Al Kellogg and Ron Parshall met Susan Ewing and her intern at SF-88 on Thursday, April 21st, 2016 per her request for assistance/knowledge from NHS regarding artifacts at the site.  She has been able to procure 3 years funding for restoration and quality of preservation of the site from the GGNRA.  She will be in touch with NHS for preservation of items and will contact Al Kellogg again.

Al Kellogg spoke with Al Blank, curator at SF-88, getting his agreement to have a picnic on site.  It was agreed that we can have a 2016 picnic on September 3, 2016.  This information will be announced on our site by Ron Jacobs.  We will need an RSVP by August 15, 2016.  Al Kellogg, Linda Stoppoloni, Judy Kellogg and Liz Parshall will coordinate this event.

Al Kellogg also confirmed that T-Mobile accepted the Nike Historical Society to compensate him for his time at the NHS and we received our first check for $50 which was given to the treasurer.

Kristen Elford at Angel Island State Park was contacted with a quote for the Ajax decals and she will respond with a purchase order when funds are available.

Al Kellogg looked into our store carrying T-shirts and challenge coins.  Al will do the design and work with Ron Jacobs on electronic illustration formats available to send to vendors.  We will vote at our next meeting regarding these items for the NHS store.

Webmaster, Ron Jacobs, is still looking into the "About Page".  Also he will be providing a separate email address for the secretary, Judy Kellogg which will be nikesales@nikemissile.org. 

The subject of vans at Crows Landing has been resolved.  SF-88 has, in the past, received one of the BC vans from Crows Landing.  No more Nike vans are available from that site.

Our next meeting will be held on July 17, 2016 in San Ramon.

Meeting was adjourned at 11:10 a.m.
