Text Box: 2005 Spring/Summer Show

This year’s Spring/Summer Show promises to be another good one.  We are pleased to hear good things about our shows from our   vendors, members and show patrons.  We also have been told that  after our last few shows there have been good reviews of our shows on militaria based chat rooms on the internet.  Speaking of the  internet, a few years ago when the internet was still in its infancy, there was a great fear that the internet auctions and web sites would replace the military collectors shows.  That’s still a possibility, but  our club and shows continue to grow in spite of the lauded internet.  Why?  Well, in my humble opinion it is from the personal contact and interaction clubs and shows provide.  Over the past 30 odd years our club has existed, I’ve made friends that are as close to me as family.  And I know many of you feel the same.  Speaking of our members, Charlie Suggs had heart surgery in January and subsequent food poisoning.  Charlie is doing much better but would still appreciate our prayers.  On a very sad note, longtime member Mike Lester passed away on January 28.  We’ll miss you, Mike.
