The NE Chapter meets every two months at the Ft Meade Club at Ft Meade, MD and with each meeting we have a special theme. All are welcomed to come and participate in our activities. The NE Chapter calendar includes:
San Francisco Bay Area :President Frank Moser (415} 587-7387
I received your e mail about the web site and asking about dates of our
meetings etc. I called our sect to send me the future dates since we
have changed some of them this year. Our last date was June 9th when we had a BBQ at Gene and Ann Powers home in Clayton which is across the Bay. Pictures were taken and names will be attached for an Agent or web site report.
Our group is shrinking with many in poor health. Joe Kurata is still
active and makes the luncheons when ever possible. I think we had five
or six deaths this last year and half but we still have fifteen to
twenty attending our four meetings during the year.
Thank you for the web site address and we will be sending it to all our
members who have e mail.

The January 2009 meeting was held Friday, 23 January, at the Country Kitchen Restaurant, Highway 92, Sierra Vista, AZ. Tom Williams, SAIC, opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance at 11:50AM.
The meeting room was alive with conversation and humor throughout the luncheon. There was a sense of excitement as old friends met, and greetings were exchanged. You could feel the excitement in the room. “Great!”
TAPS: Bradley Vaughan, author, dedicated family member, and former intelligence officer, passed away on 20 December 2008. Bradley had contributed several of his books to the SACICA as well as donating to the postage fund. He will be missed by all.
SICK CALL: Margaret Nichols is currently in a Rehab Center in Palo Alto, California. Margaret took a fall while visiting her daughter over the Xmas holidays. She hopes to be out of the hospital soon and will return home to Tucson; Bud Strom is pending a hip replacement surgery soon. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our sick and shut-in members. We wish you well and hope to see you back at our meetings soon.
DISCUSSION: Declining attendance at the meetings of various retired military organizations is forcing the disbandment of several of the groups. Age is a key factor, also the loss of many members. Our organization is also being effected as our attendance levels fall. We will continue as long as there is a desire and a willingness to attend our monthly meetings.
Each attendee introduced themselves and provided a brief history of their military background.
ELECTION OF OFFICERS: Ray Betts has volunteered to take over the leadership of the SACICA. His wife, Sharon, will assume the duties of secretary/treasurer. Conrad McCormick will continue as the Deputy SAIC. Tom Williams will act as a consultant and adviser to the organization during the transition.
The door prize “From Babel to Dragomans” Interpreting the Middle East, written by Bernard Lewis, was won by Sharon Betts. Sharon, we hope you enjoy the book.
We collected $33.00 for the postage stamp fund. Thank you for your generosity and continued support. A special thanks to Duval Edwards for his generous donation.
Attendees at the October meeting were: Conrad & Sally McCormick; George & Verle Hackenyos; Wilfred & Marcelle Toczko; Dorothy Dietz; Kate Schmidli; Ann Lee; Jack Drummond; Joan Strom; Ray & Sharon Betts; Marty Matin; and Tom & Carolyn Williams.

Space Coast: President Ursula Aamodt, FL (321} 254-4335
The Florida Space Coast Chapter
By Ursula Aamodt, Chapter President
The Florida Space Coast Chapter.
The Space Coast Chapter met July 12, for our annual patriotic, red, white and blue Luncheon. The meeting was held at the Indian River Colony Club.
All the decorations were made by Ruth Kaufmann.
The 22 members included four members, from the Orlando Chapter.
After one hour of visiting and Cocktails, Ursula opened the meeting.
After the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Paul ILL, and the Invocation, given by Ivan Calderon, Ursula welcomed all members.
After a scrumptious lunch, of either Oriental Chicken Salad , or Tenderloin Beef Tips, followed by Ice Cream Sundaes, we got down to the usual short business meeting.
A few of our members could not join us, because of illness, or other commitments. The rest of us had a fun time.
The beautiful table decorations were raffled off, and six lucky winners took them home. We also raffled off two very nice door prizes. One, a artfully crafted patriotic basket, and a beautiful Cosmetic basket. Luckily, it was won by a lady, Lillian Banks.
We still had five mystery gifts to raffle off, and, of course, the ever so popular, 10 bags of precious gifts, prepared by Paul Ill, and Janet Hudson.
Janet also was the Photographer for the day.
Ursula read a poem " Our Flag", and we all joined her in singing, "America the Beautiful".
We closed the meeting, after listening to a couple of fun stories, and jokes.
GULF COAST CHAPTER
President Dick Snyder 813.634.4489
[b]As to the Gulf Coast Chapter, we are alive, and happy to announce six new members as a result of our magazine notices for the Reunion. We had a poor showing for our Christmas Party in Dec, but those who did attend, were treated to an outstanding slide show on "The Horn of Africa", by our member Leigh Meiser, employed by Central Command. Leigh is a retired Marine LTC, and the son of Ed Meiser. Our next meeting is tentatively set for 1230 hours, Saturday, 24 April, at the Beach Club at MacDill AF Base, Tampa, and will be our annual election of Officers meeting.
Our Chapter has over 60 members on our roster, but we are lucky to get 15-20 to a meeting because of distance from anywhere we have the meeting. Tampa Bay is more or less the central point, but it is over a 2 hour drive from members in Center of State, and about a 2 and 1/2 hour drive from Gainesville in the North and the same from Naples in the South. If folks come from the Space Coast Chapter, it is a good 3 and 1/2 hour drive. I try to make most of their meetings by staying overnight there, and intend to make their meeting on 31 March.
Washington State: President, Jim Boyden (360} 613.0454
The quarterly meeting of the ACICV Washington Chapter will be held on Sunday, June 10, 2007 in the Rainier Room of the Cascade Community Center, Ft. Lewis. This is in the former Officers Club building. The meeting will start at 10:00AM with the brunch, followed by a short business meeting and then fun and games by our Spassundspielmeister Al Overacker.
