I’d like to welcome each of you to the 2018-19 year of the Santa Fe Archaeology Society. As we begin this year I hope that you will find our scheduled speakers and programs interesting and exciting. 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). As in the past, members order from the menu and pay individually for their order. Members should plan to arrive around 5:30 pm, in order to mix and have a meal before the lecture begins, uninterrupted, at 7:15 pm. A brief business meeting will be held at 7:00 pm. We are continuing our policy that non-member guests contribute voluntarily a fee of $5.00 to attend the meeting. Such fees as we receive will be used to defray any costs we incur with our programs.
