Member of the Quarter Q1 2023: Christopher DiBiase

Chris DiBiase, Member of the Quarter Del Webb AVMS with wife KristinChristopher DiBiase is our newest AVMS Member of the Quarter.

Chris is currently Webmaster for the AVMS site. "The Association welcomes veterans, military supporters, and all who want to serve the community. My father served in the Army and in the Navy, so I have lots of respect for our service men and women, and want to do my small part to continue serving," said Chris.

Chris and his wife Kristin have been in Del Webb for 5 years. "It's one of the best decisions we ever made," says Chris, "Del Webb Lakewood Ranch and its residents are fun, active, involved, and care for each other. Although I'm not a veteran, I am a strong supporter of a service-oriented group like AVMS that helps its community in so many ways."

Del Webb Lakewood Ranch Association of Veterans and Military Supporters welcomes you to our website.

As our Del Webb community started to develop in 2017, a small group of residents had the idea to start a group to support our military, their families and our community.

Although we're still growing and developing, we already have a couple of years of meaningful, successful events that have touched many lives. We will continue to grow with our community's support.

Our dedicated group of men and women finds ways to support our active soldiers, their families, and military retirees in need, while ensuring that our community never forgets what our troops do for us.

Please help us to make this resource a tool for all our active members, potential new members, and our Del Webb community by giving us feedback on what you like and what could be improved.

Rich Greenberg, President
