Greeting Altair Shipmates. Here is your report for August 2014.
SHIPMATE SEARCH: There are only 260 shipmates on the email list, down from about previous 370-380. Several weeks ago I re-sent out the last batch of snail mail letters as a last attempt trying to track down non-response shipmates. All but a few have been returned to me as unknown, etc. There are approximately 115 shipmates without email that are snail mailed. I will be making adjustments to my record keeping to delete non-response from my current records. I will still maintain a "Master" list that will show everyone that has been on the shipmate list with all their info; (includes deceased shipmates).
DECEASED SHIPMATES: Mrs. Pauline Daily notified me that BTC Ralph E. Daily, 1953-1956 had passed away in September 2007. We were notified that SK3 Sampson Benjamin Feyl, 1962-1965 passed away December 2009. Our condolences to the respective families.
FINANCIAL: The beginning Cash-on-hand balance was $811.81. I transferred $500.00 to the Altair Savings Account and bought stamps for $49 leaving a balance of $262.81. The beginning Altair Savings Account was $6599.61 plus the addition of $500.00 leaving a balance of $7099.61.
