If you are attending the monthly Chapter meetings at the Beaverton Library, you know that the presentations have been excellent.
Kay has an interesting meeting planned for October when anyone who has purchased a watch or clock can tell their story. Check out the details and plan to participate.
Our organization is only as strong as our members whether attending meetings on a regular basis, making presentations or helping support the organizations activities with drawing ticket sales, refreshments or a supporting role during the Regional or its many planning sessions.
For my part I'm making progress, albeit slowly in getting us public exposure at the OMSI. We have the volunteers, all we need are dates and topics that will become the demonstrations we can show the public concerning the many aspects of clock and watch collecting.
The Regional planning committee met again and hammered out a schedule of events that will result in the best Regional ever.
Look for more workshops in the coming months---I'm told that the normal Oregon weather will return eventually. When it does the workshop committee should be putting forth opportunities for spending a Saturday inside learning some valuable aspect of horological interest. If you have ideas for the team or a need to learn, contact Terry White, Mike Robinson of Stephen Nelson.
More of you are actively involved in the workings of our club than I can recall from the past--thanks to each of you. Specifically, I want to acknowledge "webmaster Rod" for his excellent work in maintaining this website--please take a moment to check the various tabs in this Newsletter. Rod has assembles an impressive bibliography of time related topics from history items to parts stores and more. Thanks Rod Lloyd!!!
If you were not aware, we have a new Hero among us. Diane Drake let me know that Paul is doing fine in his recovery from kidney surgery. You need to know Paul didn't need the surgery, he volunteered to give one of his kidneys to a friend whose kidneys were failing. Both are recovering as you read this. Way to go Paul!!. (could be a pun there someplace) We wish you congratulations and a speedy recovery--you still have a job to do when Diane says you are up to it.
