From: Iosco Township <email@example.com> Subject: Howell G.W.Lee Civil War Roundtable Date: August 13, 2014 3:11:15 PM CDT
I am looking for an speaker for our Howell, MI, Civil War Roundtable. Someone who has a presentation prepared where the topic is artillery related.
We are in our 25th year, and meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 7:00PM, at McPherson Hospital's Community room. Our business meeting usually takes about 20-25 minutes, then a 10 minute cookie/coffee break, and it is the "speaker's" presentation. Usually goes from an hour to an hour and 1/2.
We pay mileage round trip from the speaker's home, along with dinner at a good local restaurant beforehand. We encourage speakers to bring books that they have written, are promoting, or CD/DVDs for sale at the meeting. But being an author is not a requirement. PowerPoint presentation equipment is available with advance notice.
At this point, all of our meeting dates are open. I am looking for speakers for September thru May, with the exception of December and January (which is our member driven "show 'n tell" civil war artifact meeting.).
Please contact me at my Township Hall email address if you know of someone that is interested in coming to do a presentation. Or call and leave a message with contact info on my home phone: 517-223-8928.
I have sent this out to several Michigan artillery units, hopefully one of you may know someone that is interested.
