Greetings Altair Crew. This is a very short monthly report for October. We are waiting on the final bank and reunion statements before making a financial report. As soon as the figures are available, I will make a report. Here is a statement from Shipmate Dick Stader:
"First of all I want to let all of you know about Richies fall from grace,well not exactly from grace but from a golf course yesterday I think while trying to save a bad shot or whatever, in any case he took a header and shattered his right shoulder and is going to spend thanksgiving in the hospital, so keep he and Angie in your thoughts and prayers. Now for the real reason of this e-mail is that I have finally went over all the paper work from the reunion in New Orleans and have this to report, that we started out with a check book balance of $6794.18, and now have a balance of $ 7000 and change so if my figures are correct and the bank statement I am waiting on agrees my balance ,then we netted $250 and change. I will confirm that in the next few days but I am pretty sure my figures are correct, so New Orleans was not as bad (money wise) as we expected. If you want to put an e-mail out to all hands to that effect Charles, feel free to do so, or wait a few till I get the bank statement to confirm, whatever you feel is right. In case you don"t respond to this e-mail have a happy
Thanksgiving and eats lots of turkey and watch lots of football.
Shipmate Passing: Shipmate Lt. Joe T. Reeves passed away April 28, 2013. As I recall, Shipmate Reeves was a helio pilot aboard in 1964. Condolences can be sent to his son, Bruce Reeves at bruce [at] bmmr.net.
I hope all Altair Shipmates and their families have a great and very THANKFUL Thanksgiving.
