There is no question the Covid-19 pandemic has had an overwhelming effect on many parts of American society and organizations. The effect on the 108th Griffon Association is no exception.

Event Cancellations

Several of our events have had to be cancelled. The annual membership picnic is one of them. The other is the annual golf tournament which is our main source of revenue to fund the various activities of the association.

The awarding of post secondary scholarships was directly impacted this year by the Covid-19. However, we did fulfill this objective by awarding 13 individuals, from throughout the 108th Training Command with a $300 scholarship to each of the 13 applicants. It was our desire, assuming we could have the golf tournament, to award a second installment.

We encourage all future applicants not to be discouraged for the 2021-2022 academic school year. Persons eligible for a post secondary scholarship are present and civilian members of the 108th Training Command and their direct descendants up to and including grandchildren. Past 108th Training Command members, who have served honorably, are also eligible for themselves and their direct dependents up to and including grandchildren.

Become a Member

It is obvious, with the reduced income in 2020 from fund raising activities that membership in the 108th Griffon Assoc. is of increased importance. If you are a present member who has not renewed for 2020 we encourage you to do so. If not a member, we strongly encourage you to join. Tax deductible dues are only $10 per year or $108 for a lifetime membership. You may be assured the money received will be funneled directly back into the 108th Training Command and its activities. You may obtain a membership application from our website www.108thgriffonassoc.com.
