Linda and Judy finished an inventory of products for the NHS store. We are adding calculators to our store at $10.00 each. The two ladies also updated the membership list. Linda organized this membership list very well in Excel so it will be easier to download and use.
Al Kellogg ordered and received more of the Nike Hercules hats. He was reimbursed by the Treasurer. We also discussed ordering T-shirts which Al will also check out. Another suggestion was to contact Moose Creek, Alaska via the Fairbanks Alaska Nike Vets website to see if there is interest in them ordering hats and reselling in Alaska. Al will check that option too.
Linda, Judy and Liz started the inventory of manuals. We are trying to match lists with GGNRA
2. Where will these books eventually end up
3. Provide our list to GGNRA but Ron Parshall will keep all his manuals
Al Blank and Al Kellogg are still discussing the blueprints for the dog yard as well as washing of the missiles when the weather is better.
Webmaster Ron Jacobs is adding an LA-29 section on the web page. He is also adding international shipping charges for shipments of hats at $12.00 currently in our store. The current shipping charge of $6 per shipment for domestic orders of hats will remain the same as before.
Lorton missile site was also discussed with Gordon Lunn and Al Kellogg. We have not yet heard from them regarding the Nike Historical Society input.
New supervisory ranger for Marin Headlands is Masaki Mizushima. Gordon also met with Andrea Steves at the Headlands Art Hostel. She and her team are proceeding with their video oral histories of the Nike veterans. They are applying for a grant from the Golden Gate National Park Conservancy for this project. In the interim NHS may be able to provide some expense money. Andrea will submit a proposal to the NHS probably at the July 1st meeting.
3rd week of May Gordon Lunn is going to Everglades National Park with Andrea and Francois to visit the Nike site and interview local Nike veterans.
Gordon will need some business cards and Judy Kellogg will provide the software for the cards.
The picnic at SF88 was discussed early so that we can send out a flyer “save the date” for Sept 1st. Al Kellogg will check that date with SF88 to make sure it is okay. We can possibly email our current membership with the information so that we can assure a bigger turnout for the picnic.
Next meeting will be on July 1st, 2018 at 11 a.m. in San Carlos.
Meeting adjourned 12:35 p.m.
