September Breakfast recap:

Thank you all who were able to attend the September Colorado AFTAC Alumni on the 13th, we had 42 in attendance, a great number. MSgt Don Brown from Det 46 deserves a big kudos for his attendance along with the other two new members, Bill Yohman, visiting from Texas, and Frank Barbosa and his wife Jeanne. Introducing them and their joining our membership was a highlight of the meeting. Passing the hat at the breakfast helped collect $155 which tops last year by a few dollars. These donations will go directly to fund our activities and are the primary source for the Active Duty Awards we give out each year. Thank you for your generosity.
