YOUR TURN: Rick Chandra thanks Memphians for supporting Virginia Tech

This week's Your Turn segment goes to Rick Chandra representing the Memphis Chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association

Chandra forwarded the group's letter thanking people in our area for their support of a fundraiser to help victims of the Virginia Tech massacre.

Here's their letter:

This event started as a plan for some of us to show our support.  From there it snowballed with help from the local media, generosity of local businesses, and the hard work of many individuals within our association. Just one hour into the event, the room was overflowing with folks from all walks of life, many who had no connection to Virginia Tech whatsoever. It seemed like the energy in the room would somehow be felt by the people who were directly affected by these horrific events. 

That's Rick Chandra's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
