It is with deep gratitude that I reflect on your electing me to be the President of our Washington DC, Metro Area Chapter. It was with great joy that we gathered in March 2022 at the Thanksgiving Service in celebration of the 177th anniversary of the founding of the Grammar School. We did not only take this as an opportunity to put the COVID pandemic in the rear-view mirror but more so to rekindle our hopes for the future marked with celebration and more reasons to give thanks to whom all thanks are due.
