After more than eight years at the helm, long-time servant Bob Chapman is stepping down as president of the Tamworth RSL sub-branch.
Mr Chapman’s reign will officially come to an end on Sunday, although the Vietnam veteran leaves behind a great legacy of leadership and friendship, although won’t be too sorely missed.
“I will still be pretty active in the sub-branch, and can’t wait to get into our museum and sort it out,” he said.
“I will also accept senior vice-president if no one else nominates because Sandra Lambkin has taken up office in Sydney.”
Mr Chapman first joined the RSL in his hometown of Boggabri after returning from service, and after a further 22 years serving in the Army settled in Tamworth in 1991.
