It was reported that the Society has not received a response from the GGNRA. It was reported that a letter, dated February 2, 2013 was sent to Ms. Ewing-Haley as an inquiry, yet no response was received from that letter as well. The President will attempt to make telephone contact to determine what the current status is, if any. The Society still wants to pursue the installation of informative signs at the mini-IFC at SF-88.

From inquiries made by the Secretary the Everglades National Park is interested in obtaining the missile for HM-69. Contact information was supplied the park and follow-ups will be made.
