steamboating colleagues,
David Tschiggfrie, stellar writer/editor of the S&D REFLECTOR, contacted me several days ago reporting that he has the September issue of S&D REFLECTOR finalized and in the hands of our publisher early for printing and mailing. This to get more information into the hands of those planning on attending the annual meeting of Sons & Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen weekend of Sept. 14-15 in Marietta, Ohio based at the Lafayette Hotel. There will be other venues that weekend needing your reservations returned by Sept. 7th. [See your June REFLECTOR issue with data and yellow reservation sheet requiring your attention]. Capt. Clarke 'Doc' Hawley our slated banquet speaker on Saturday evening that should again be a winner.
