SAME Kittyhawk Post President’s Spring 2020 Message

President Message

8 May 2020


Hello-this is my last message as SAME Kittyhawk Post President and wow time has flown by! However, it is now time to hand over my duties to an incredible professional and friend-Joe Brink. You will be in great hands with Joe as he and I have worked shoulder to shoulder on all our Kittyhawk business over the past few years.


I am certainly grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as the post President. The post Executive Board and our various committees are passionate, energetic, and a delight to work with. I am so proud of everything we have accomplished over the past year including our excellent monthly lunches, Industry Day, the golf outing, our fun and giving Holiday social, renewed connections to Fisher House, new connections with the USO and Crayons for Classrooms, science fair judging, awarding many scholarships, supporting SAME camps, reaching out to college students, participating in TechFest, being awarded all streamers with distinction, providing yellow ribbon packages to the deployed, participating in national communities of interest, having fun young member mentoring and social events, and energizing our social media outreach. Finally, don’t forget the establishment of the Cleveland Field Chapter. Whew---what a list!


Again, thanks to all for an exciting and rewarding leadership experience. In these challenging times, I have much to be grateful for and I hope you do too. If you have any needs in response to COVID-19, please contact us so we can connect you to our resources and people. I am not going away, but will be transitioning to a new role as past-president and active post Executive Board member. What will the future hold for us together?


I am here to serve you so you can serve others.



Joe DiMisa
