March Meeting

E-mail Print PDF

We had a small gathering this month, but that could be expected with Spring Break on-going.  However, we did discuss several things which I want to pass on.

First the May meeting will again be held at the Veteran’s Museum in John Hunt Park.  The lunch will be provided, BBQ!  It always has been good in the past and I expect the same.  The Museum staff will give us an update with the running battle with the City over the building and grounds for a new Museum.  Remember, the luncheons are also open to spouses, so those of you who are retired, this is a chance to treat your wife or husband.

Once again, the AAA has given the Society a certificate for four tickets to a home football game (except Homecoming and Air Force) along with a VIP parking pass.  When Mike gets back from his camping trip, he will set up a site on the website to put your name in a hat for a drawing in early June for the tickets.

There was some discussion over the Oldest and Youngest Grad speaker at Founders Day.  All were in agreement that the night was too long to actually have the speakers, but all thought we should continue to have those speakers, most thought it should be treated as an honor to be asked.

Networking:  There was discussion about using the Monthly Meetings for some networking:  Topics such as Missile Defense, BRAC Construction on Post, Aviation programs,   If anyone would like to discuss something about a program they are working on, please let me know and we will add you to the agenda.  Along with this could be subjects that are of other interest:  It just hit me that we had COL Smith at Founders Day, perhaps I can get him to come in and discuss what is going on at Fox for wounded warriors and the rest of us. Maybe someone out there would like to discuss his or hers experience at West Point, in Iraq, or ?, Just let me know.

Next meeting is TAX Day  - April 15
