Fred Forster and Carolyn have been friends of ours for a long time. Fred is the President of the Blount Partnership which includes the Chamber. I'll be with him on Monday at the Chamber Board meeting and maybe Monday night at the County Commission Budget Committee meeting. I was serving on the Blount Chamber Board when we hired Fred. He is a great guy and a born leader. I remember well when he was promoted to General. I was at a printing convention in Nashville at a large hotel and there was Fred at a AFR meeting wearing his star. He has been fighting cancer but it looks like he's got it whipped. I'll tell him Monday that you were asking about him. It's kind of nice that our Chamber works with the Air Base folks. Col Deering seems like a nice guy. I don't know him very well yet but I will.
