Here is hopping that all is well in these days of overreaction and scare mongers on the flat screen every day. All is well in the Miovas house, thanks for asking. Also hopping that by the time this issue reaches you this mess will be coming to an end and things are getting back to some sort of NORMAL! Anyway, because we did not have a reunion this year the following is a breakdown on our association.


Membership = 374 broken down as follows:

                     Life members = 319

                     Dues paying members = 55

February 2020 175 of our members receive the Aerograph by mail. Cost of printing and mailing   over the last 4 issues =  $2352.00. 

(REMINDER IF YOUR ADDRESS CHANGES PLEASE SEND ME YOUR NEW ADDRESS SO YOU CAN CONTINUE TO RECEIVE YOUR COPY OF THE AEROGRAPH)   CHECK YOUR DUES DATE

Well the holidays are behind us for another year. The new year has not been nice to some of us! For me, I have lost three of my friends in less than a month of this new year. But with that said Mary Ann and I are doing well and looking forward to the upcoming reunion. We are eager to see a lot of our shipmates. For us the reunions are always a highlight and a reassurance that for some of us the seas may be a little rough but we are navigating them just fine. Let us pray that the remainder of 2020 treats us with a little less pain.


Now for less of me and some information on the finances of NWSA. We are in good shape and looking good for the next five years at least. As you have heard a thousand times if you are receiving the Aerograph by snail mail and you have a computer with an email address, you could help us stay afloat for more than five years, simply by receiving the Aerograph via email. All you need to do is send me an email requesting email Aerographs. Now let me also say, I know more than a few of us do not like computers and do not know how to use them. Then there are some of us that just like to hold the Aerograph in our hands while reading it. In that case stay with snail mail because that is what you are paying dues for. A few extra denaro in your renewal is another way to help stay afloat.

Thank you for listing to my rambling and once again hoping to see you in Georgia.

The last few months have been a little quiet for the S/T desk.  Few inquiries and only a few membership renewals.  Financially speaking we are in good shape and membership is holding steady.  Look for a complete breakdown in the November "B" listing.  On a personal note been getting a few things done on the house, not that it needed to be done, not much.  Put the RV in the caves for the winter and now getting ready for a long winters nap, sounds like that somewhere before.  Before we know the holiday, season will be upon us.  Hoping that all have a great Thanksgiving, a Very Merry Christmas, and a safe and Happy New Year.

Ahoy shipmates! I am hoping that you are having a great summer. Not a lot has changed from my last report. Financially speaking, we are in good shape as you can see from the financial report. There is one addition fund that was added to our check book, Reunion Fund. This fund was created with a donation from the closing of POTOMAC CHAPTER, Gary Cox, and the 45th reunion committee. This fund will be used for reunion seed money and any unforeseen cost by the reunion. The seed money must be paid back by the reunion committee to the reunion fund. The payment for unforeseen cost must be approved by NWSA board.
