Default S&D September meeting

Since the S&D Reflector is going on two issues behind, Presdent Jeff Spear has asked me to help get the word out about the S&D September annual meeting. The meeting will be held in Marietta, OH with the Hotel Lafayette as the base of operations. This is the 70th anniversary of the Sons & Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen, and S&D wants to urge all members and visitors to attend. A special inviatation is issued to members of the Midwest Riverboat Buffs to help us celebrate S&D's 70th anniversary in Marietta!

On Friday evening, the usual reception will be held at the Hotel Lafayette. Frank Pollock will reminisce about his days at Ward Engineering Works during their transition from steam to diesel craft. Friday evening is also the time to meet friends old and new. There are usully a number of steamboat models on display, as well as books for sale and a surprise or two! A cash bar will be available Friday evening in the reception room.

Saturday morning, the annual business meeting will be conducted. All members are welcome and may vote on any business before the general membership. Each S&D chapter will also present a report on their activiteis during the year.

Lunch on Saturday will be a box lunch on the grounds of the Ohio River museum, and Madison Coal and Supply will have their steam barge in place for a whistle blow and some calliope playin'!

The Saturday evening banquet will be follwed by a presentation from former S&D president and REFLECTOR editor J.W. "Woody" Rutter, entitled "Seventy Years of S&D". It should prove to be a very interesting talk.

Dinner on Saturday will consist of a choice of one of the following, all with salad, rolls, vegetable and dessrt, tea and/or coffee:

Roast Round of Beef, au jus - $27
Lemon Chicken - $22
Grilled Salmon filets - $26

The hotel is asking folks to make their dinner reservations two weeks in advance so they can get an accurate count.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at this great autumn event!
