge, USA, (Ret)
Our annual Scholarship/Awards Dinner was a great success. There were two scholarship winners and seven
MOAA certificate with medal winners, as well as two Science Fair winners. The parents and JROTC instructors were in
attendance. The scholarship winners were
from the Forest and Dunnellon High School JROTC programs. The certificate with medal awards is given to
deserving JROTC cadets from the seven-county high schools that have JROTC
programs. Nick Navetta organized and
presented the awards at their individual schools. Tom Dann introduced the Science Fair winners
who happen to be brothers, one from high school and the other from middle
school. I am confident that everyone had
a good time.
It was special this
year because it was held at the Ocala Ballroom in the Sovereign Building. The arrangements were made by Nick Navetta
for which we are thankful. He contracted
“ClawMamas” catering, who provided room setup, the sound system, and the food,
which was excellent. In a very patriotic
manner, an open bar was donated by “Fishhawk Spirits” for the night. The centerpieces were also donated by
“Blooming Events”. Letters of
appreciation will be sent to each of these businesses.
Our Thursday luncheon featured Oncologist, Dr. Norm
Anderson. His “two treatment per day”
method of radiation therapy seems to be extremely effective in the treatment of
cancerous skin disorders. His before and
after pictures of his patients were more than convincing that his method
works. The question was asked as to the
treatment of internal maladies by the same method. He replied that they can be successful. Both Frank and Bill, both former patients, touted
his method with their stories of recovery.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on September 1st.
