Gilford Old Home Day
Roger Landry has collected $350 from members and others to help defray the Old Home Day expenses. With any luck we will not pay out for supplies. The sign-up sheet is out there for the August event.

Warren Mitchell reports that is was so cold coming back from the interclub to Berlin that Sr. member Roger Ballantyne couldn't talk. Joining them on the trip were Dick Breton and Paul Cotton. The next interclub will be to the York club, York Harbor Inn, Thursday, August 15.

Gilford Old Home Day
Roger Landry still could use some names on the sign-up sheet for the August event and needs members to turn in the money for their pledges.

Where's My Supplement?
Editor Chet Cilley and this writer are working everyday on our commemorative addition to The Citizen. Steve Loughlin, Phil Bonafide, and Kathy Calvin have agreed to do the proofing.

Steve Loughlin read a thank-you note from Robert Corriveau who received one of our scholarships and is majoring in Business Administration at U.N.H.

The Suggestion Box
Sr. Member Ed Chertok recommends that we consider giving two votes on whether to do the motorcycle raffle again to anyone who brings a nonmember to the roadshows. He would also like to see fines raised to bring them more in line with the 21st Century.

Sr. Member Ed Chertok makes a couple of modest proposals.

Guest Speaker
This writer introduced publisher/investigative reporter Wayne Green to the club. Green's teenage interest in amateur radio led to his being and electronics technician on a submarine during WWII, and into publishing an amateur radio magazine, which he is still doing, over 40 years later. He continues to publish books and magazines which have helped turn technologies such as cell phones, personal computers, and compact disks into huge new industries. His most recent publication is New Hampshire To Do magazine whose purpose is to help double our $9.4 billion state tourism industry by keeping readers informed about the variety of recreational options available. To date the 23,000 copies that go out each month are the highest initial circulation in N.H. His publishing company has no official headquarters and encourages unsolicited submissions of material. For more information on Wayne Green, his works and crusades, go to www.waynegreen.com or www.nhtodo.com.

Our guest speaker makes his own record.
