Please check page 2 for activities and dues due this month. You don’t want to be removed from Nationals’ mailing list. Several items of importance are coming up in September. 

Thanks are offered to those people who have provided me with articles and photos of activities for this newsletter. I do put in a lot of time on this and the website.

However, I cannot chase stories individually. I would appreciate e-mails and or phone calls with any tidbits that you would think are interesting reading.

Please do not forget the last fund raiser of the year coming up on Sept 7th and 8th. If you have signed up, please show up.
