After four years serving on the MAD Board of Directors, Donna McDowell has announced her retirement and is stepping down from the board. Donna will remain an active volunteer and supporter of MAD.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Jeff Schmucker of Newport, NC has accepted a second term on the MAD Board Of Directors! Jeff will also continue his role as Head of Fund Raising.
Rich Anderson retired as COO of MAD Inc. After over a decade of service to MAD he’s due a vacation. Fortunately, Hank Pomeranz (current president of the MAD Southport NC Chapter) has accepted the responsibility of keeping the financials of MAD in order as the new COO.
Please join me in welcoming Jeff and Hank in their increased roles with MAD while we thank Donna and Rich for their immeasurable contributions.
ONE. SIMPLE. THANKS.
Board Of Directors Military Appreciation Day Inc.
MAD Morehead City 2019 is being postponed. At this time we do not have enough volunteers to plan an amazing day for our military families and rather than host an event that is not up to our standards, we have elected to postpone the annual event in Morehead City.
Our plan is to spend the next year actively recruiting new volunteers to lead the chapter and to come back in 2020 better than ever. More info here.
Thank you for volunteering or donating over the past 14 years and for making amazing memories for our military families.
MAD events in Southport, Tidewater and Charleston will be held as planned.
