Default *March, 2014 REFLECTOR Arrived*

Dear Steamboating colleagues:
While working on the Big Sandy Wharfboat this afternoon, our dedicated post delivery man came down the hill and up in the office smiling. "Here, boys, your boat magazines arrived." And what a beauty this edition is by the hand of our talented, skilled Editor, David Tschiggfrie. How he does it I know not. From the front cover shot of the ISLAND MAID steaming up to CONEY to the back photo of the SPRAGUE there are steamboats and more steamboats with many related features. One fine Indexing of early steamboats by Prof. Jack White. 'Final Crossings' features a very lenghy obituary for Virginia Bennett written by Vic Canfield. Barb Hameister has crafted a touching tribute to Patricia 'Pat' Traynor. In 'Small Stacks' master model builder John Fryant gives us a 'peek' outside and in of his cute Str. THOMAS A. EDISON.

*~Please note*~ also the 'insert' letter regarding reservations for the grand 75th Aniversary of S&D this coming weekend of September 12th and 13th and the fun-packed motor coach tour with luncheon to Clarington with lunch at the beautiful home of Taylor Abbott's grandmother. Barbara Rush and the Ohio River Museum hosting this event. And that's not all planned as you will see.

*Those of you not yet members of S&D of Pioneer Rivermen or those not yet sending in your annual dues, remit your statement to S&D Secretary, Sharon Reynolds - 1002 Oakland Drive, Paragould, Arkansas 72450-4812. 'Reminder post cards' have also been mailed.

So, sit back, kick up and enjoy this great REFLECTOR edition. That's what ole Commodore Fred Laidley, Capt. Ellis Mace and I have been doing this afternoon at the Big Sandy Wharfboat.
