BREAKFAST CLUB 2018 SCHEDULE

We have a great line-up of guest speakers again, and hope you can manage to sacrifice sleeping-in by coming to our programs. 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).
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.

Upcoming Speakers:

April 24 – Rose Marie Kern, author, writer for aviation publications, national speaker on aviation
Topic: Air Traffic Control: Behind the Scenes and What you Don’t Know IS Scary! Rose Marie Kern has worked in all three divisions of the FAA’s Air Traffic Control, as well as for Lockheed. Over her 34-year career she won three national awards for her work with pilots and aviation computer engineers. She writes monthly columns for seven aviation publications. A member of the FAA Safety team, Rose Marie is a popular speaker for aviation groups nationwide. Her latest book is Stress is Relative, a memoir of her career with the FAA. She also has written Air to Ground, a glimpse into the cold corridor of air traffic, from a historical to current perspective, along with information for all pilots and student pilots.  Website: www.rosemariekern.com 

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.)

June 26 – Daniel H. Pennington, LCDR, USCGR (Ret):  Topic: “Everything you ever wanted to know and then some about fountain pens.” Daniel Pennington, retired USCG, has been buying, repairing, and selling fountain pens as his second career. This beautifully designed writing instrument has evolved over the centuries, and is making a comeback with those who are looking for something different. Since your grandparents are probably not around anymore, let Daniel tell you about the pens, how to use them, and what to do when something goes wrong. He will bring pens to show and discuss. He will also provide an estimate of what a pen is worth, so you are welcome to bring your fountain pens.

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 [marshaauthor@yahoo.com] 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.
