December was a record month with 32 sales of my cruise books on CD with several of them being purchased as Christmas gifts.
I'm pleased to announce that even though I only started setting aside a portion of each sale to be contributed to the ORA last Febuary, I will have donated a total of $285.00 for the year. I know it's not much but I figure every little bit helps.
There seems to be a little confusion with at least one Board member of the ORA. It was thought that I had help through Karen and the Oriskany Museum in putting together these CD's. This project has been done soley by myself with the help of a few other former crewmembers that donated their cruise books for the project. I have also spent over $1200.00 out of my own pocket to aquire scanned images of the remaining cruise books through the Naval Historical Foundation. I was also informed by this individual that they had never visited my website...nor has Karen of the museum.
Thanks to all that have purchased one of my cruise books on CD and I hope it's brought back many fond memories.
Here's wishing you the very best for the coming New Year!
