Historic Interest Pieces in Past Newsletters

Submitted by Roy Wagner on October 21, 2017 - 10:11 pm

This table provides a list of programs and articles that have appeared in past newsletters. The goal is too keep track of historic interest pieces so that they are not repeated, or at least not too close together.

Went through Membership and Presidents Message folders. Need to resume with the newsletters folder and then to the individual programs folders.
