The Park Service celebrated their 100 year anniversary in August which was very well attended by the public as well as by our officers Al Kellogg, Ron Parshall and Ron Jacobs. They all said that SF88 looked very good. Al had given 40 hats for volunteers to Al Blank to hand out and they were well received.
Al Kellogg has been in touch with Al Blank at SF88 to convey his willingness to redo the welcome sign that was vandalized and place it inside the gate by the guard shack.
The NHS picnic was a success with a nice day, good food and positive feedback for our society. The picnic is now being billed as an “annual event” published in the LENS, by Andrew Felton, Supervisory Park Ranger-Marin Headlands; this is positive feedback from the headlands newsletter.
Postcards were delivered to the Visitor Center and our invoice was paid. We also made $764 in this quarter with new memberships and merchandise from the NHS store. We now have 647 members.
Al Kellogg is going to research hats to sell in the NHS store for the Nike and Ajax missiles. He will send his drawing to the officers for a final vote.
