Hello Federation Members,

This is my first update as Chairman of the Board.  I would like thank all of you for your support and opportunity to work for our membership to the best of my ability.  It is an honor for me to serve with our team of elected and appointed directors to make our organization and membership stronger going forward.

The Jim Vanduyne Memorial Fundraiser

The Board initiated a memorial fundraiser to benefit Celia Vanduyne, a 32-year member of our Moo Duk Kwan community, following the death of her husband Jim Vanduyne.  We were able to raise close to $23K for Celia to support her in this time of need.  I would like to thank all members who participated in this fundraising event.  Thank you for your loyalty and service, Celia. 

In closing, I would like to thank you once again and hope to see all of you in Orlando in July.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the elected board director in your region.  Thank you.

Yours in Moo Duk Kwan,

John Kim
Chairman of the Board
