March 2016

The March meeting was called to order by Club President Jim Zocchi at 7:07PM, 31 March, 2016 at the Fort Douglas Museum.

The Pledge of Allegiance was said while looking at a paper flag on a podium located in the room. For some reason no cloth flag was available, interesting!

As March is the month to re-elect Board members, Bob Boettcher moved that elections be held. George seconded the motion and all were in favor. Bill Abbott nominated all current officers to continue. Nominations were closed and a vote was taken. All officers were re-elected which are as follows: President: Jim Zocchi: Vice President; Bob Boettcher: Treasurer: George Spargen: Secretary: Dave Barber: Quartermaster: Layne Schoenfeld (who was hoping to move on and out of the position.. But the members present wouldn’t hear of it), Fort Douglas Museum Liaison: COL (ret) Bob Voyles; Community Contact/liaison: Ed Smith (Ed was lamenting the fact that no one ever calls him… But we can change that); Webmaster: Mike Fernandez; and Newsletter editor: Pete Park.

George Spargen reported the actual amount we have in our bank account. Come to the meetings and you can know the amount. 2016 dues are now requested if you haven’t paid. Over twenty five members have completed the process and if you need George’s address, look in the newsletter or call him to get it.

The Quartermaster, Layne, reported that there is no change in the inventory and that he has product to sell, contact him for the exact items.
