June 2014 by Charles Brecheisen

Greetings Altair Shipmates.  Here is your monthly report for June 2014.

I hope every Shipmate and their family had a safe and happy Fourth of July!

FINANCIAL:  The beginning and ending cash-on-hand is $791.81.  The beginning and ending Altair Savings is $6599.61 for an overall cash balance of $7391.42.  No income nor any expenses.

SOCIAL MEDIA:  I must make a comment or two about the Internets' social media, i.e. Facebook.  Due to an unfortunate situation here at Holly Lake Ranch, I was forced to join a group of residents who are in conflict with our Board of Directors.  The Holly Lake Ranch BOD seems to have the attitude that they are there "of the few, by the few and for the few."  So, we, a majority of the residents, have a Facebook group fighting them.  As soon as this battle is either over or lost, I will get the heck out of Facebook.  I know there are quite a few shipmates who are wondering why I do not respond............but I won't and will be quitting Facebook soon as soon as I can.

REUNION:  PLEASE, if you plan to attend the reunion in Las Vegas this year, PLEASE make your reservations!  For questions or additional information, please contact Richie Reiss at rjr940 [at] or phone 702-407-0626.

SHIPMATE PASSING:  I was notified that Frank R. Higgins, FN, 1953-1956 had passed away in 2010.  Our condolences to the Higgins family

SHIPMATES:  Please welcome aboard John E. Proch, YN1, 1961 - 1962.  Shipmate Proch resides in North Fort Myers, FL.  Also, please welcome aboard Roger L. Pauls, SA, 1961 - 1963; Shipmate Pauls resides in Sun City, AZ.

All for now.  For any comments or questions, please contact me at cmbaltairaks32 [at]
