Dear S&D colleagues,
Our trusty, friendly U.S. Mail person just dropped off the much-anticipated S&D REFLECTOR for December, 2015 and what a beauty it is from front cover of the photo enhanced LEE LINE STEAMER 'GEORGIA LEE' to the now pristine Str. W.P. SNYDER snapped from the river at the Ohio River Museum, Marietta.

This issue, the wondrous work of REFLECTOR Chief Editor, David Tschiggfrie, filled with goodies from the menu of various 'Columns' to main 'Features': 'A Cuban Adventure on the Isle of Pines' by Capt. Clarke C. 'Doc' Hawley. Full report with photos on the '76th Annual S&D Meeting' by Editor Tschiggfrie. 'Lee Line Steamers Part 4' by James R. Lee, Sr. 'Covington, Ky. Steamboats' by S&D V.P. Vic Canfield. [Yes, a whole different world of steamboats existed just across the Ohio in Covington from the Cincinnati Public Landing crowded with steamboats]. 'Steamer JBS Update' in words and photos. 'DQ Announces new Kimmswick HQ' in text and photos and much, much more for the holiday season reading.

REFLECTOR deliveries may vary with your own local post office with 3rd Class postage rate--similar to other magazines, journals, publicatons. 'Richardson Printing,' Marietta, Ohio, mails all out together promptly once tucked in envelopes, stickered and sealed. Good reading and Cheers!
