MESSAGE BOARD

NOTICE:  WE ARE HAVING A CLUB MEMBER OUTING HUNT ON CRYSTAL BEACH EAST OF GALVESTON ON JULY 9TH, 2016.  THE HUNT WILL BE ON THE BEACH AND EVERYONE WILL MEET UP AT THE DONUT SHOP IN CRYSTAL BEACH AT 8:00AM ON THE 9TH.  THERE ARE RV SPOTS FOR RENT ACROSS FROM THE ENTRANCE TO CRYSTAL BEACH AND POSSIBLY SOME RV'S THERE FOR RENT.  LUNCH WILL BE ON YOUR OWN BUT THE HUNT WILL LAST ALL DAY.
We had 24 in attendance for our June meeting which included three new club members.  Welcome to our new visitors and glad to have you in the club.  Our speaker for the month was Sam Mercer who spoke about a particular Civil War soldier that was the last surviving soldier that passed away in 1909.  Another interesting tidbit was that this soldier named  Henry Clay Thruston also happened to be the tallest soldier at 7 ft. 7 1/2 inches tall.  Sam brought some photos and articles about Henry who also was part of a circus.

Don't forget our club member's Silver hunt at the Smith's on the 25th of June....Come join the fun!  If you are not a member yet, you can come to the hunt and join the club prior to the hunt.  Please contact any officer for directions and time!
