In the October issue of the Canal Record, the Society
placed several notices reminding the membership that dues
for 2008 were due before December 31, 2007. These advance
notices seem to be working well for our members. Instead of
waiting for the Christmas season, when we are all busy with
holiday planning, members are starting to send in their mem-
bership dues in October for the following year.
Please remember that if you are planning to attend the
2008 Reunion you must pay your 2008 membership dues
BEFORE sending in your Reunion Registration paperwork.
If for some reason you forget to pay your dues, and send in
the Reunion paperwork, your Reunion paperwork will be
delayed until we receive your 2008 membership dues.
The Society office will be closed during the Christmas
holiday season from Tuesday, December 18, 2007 through
Tuesday, January 1, 2008. We will reopen for business on

News this time is that my sister
Freda Flenniken Stohrer has moved to
Rogers and I'm very excited with her
living near us. She bought a home and
says that this is her last move. The next
time the kids will have to move her. At
Betty Dunning the time of the move I flew up to Ohio,
worked for a week helping Freda pack, and drove back to
Arkansas with her and her two cats. That was great fun--real-
ly it was, especially when 15 pounds of black fur decided to
ride in my lap, meowing right in my ear!!
More fun when Carol Flenniken Schwenke came out to
Arkansas to help Freda unpack. Freda says it sure is easier
when you have two sisters and a niece (Lynn Dunning
Harp) and her family helping unload and put things away. So
now Freda and the cats are settling in nicely and enjoying
Arkansas' warm weather.
Gretta Vowell, Freda, and I went to Fayetteville and had
lunch with Mary Condon. Freda and Mary had both taught
English at Cristobal High School so they did a lot of remi-
niscing. While we were there, Mary took us down to visit
Carl Maedl who greeted us with a big grin. We all enjoyed
his mementos of CHS, especially the Tiger Mola.

Hola everyone from out
West. It was a great summer and
fall is here and the nights are
getting cooler, unless you are in
Panama that is. Had a surprise
Isaac and Helen Hay visit a few days ago from Jan
Cazden (BHS'66) who was vis-
ting nearby. She called on her cell phone and said she was a
nere quarter mile from us and was in our driveway within
Annual Episcopalian Clergy Conference of the California
Diocese. The retreat was held on 300 acres in the rolling hills
of wine country. She said the focus of the event was on mil-
lennium development goals, particularly the environment.
There was a chart that showed where each country in the
world ranked on a scale indicating the usage of global
resources. Of course the U.S. was way over the top and little
Panama was the only country smack dab in the middle of the
chart. I suspect the simple folks in the Interior gave Panama
the edge that offset the urban usage. As Jan sat on our sofa,
our six Chihuahuas gathered all around her and she wasn't
bothered. She said another topic of the conference was about
creation and that of course included the Chihuahua critters.
Wish all our guests were that tolerant!
Jan Cazden and some of the Chihuahuas
Jan works as a hospital chaplain in San Francisco. She
recently went in to bless a woman who was going to surgery.
The handsome orderly transporter who came in noted her
mola shirt under her lab coat and got excited, announcing he
was from Panama. She says she has over 30 mola shirts and
wears them to work all the time. She gave him an announce-
ment to the Los Gatos picnic and we shall see if he shows up
After Isaac got home from work and visited with Jan, we
bid her adieu as she headed off to visit her friends in
Sebastopol, then home to San Francisco. She will miss the
picnic because she will be officiating at a memorial service
for those who have died from A.L.S.
Lew French (BHS'63) reports that he and his son Dave
French were in San Francisco visiting from Texas. They met
up with Roger Kat (BHS'63) and all three had a good time
at Fisherman's Wharf. Roger and Lew have been good
friends since elementary school.

The Colonel H. M. "Bud" West Chapter of the Air Force
Association (AFA) led by President John E. Schmidt, Jr.,
CMSGT, USAF (Ret.), was awarded the Most Outstanding
(Medium Size) Chapter in the United States at the recent
National Convention in Washington, D.C. John and his
Chapter were also awarded their 15th straight Gold
Community Partner Award which recognizes the Chapter's
membership of local business leaders. The Chapter again
claimed the prestigious Membership Ribbon for its continued
success in gaining and maintaining local membership. John
has been a member of the AFA since his early days in the U.S.
Air Force and has maintained his participation and leadership
in AFA for over 50 years. Since moving more permanently to
Tallahassee in 1981 he has been at the executive leadership
level of the local, state, and national organization and
although serving on the National Enlisted Council in 1974
and 1975 was significant, he feels this year's winning of the
highest level award for the local Chapter has more meaning

John (Bill to many of his friends and family) started his
Air Force career at Albrook AFB in April 1951 and continued
for the next thirty years in active duty around the nation with
overseas service in Vietnam in 1967-68. John had the good
fortune to return for a tour back at Albrook in 1973 serving at
the Inter-American Air Forces Academy. His career ended
with his tour at Tyndall AFB (Panama City, Fla.) in May 1981
as the Base Sergeant Major. He then retired to Tallahassee
and continued his Air Force skills as the Aerospace Science
instructorr in the Air Force Junior ROTC program at Godby
High School for the next fifteen years, retiring again in 1996.
His five children and 12 grandchildren in Tallahassee and
Colorado Springs, Colo., are part of his daily life and activi-
ties as well as keeping up with classmates (BHS'50) and

course of those 19 years, Sister Frances has guided many of
our children in their religious education from K-6, Jr. High,

Vicki Sizemore sends in more news this issue: "In April
friends gathered at the restaurant in Rio Mar to celebrate fond
memories and say farewell to the historical establishment.
The area has been sold and will be turned into condos start-
ing at $330,000 per condo. Rio Mar was constructed in 1949.
In the 1960s Rio Mar was at its peak and quickly became
known as the top surf spot in Panama. Large surf competi-
tions were held along with great parties. Attending the
farewell party was Tomas Miro, considered the Father of
Surfing in Panama, and veteran surfers Rupert Turner and
Scott Williams. Tomas Miro first surfed Rio Mar on a ply-
wood board in the '50s. In 1962 he made the switch to fiber-
glass after observing a board made of the material. Tomas and
his brother Ruben along with Zonian surfers, Rupert Turner
and Scott Williams, were to set the standard by which many
surfers would follow. It was Scott Williams who gave the
toast at the farewell party. Many memories were shared and
stories were told during the bittersweet celebration. While
development has devoured this cherished place, if you go
down to the beach when the surf is up you can still catch

I always appreciate receiving the Canal Record, although

mew. The year 1932 when the Society was started was the
iear I moved to the Canal Zone. I went through grade school
mn Balboa Road, Junior High, High School and Junior
College in Balboa. Then I worked a year for the Personnel
Division under Major Bennett under Ed Doolan for a year
beforee returning to the States to finish college. The 1947 pic-

ime that included a picture of me and some classmates, so I
appreciate that. I wonder how many of them keep in touch.

ZONIAN DIRT RIDERS
The Zonian Dirt Riders were at it again over the Labor
Day weekend heading to Durhamtown Plantation located in
Union Point, Ga. Durhamtown is a sportman's resort offering
hunting, fishing and off-road motorcycle and 4-wheeler
adventures. What makes this place exciting is ever-changing
riding challenges from open trails to tight narrow and techni-
cal trails. Best of all, the trails are well marked and one-way!
The ZDRs have visited this excellent riding location several
times, and plans are to head back next Labor Day weekend in
2008. Any other off-road Zonians who would like to join us,

MUSEUM ADOPTS NEW
VISION AND MISSION
At a two-day retreat in September the Panama Canal
Museum's Board of Trustees focused on many issues
affecting the future of the museum. From this close
look at where we are and where we want to be as an
organization, a new Vision and Mission were devel-
oped for the museum:
"To achieve national and international recognition as
the foremost source of historical information uniquely
dedicated to documentation of the United States'
participation in the history of Panama,"
"The Mission of the Panama Canal Museum is to
document, interpret, and articulate the role played by
the United States in the history of Panama, with
emphasis on the construction, operation, mainte-
nance and defense of the Panama Canal and the
contributions to its success by people of all nationali-
Extending our previous, narrower mission of preserv-
ing the American Era of the Panama Canal to include
all aspects of U.S. history in Panama will enable us to
reach out to a broader constituency in order to meet
our long-term goals and objectives.
We hope you will increase your support of the
museum as we increase the scope of the museum.
Volunteers, members, and donors will be the corner-
stone to this next step in the museum's development.
MUSEUM PRESENTED WITH PANAMA BOOK
Dra. Angeles Ramos Baquero, Executive Director of
the Museo Del Canal Interoceanic de Panama, recently
presented the museum with a copy of Patrimonio
Grafico de Panama en Coleccion Charles Muller/Panama
Graphic Heritage in the Charles Muller Collection.
Museum Director Elizabeth Neily accepted the beauti-
ful hardbound collection of period postcards and
articles on behalf of the museum. The book is a welcome

MUSEUM NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
We welcome new volunteers, Frank Scruggs, who is
assisting with accessioning items donated to the museum,
and Judy McCullough, who is updating our mailing list
and is looking forward to joining our Speakers Bureau.
The museum relies heavily on volunteers for its continued
operation and support. Perhaps you have a few hours a
week to spare and would like to contribute some time to
helping the museum. For instance we are looking for:
Chairperson(s) and committee members for Theodore
Roosevelt's 150th Birthday events
Coffee Club Clatch program coordinator for the third
Saturday morning of the month
Someone to photograph items in our collection
Accessions assistants to catalogue donations to the museum
Speakers Bureau presenters to offer programs about the
Panama Canal in your community
Writers, photographers, and artists for articles for the
Teachers to help with lesson plan activities for the
"Panama Canal Museum in a Trunk"
Membership coordinators all over the country
If you are interested in volunteering, please call Director
Elizabeth Neily at 727-394-9338.
VISIT FLORIDA GRANT
The museum was recently awarded an Advertising
Assistance Grant from Visit Florida to produce 50,000
full-color rack cards. Lynley Weade of Creative Graph-
ics and Joey Zornes, PCM Marketing and Communica-
tions Chair, are coordinating the brochure design with
Elizabeth Neily. They are also working on a new
Museum logo design and slogan.
PLANS BEGIN FOR THE 2008 REUNION

an activity that introduced the history of the Panama
Canal through an art project.
They had a lot of fun with "Build a Panama Canal Float"
that not only introduced the history of the Panama
Canal but also tied the lesson to Tampa's very first
Gasparilla Festival in 1910. The festival theme was dedi-
cated to the building of the canal. Nellie Engelke and
Gerry DeTore presented the workshop. In addition,
Kathy Egolf and William Puckett helped to develop
the lesson plans.

EYEGLASS COLLECTION REPORT
Could it be that we've managed to clear out all the
drawers and closets and old handbags of all the PCS mem-
bers? I think not!! Our annual report shows that during
2007 we collected 94 pairs of eyeglasses and lenses from
only 14 donors in Alabama, California, Florida, Michigan,
Not our best effort, but it does raise our total to 2,432
since we began this project in 1992. That represents 2,432
fortunate individuals in Latin America who we will never
meet but who can see better thanks to your generosity.
Now we're reaching for the 3,000 mark. When we hit
it, that lucky member will be rewarded with a one-year
PCS membership renewal and a mention in the Canal
Record. Will it be you???
