May 2017 by Charles M. Brecheisen

Greetings Altair Shipmates.  Here is your monthly report for May 2017.

Late spring and early summer in East Texas has been nice and cool with
lots of rain.  I have a huge toadstool farm here!

REUNION:  If you are planning to attending the Altair Reunion in Myrtle Beach, October 11-15, and have not registered yet.......Please do so as soon as you can.  It is very important!!

SHIPMATES PASSING:  The following Altair shipmates have passed:
  • Henderson, Edgar L, RD2, 1958-1961.  I remember serving with Shipmate Henderson very well.  The family can be reached at 4275 N. Hinkle Road, Bloomington, IN 47408-9362; 812-336-4584 Passed April 7, 2017.

I have sent condolence cards to both families from all the Altair Shipmates.

FINANCIAL:  The beginning and ending cash on hand balance is $500.80.  The beginning and ending savings balance is $8545.32. The total cash balance is $9046.12.  There was no income or expenses.

SHIPMATE:  Shipmate Dan Douglas was contacted by Shipmate Eugene Dutriel, SK1, 1958-1960 asking about the Altair reunion.  We are trying to track down an mailing address for Shipmate Dutriel as he is interested in attending the reunion.  He lives in Raleigh, NC.  More to follow.

All for now.  If you have any comments or questions please use "cmbaltairaks32 [at]" to contact me.

Best Regards To All..........Charles
