I hope you are had a great summer. We're looking forward to a great year of programs and trips.
Our programs this year, which I hope you will find to be stimulating and educational, include two speakers from the Archaeological Institute of America, one in October and one in March.
We will be meeting on the same schedule and at the same location as last year, the 3rd Tuesday of each month, in the private room at the Pecos Trail Café (2239 Old Pecos Trail).
