Welcome to FMS – Philadelphia Chapter

Dear FMS friends,

The Officers and Directors of the FMS Philadelphia Chapter have always prided ourselves on providing quality educational sessions to you, especially when it comes to our All Day Seminar, traditionally held in April. We had scheduled a date of April 17th this year, but unfortunately we must postpone the event until later in 2020, due to circumstances beyond our control.  We look forward to seeing you at the later date for a great day of learning.

We have also considered our annual Installation Dinner, which had been scheduled for May 1, 2020, and we feel we must postpone this event as well. We hope that you and your family and friends stay safe and we will see you at a future date.

Thank you,

Dorothy L. Jaworski, President

FMS Philadelphia Chapter

FMS Philadelphia Chapter is proud to donate to Tails of Valor, a charity that trains service dogs for veterans with PTSD and other challenges. Tails of Valor has named their latest service dog “Jaws” in honor of Pfc. Stephen W. Jaworski, who served in the 5th Infantry Division during World War II and was killed in action in eastern France in 1944. Chapter President Dorothy Jaworski is very grateful for the honor to Stephen and we are all excited to see Jaws grow and train. Many thanks to Jana Spess, President of Tails of Valor.
