In Memoriam: Grant Chase

Eugene Chapter mourns the loss of Grant Chase, its vice president and show chairman. Grant, ever generous with time and friendship, fell from a defective ladder July 7, 1995, and never regained consciousness.

Over $3000 was contributed by his friends for the Grant B. Chase Memorial Fund. A memorial bench and seating area in his name in Hendrick's Park Rhododendron Garden will be constructed, with his widow, Dottie, and friends assisting in the plans and work. A permanent Grant B. Chase Show Trophy for Best Truss in Show is also planned.

Heartfelt condolences to his family for their great loss.
