I am posting this because I want do want to give a little
background on myself since I am running for Treasurer
of the Club which I feel is a big responsibility.
Some of you I did meet at the June Tournament, others
I have met on-line buying or selling strikes.
Many not knowing me, I feel this should give you a little
background to help you make your decision on your vote.
I feel that between my wife, being a banker for 42 years,
retired as an Asst. Vice President, Bank of Boston, and me
owning 2 retail stores for 30 years, that we do have the
background to do this in a proper and efficient manner.
Sept. 15th of this year was our 38th wedding anniversary.
I will be 71 Dec. 29th & it is not nice to ask a lady her age.
I am a Vietnam Veteran / U.S. Marine Corps, awarded the
Silver Star and Purple Hearts for being wounded. I have
a 100% disability rating from the VA. I also worked as a
radio and TV personality, and entertained in clubs for a
good many years - 50's & 60's music.
We are both born and raised in Massachusetts, Mary in
Holyoke and myself in Springfield, both in Western Mass.
on the Mass - Conn line. We both have been retired since
2000 and basically now travel extensively thru Europe and
the United States every year.

If anyone has any questions about my background or any
other questions about me - please feel free to e-mail me ...
Thanks for your consideration when casting your vote
Al and Mary Varelas
