    WE have been notified that we can restart our meetings at the Library.


     Do you want to go back to old schedule or would you prefer a change?


     Right now Saturdays are not open but we could hold meeting the Head Librarian stated.  I tend to think during week better because help would be there for us. We can move to Saturdays after the  date opens for services.

    They are hoping by first part of the next year to open on Saturdays.

    If you have not checked out the updates and changes you will be amazed.

    Truly enjoy dropping in and chatting with the crew and checking out all the changes.  

    Remember we are having General Meeting there the day before Thanksgiving. It will also be a zoom meeting for those who do not wish to attend in person.

    IF you read this please respond with your comments. We can do a small meeting in December to get realigned to the changes and move forward. She would love for us to meet this month also but timing is so short. 


    Advise please your feelings of which you prefer.

    I have found data can be garnered from magazines as well as books.

    The service  organizations of the military have some great information in them if you can get ahold of them.  Also our Memorial sites magazines have data.  So you may not  get to the site but you can  learn a lot by joining the organization. Especially if you know the person was service orientated and which one.  

    We recently got one that had much data on my husbands units to our shock and delight.


    Karen Y. If you read this  do you know if your brother would have such a list aboard the carrier USS Midway.?


    If you want the names of some you can contact me also. Each service does have data.

    I said last month I would start adding data here for people to find and learn but I do not know if anyone has read any of it. Gary can you tell me anyone has. 

    Having lots of tidbits to share with society members, since time is minimal for me now. But it is good information.


    Thanks Gary?

    I was looking for a chat room where we could intermingle and share, communicate. 

    Of course we can do this here but cumbersome at best. I have used it off and on but seldom  is it read what is here.

    She will be 89 years young.

    She is recovering from a couple of serious illnesses but making progress. 

    Just an FYI for those whom asked.

    Due to sudden situation, we may do things a week later than originally discussed.  We will meet at either Virginia's or my house and go over the Applications. One school has responded so far. I hope more do. 

    We lost a key person in this so adjusting a bit.  If you haven't done this and want to contact me.  I have asked five so far but we lost one maybe two due to health situations.  Fortunately we have time to notify the schools before May arrives. Contact me if you want to help.  

    Cindy T., Virginia T., Shirley B., Gonzalo and wife if possible., Karen S.

    SusiCP1@gmail.com or SusiCP@cox.net, its working again.
