You may have one of the best organizations I have seen for some time. From what I have heard and what I have seen on the this website this is not just a buddy hangout, but a true organization with a purpose to train and educate those around us. Well done!

Looking for input on things a FOOLS Chapter DO, we have a small core group of members and most of our members are interested but are very busy. I am hoping to keep the interest growing so I am looking for info on social, fund raising, service and training events. Looking for what worked well and what you wouldn't do again.

Thanks - Ed

Hello, I just thought of this site as a way to say 'Thank You' to all of those who checked up, called, or came by the hospital after my accident. I was the Bass drummer who was involved in the accident Wednesday night after the FOOLS Bash at FDIC back in April. The next three days while I was in the hospital, I lost track of the people who were checking up on me. offering me rides home back to Dayton. The feeling of brotherhood, the love and respect that I received was just unbelieveable. Thanks again to each of you. Be safe, and God willing I'll see you next year.
