A New Format Thanks to help from the Vaglica brothers for another achievement , we hope to now have an online news letter. We have eighteen members who have provided their addresses so this copy of the newsletter will be sent via the net. We will still send copies by snail mail to those

who do not have email. With this new ability to save money I have once again begun to create a newsletter that has more than bare bones information. I hope you can open this letter so we can once again have better communication between us.

Remember Our Bouckville Tour?
