Invocation, Presentation of the Colors, Remarks by Chapter President Colonel Segal

The Triangle Chapter of MOAA gathered on October 17th, 2023, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Triangle Chapter. The celebration, featuring Col Rojan J. Robotham, USAF, as guest speaker, kicked-off with an invocation by Colonel Herb Segal, followed by presentation of the Colors by Cadets of the Cary High School NJROTC Color Guard.

A delicious dinner, prepared and served by the wonderful staff of the NC Strate University Club, followed the opening remarks.

Colonel Rojan J. Robotham, USAF, was our guest speaker.

The observance took place in the University Room of the NC State University Club, 4200 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27606.

Colonel Herb Segal kicked off our Observance in a manner similar to when US Congressman Patrick McHenry recently called the House of Representatives to Order while serving as Speaker, by quoting General George Washington's invocation of June 8, 1783.

Colonel Bob Penney introduced the Cary High School NJROTC Color Guard and led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Colonel Segal recognized guests attending from the North Carolina Council of Chapters and from other NC Chapters.
