Meeting Announcement

When:  January 10th 2018

Where: La Navona, 154 North Hamilton Road. Gahanna Ohio 43230

Time:   7pm

Speaker:  You!     Annual Roundtable group discussion

Topic:  “Did James Longstreet Fail to Fulfill his duty to Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg?”

My Fellow Roundtable Members: Our next meeting is on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 7 pm at La Navona, 154 North Hamilton Road, Gahanna, Ohio 43230.  Our January meeting is the night on which we have our annual debate.  The topic for this year’s debate is “Did James Longstreet Fail to Fulfill his duty to Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg?”  Please come to the meeting ready to discuss this topic. As I have said before, no one should feel that they do not know enough about the Civil War or the Battle of Gettysburg to contribute to this discussion.  Civil War roundtables were formed as debating societies, so our annual January meeting allows us to return to our roots.  Our Roundtable members are kind and respectful, and they really like hearing everyone’s point of view.  I will present a short summary of the actions (or should I say inactions?) of General Longstreet on July 2 and 3, 1863, and then moderate the debate.

There is no new Treasurer’s Report for December, because we had no account activity,  so our finances are is as follows:

Treasurer’s Report for December 2017

Beginning checking account balance 12/1/2017 = $2,570.93

December receipts = $0

December expenses = $0

Ending checking account balance 12/31/2017 = $2,570.93

 January starts a new fiscal year for the Roundtable, so dues are once again due.  Our dues are:

Single       $25.00
Family      $35.00
Student    $15.00

We have not raised our dues for many years, and I have no plans to do so in 2018.  Please continue to support our book raffle. Once again, I will match raffle sales up to $50 if everyone at the meeting buys at least one ticket. Please make a point of getting your dues in to Dave DeLisio or me as soon as possible; don’t make me channel my debt collection attorney doppelganger!

Battlefield Tour Report:  Please save the dates of April 12, 2018 through April 15, 2018 for a trip to Chickamauga.

So I’d like to know details; i.e, cost, accommodation arrangements; and any other pertinent information. Thanks for your help, and thanks for a really interesting and informative Roundtable tonight.
