October 2015 by Charles Brecheisen

Greetings Altair Shipmates.  Here is your monthly report for October 2015.

Not much news.........The Branson reunion was a 'howling' success and all had a great time.  

FINANCIAL: The beginning cash-on-hand balance was $565.93 with no income and expenses of $118.48 leaving a balance of $447.45.  Expenses were inks, stamps and mailing costs.  The beginning and ending Altair savings balance is $8,068.25 leaving a total Altair cash balance of $8,515.70.  

UP-DATE PLEA:  Each shipmate mailing always results in between 5-10 returns.  The returns are mainly for addressee unknown, recipient address rejected or account not available.  Each month I snail mail an Altair letter to each addressee hoping to get a new email address or find out why the rejection.  Every once in a while, I get a return with a new email or snail mail address.  I snail mail each rejected address 3 months in a row and if no answer, I will remove their email address from the lists.  I do not take them off any other lists and will always have their last known email and snail mail address.  So, PLEASE, if you move to a new address, or get a new email address, please let me know.  We don't want to lose any  shipmate!!

That's all folks.........please do not reply to this email.  For info and questions, please use cmbaltairaks32 [at]

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