New England Chapter Summer 2018 Meeting

By Marty Diller,
New England Chapter Secretary-Treasurer
 

The Conrad's Casual Dining chain has three sites in the greater Boston area: in Norwood, Sudbury, and Walpole. For the third summer in a row, we've met at a Conrad's site. This summer, we completed the Conrad's "hat trick" by meeting in Walpole. The buffet menu at each store features Conrad's "Famous Steak Tips" and other than their prices, we have had no complaints about their food. The Walpole store is a couple of dollars cheaper and has a bigger meeting room than the other two stores - so we know that Walpole will be a top choice for the 2019 summer meeting. We had 49 members and guests at this meeting on 23 June, including Rick Canfield (ASA, ITT (powerplant technician); DF'81-83, w/o McM 1981 and 1983; s/s DF'82) who traveled in from Shoreham, Vermont.

Chapter Business

In "unfinished business", the Chapter is still looking for a volunteer to take over the Chapter's website maintenance from Webmaster Anne Hazard. The "New business" portion of the meeting was primarily updates about ongoing items of interest to the Chapter:

(1) The son of Joe Stravinsky (EO1,USN (ret.); NSFA DF'72-74) had his bone marrow transplant but with ongoing daily treatments, Joe Jr. isn't expected to return to work before November. His online 'Go-Fund-Me' fundraiser netted about $10,000 for his healthcare needs.

(2) Member Tom Henderson has contracted with documentary distributer "Passion River" to gain nationwide sales exposure for his "Ice Eagles" DVD about the history of Antarctic aviation. Unfortunately, the contract stipulates that he can no longer sell it through his www.gwillow.com website.

(3) Secretary Diller reminded attendees about the coming 14 July deadline to submit OAEA Scholarship Award applications for the 2018-19 school year. The application form and other details are available on the OAEA website at https://oaea.net/scholarships

Fundraising

The winner of the meeting's 50/50 raffle was Mo Gibbs (USS Arneb DF-I; USS Wyandot DF-II; NSFA w/o McM, DF'67; CHCH Wx Office, DF'67-68; NSFA McM, DF'82-84). Mo's share of the raffle donations was $115. He donated all of it to the OAEA Scholarship fund.

The door prize winner Bill Highlands ( CWO4, USN (Ret.); Hallett Station (w/o 1958) DF-III,IV) won a free lunch at the next Chapter meetings he attends.

Meeting Schedule

The next OAEA-NE Chapter meeting is scheduled for 1 PM on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at the Bull N'Claw restaurant in Wells, Maine.

The Spring 2019 meeting is planned for Saturday, March 30th at the Quonset O'Club restaurant in North Kingstown, RI.
