The NEPA region mourns the loss of one of its long standing board members, Chet Dombrowski. He was a great asset to the club and would always help out where needed. I didn’t really know him outside of the club, but when we did talk, he was easy going and quick with a joke. He will be greatly missed. On behalf of the NEPA board and its members, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies. -Chris Janusz (RE)
