this is the hottest start to a summer I have seen but

and let us know when and where.
Joan and I will be attending several meetings during the
next few months and will report about them to you in the
next issue of
Enjoy the rest of the summer.

whose broad stripes and bright stars
thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were
so gallantly streaming?
and the rocket's red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof thru the night that our
flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled
banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and
the home of the brave?
