Galaxy Council Member of the Month
Member of the Month – Each month the Galaxy Community Council profiles one of its members. This month’s member is:
Peter Panaretos- If you remember the sound of the B-52’s, KC-135’s and other aircraft assigned to Westover ARB you probably lived in Chicopee or East Springfield. Such is the case of this month’s Galaxy Council’s Member of the Month, Peter Panaretos. Growing up under the flight path of those great aircraft, Peter loved to watch them fly over his house. Peter and his wife Mary were both in scouting and took their pack to several of the receptions that greeted returning troops from Desert Storm. “It made you feel great to be an American” Peter said. Employed as Director of Operations for Excel Dryer Inc in East Longmeadow, MA, Peter is married to the former Mary Knightly and has a son Bill. The Panaretos’ Family reside in the Fairview section of Chicopee and enjoy watching the C-5’s come and go from Westover.. Prior to joining the Galaxy Council Peter did volunteer work for the USO. Peter, It is great to have you as a member of the Galaxy Council Peter. We appreciate your help in so many ways.
