SHIPMATE PASSING: Mike Troiano reports that Jerome "JJ" Campbell, SN 1964-1965 passed away in 2005. Our condolances to the Campbell family.
FINANCIAL: WOW again! A total of 62 shipmates have paid dues this year. It's really nice to have so many shipmates involved with the Altair Shipmate Group. THANKS! The beginning balance was $1126.64 with receipts of $100.00 leaving a balance of $1226.64.
TEXAS DROUGHT: It is so dry here in E. TX that our oak trees are dying, our pine trees are dying and our dogwood trees are dying. We had no measurable rain in either May or June and no prospect of rain in sight. My cactus garden is even dying. We did not even get a drop of rain from Katrina! Of course, we have a county burn ban, fireworks ban and are on water rationing. We cannot even BBQ! It's going to be a very long hot summer!
All for now. Please contact me with any questions or comments.
Best Regards To All...........
