10 10 Finances  Club expenses have been for equipment (over head projector), presentation materials, photocopying costs and refreshments.  Club is presently several hundred dollars in the RED  Would prefer to not charge dues or to “pass the helmet”, so we have several methods to offset expenses.

11 11 Refreshments  Coffee has been free so far, but there is a cost and we will start charging $0.25 per cup when we move to Colony  Beer is available for a donation of $2 per can.

12 12 Articles Library  Articles Store at the back of the room  All articles published are available for purchase for modest fee (1 or 2 page items are free).  All articles are also available on the web site.  Any “profit” goes to offset other club costs.

13 13 Book Sale  Book Sale Table at the back of the room  All items have been donated  Proceeds will help offset cost of running the club  If you have anything to donate, contact Jim Renner or one of the other steering committee members

14 14 Raffle  We will raffle off a copy of a Don Goldstein book at each meeting. Today’s books are “Miracle at Midway” and “At Dawn We Slept”  Don will personally autograph the book for you after the meeting.  Tickets are $1 each, 3 for $2  Proceeds will help offset cost of running the club

15 15 New Book List  Previous handout identified approx 200 books  Supplemental list identified 10 excellent sources, but they may be hard to find, some were expensive and sometimes a bit hard to read.  Newest list is 15 books that are easy to find, relatively inexpensive and not too difficult to read  No list is perfect

16 16 Handouts for Today  Meeting Schedule  Movie Night Schedule  New booklist

17 17 Special Veterans Meeting - 1  November meeting will be dedicated to our WW2 vets  Vets will be given an opportunity to talk about their experiences.  All club members who are vets will be contacted in the next week or so  No one should feel any pressure to participate  Will extend the meeting duration if necessary.
