Gallahue serves as Chapter Director of Fitchburg State. His chapter won the Grand Chapter Award, Grand Council Award and has consistently been on top of reporting. Gallahue wanted to highlight that none of the accomplishments from this year would have been possible without the help of the previous Chapter Director, Ben Robinson. Despite the restrictions from Massachusetts and Fitchburg, the chapter has created a meaningful experience for its members. The chapter worked to recruit actively and had a safe and successful recruitment. They were also able to hold their yearly philanthropy with Our Fathers House, a local homeless shelter.
