My guess is that tomorrow the afternoon will be fine, but I feel it is better to error on the side of caution: therefore, the ICC meeting is canceled. I was notified that the county libraries will be closed. I suspect the WPB library will be closed as well.
Next month US Marine Core retired Douglas Robin Barker will be presenting a fascinating story on the Flying Tigers.
The 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Chinese Air Force in 1941–1942, famously nicknamed the Flying Tigers, was composed of pilots from the United States Army (USAAF), Navy (USN), and Marine Corps (USMC), recruited under presidential authority and commanded by Claire Lee Chennault.
I look forward to this great event. We have postponed the SpeakMandarin live tutorial until September as well.
Keep safe. I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting in September.

One of the new features of this new website is the ability to broadcast our meeting to all members whether near or far. Continue reading →
