                                        IMPORTANT NOTICE 

We are delighted to announce that for the first time since the pandemic surfaced, FVSO has a team going to Kontum and Pleiku to visit the kids and the Nuns.  Dave Chaix, Bart Ruud and Gene Mapa will be making the trip, our entire Auburn staff!  That means we won’t be able to pick up and process any mail until the end of January.  Please be assured that the Post Office will hold our mail and that we will respond as we always have; however, it won’t be until the end of January or early February before we can clear the inbox.  Thanks for your understanding.

 

Patrick Leary

President, FVSO
