President's Letter

We are trying to schedule bus tours of Boston area historic sites on Wednesday and Thursday, August 20 and 21, 2008 as an extra-added attraction for SOC08. The tours will be from the SpringHill Suites, Devens, MA. Our hope is that families who travel to SOC08 can take an extra day and see some of our national historic venues. We will know more soon and will post information on the club website (www.saabclub.com) and on the SOC website (www.saabconvention.org).

It’s that time of year to start thinking about how you can support SCNA by joining the Board. Elections are held at the annual convention and the nominating committee is now looking for candidates. Please consider being a part of the club as an officer or general board member!
