BREAKFAST CLUB 2018 SCHEDULE
We closed out the year with quite an interesting schedule of speakers, covering topics related to the NM legislature, investments, guardianship, cyber security, diabetes, western movies made in NM, and more. Attendance has been increasing (thank you!—and there is always room for more), and EVERYONE is invited. You do not have to be military. If you think a young person would be interested in any of the subject, feel bring to bring them (age 12 and over, please).
The Breakfast Club takes a break over November and December, and resumes in January. We have a great line-up of guest speakers again, and hope you can manage to sacrifice sleeping-in by coming to our programs. There are no dues, no database, no reservations required—JUST SHOW UP.
The Breakfast Club meets at 0730 (and ends at 0900) on the LAST Tuesday of the month at Weck’s Restaurant on Louisiana, a half block south of Montgomery. Your bill is individual, and you just add your tip. There is even a 10 percent senior discount.
Here is the schedule the first half of the year, January through May:
January 30 – Dave Coulie, ABQ MOAA Chapter’s Legislative Liaison. Dave will bring us up to date on what is (or is not) happening in the Round House, on relative to the military. This is always a very well-attended and timely program (for the annual legislative session), so arrive early.
February 27 – Shelly L. Fritz, DDS. February is National Dental Month: Her topic is: “Dental Health after 65.”
March 27 – Rose Marie Kern, author and former air traffic controller: Her topic is: “Air Traffic Control: Behind the Scenes –What You Don’t Know is Scary!” She is a popular aviation writer, and also talks about her Oshkosh experiences, too. Website: www.rosemariekern.com) She will have her latest book, Air to Ground, available for sale.
April 24 – George Richmond, board member for the League of Women Voters: He will talk about the history of the non-partisan LWV, local operations, and the Voter Guide.
May 29 – Loretta Hall, author: Loretta’s books have won awards, as she has become an in-demand speaker on “space” subjects, of which New Mexico has played a long role in its history. Her topic is: “New Mexico’s Contributions to Space Travel” — a history from 1930 to the present (largely about Holloman AFB and White Sands Proving Ground/Missile Range.)
BREAKFAST CLUB – SOMETHING NEW IN 2018
The Breakfast Club will be trying something new in 2018. Remember when you had to give a book report in school? Well, if you forgot what that experience was like, forget no more. In October 2018—actually, starting a bit before then—you can choose a book from a list of military books or choose your own book. Read it, and then tell the rest of us what it was about.
A list of 24 titles was given to attendees at the October meeting, and already people are making their selections. You have nearly a year to read the book (surely, you can do that, right?), write up a short report that you can read, and present it to the group. No need to stand in front of the room, either. ALL the books can be found in the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Library System. So you do not even have to spend a dime to get a book.
If you would like a copy of the book list, please email Marsha Thole at [firstname.lastname@example.org] and she will send you the list; it is in Word. For those who already have the list, please email your selection to Marsha by January.
