Galaxy Council Member of the Month
Whenever your boss says “I’ve got something for you that you’re gonna like”, be careful! In this case it was something Bob did like! Springfield Department of Public Works Director and Galaxy Community Council member Al Chwalek was offering to sponsor his DPW computer whiz Bob Houldson’s membership into the Galaxy Council. Bob immediately accepted Al’s offer as Al frequently talked about the Council its mission and members. Also, Bob’s father and grandfather served in the military and Bob felt that by being a member of the Galaxy Council, he could render some contribution to supporting the mission at Westover ARB and, have an enjoyable time doing it. Bob was born in Springfield and graduated from Westfield State College with a degree in Business Management. An excellent hockey player, Bob played both high school and college hockey. While in high school he participated in a European Good Will tour playing hockey in Italy, Austria and Switzerland. Married to the former Lisa Orlandi and the father of two girls Baylee and Carli, Bob is very involved in coaching in the Springfield East Forest Park leagues. Bob’s contribution to the Galaxy Council includes serving on the board of directors, managing the Galaxy website and working every air show and family day. Bob Houldson is a fine example of the type of member that makes the Galaxy Council such a great organization. Thanks Bob for your support.
