He is still a Committee Member with Toledo Troop 30 as well as on the district commission for the Yaquina District from 1995- 2005. He is still very active with Troop 30, he does many events like the annual rendezvous where he helps with the buck saw event. With the help of Toledo's Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4227, he has provided opportunities for scouts to earn their Eagle Scouts and a place for weekend outings and camping. Annually with help from VFW Post 4227, Chuck and Troop 30 place flags on every Veteran grave at the Toledo Cemetery.
Chuck has been an active member of VFW post 4227 since 2003. He was Post Commander from 2017-2019 currently he is Senior Vice Post Commander. During his time as Commander he brought the membership from 31 to currently 69 members. He initiated the Junior/Senior high scholarships for Toledo, Eddyville and Lincoln City as well as awards for Police, Fire and Teachers.

He may have retired in 1999 but that just gave him more time to be active in this community.
