Greetings shipmates from the land of sun, snow and rain, all in one day!  From my vantage point high on the hill of Glenshaw, it is looking like we kicked the C-19 right in the ass.  Now all we need to do is make sure the politicians get the word and keep out of our way.  Now for some facts about NWSA.  We are in good shape. We have ample funds on hand and the memberships have grown over the last three months.  We have seven (7) new members; five (5) are life members.  Our total membership is now at 364 of which 43 are dues paying and 321 are life members. 

 Current funds look like this:

It might be time to think of purchasing a new computer.
The one I am currently using is about ten (10) years old
and is getting slower by the week. I have taken it to Best
Buy for a tune up and they said it is too old to do much
with.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING ALL OF YOU AT THE REUNION
IN OCTOBER 2021. IT IS BEING HELD IN SAVANNAH, GA.

I am sitting at the keyboard of this computer trying to think of something positive to say. The only thing that comes to mind is I can’t wait for this winter to be over so I can get back on the road. Now that my right arm is back to 90% of what it should be and sitting at home for the past 7 months, it is time to get out and about, damn C19. But, then again, that is not what you are paying me for.
There is not much new to report from the S/T desk. The association is financially in good shape and I have been slightly busy with renewals. It has been too long between reunions but understandable. I for one am looking forward to our next reunion in October 2021. Seeing all our shipmates in person again will be reassuring that things are back to normal. Hope that you are all safe and in good health.

Well nothing new to report. The Miovas’ are trying to live as near as normal before C-19 and managing  well.  Mary Ann and I hope this newsletter finds all is well with you also.

 

The association financially is AOK. We now have all our funds in one bank, BoA. We have closed all CD from USAA and opened them with BoA. This makes life a bit easier for your S/T. 

CHECK YOUR DUES DATE

Crossing our fingers, toes and eyes that we will soon be able sit together in the hospital room and tell our sea stories once again. May 2021 be kinder to us than 2020 has been.

 

Looking forward to seeing all next year.

I had surgery to repair my right shoulder rotator cup on Monday, 6 July and will be unable to write anything for 6 to 10 weeks thereafter. If you renew your membership during this time period you will be receiving notification via email. When I am able to write again, I will send you your new membership card and letter at that time. Thank you for understanding. 

A quick report on the finances of our association, we are strong and should remain so for years. Our funds are currently being held with BoA except for two CDs held by USAA. The two CDs held by USAA will be closed out this September and moved to BoA, leaving us with only one bank to deal with. My job will be a bit easier at that time. 

Now for a little personal note. I am very grateful for all of the well wishes and prayer I received from you on my recent operation. It went well and I am on the mend. I am not sure what was harder the op or this sling I must wear night and day for another 4 weeks. Once again THANK YOU.
