Here is the description for my July 8th. program. This will be a good
way to "kick off" the NWHS Convention. Maybe you could spread the word
and some of the early arrivals might attend your chapter meeting.

"N&W/Virginian Vintage Slides" presented by Steve Hutchison.

In the 1980's Al Chione offered hundreds of slide sets for sale. If you
were on the mailing list, a multi-page hand written description of every
slide in that month's offering would show up in the mail. I bought all I
could afford at the time but not nearly as many as I wanted. The N&W
slides are from the Bill Price Collection and the Virginian slides are
from the Dave Sweetland Collection. All are from the 1950's and early
1960's. They are all good quality and cover a variety of locations.
I will also throw in some other odds and ends to keep it interesting.

Here are a couple of photos that you can run in your newsletter.

See you soon.
