Dear Members,

By all reports Marietta and I  missed an interesting Chapter Meeting while traveling last month.  Both seasoned and less experienced members brought references that surprised many as very useful and some unique.  With that in mind, I'm asking Rod to post the list as compiled by Shirley on our Web site for all to reference. 

REGIONAL UPDATE:  We are "firing on all cylinders" now bringing the planning process to a close and moving into the real thing on May 14th. 
Here's what you can do: 1) Contact Mark DeAtley and volunteer as a Red Cap; 2) Bring a clock, watch or other horological item to the auction prior to 3PM on Friday May 15th. 3) Volunteer or respond to a request for help with the Regional.
Now is the time to register for the Regional especially if you want a Mart Table but first make sure you are current with your national membership.  So far over 80 tables are sold and more registrations are coming in the mail everyday.

CHAPTER MEETING:  Steve Ford and new member Justin Crawford their methods of utilizing electronic devices in clock repair and communication with customers around the world..  If you have been coming to Chapter meetings you know how interesting and /or helpful these presentations have been.

PALMER ANTIQUE SALE:  Thanks to Jeff Eastwood for championing this event and all who participated in any respect especially, promoting Chapter 31. Participants:

Jeff Eastwood, Bob Ballenger, Jeff Gonzalez, Stoddard Smith, Larry Nye, Merl Snell, Bob Morris, Shirley Barden,  Tom Hammond, Chris Loders, Al Weibel, Bill Butcher and Rick Schermerhorn.  From the Chapter, thanks to each of you for taking the time.

JUNE 14th:  Mark your Calender for the June Chapter meeting (not Father's Day).  

Hope to see everyone at the April Chapter meeting.
