AS I WRITE THIS, WE ARE TAKING A BREAK FROM LOADING UP THE RENTED TRUCK. TODAY IS THE DAY I SHIP MY EXHIBIT TO THE SPRINGFIELD MUSEUM IN SPRINGFIELD MASSACHUSETTS. IT IS AN EXCITING TIME ALTHOUGH MUCH WORK IS NEEDED TO PACK AND SHIP EVERTHING. THE EXHIBIT OPENS ON JULY 1OTH AT THE MUSEUM. THE PT BOAT EXHIBIT WILL BE IN THE CONNECTICUT VALLEY HISTORICAL SECTION OF THE MUSEUM ON THE SECOND FLOOR. I WAS SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT THEY HAVE NO ELEVATOR, SO THE ENTIRE COLLECTION MUST BE BROUGHT UP THE STAIRS. GOOD THING I HAVE TWO STRONG SONS. MY DAYS OF MOVING ITEMS UP TO THE SECOND FLOOR ARE OVER. THE MUSEUM IS OPEN TUESDAY THRU SUNDAY FROM 11:00 AM UNTIL 5:00PM.

THE EXHIBIT FEATURES SOME NEW ITEMS INCLUDING NEW SCRATCH BUILT MODELS, ORIGINAL ELCO UNIFORM, JOHN BULKELEY ITEMS, MANIQUINNS, AND OTHER ITEMS. I NOTICE AS WE PACK UP THE TRUCK,THE SPACE GETS MORE AND MORE CRAMPED. THE EXHIBIT WILL BE ON LOAN TO THE MUSEUM UNTIL THE END OF FEBRUARY 2008. I AM IN HOPES THAT SOME OF YOU MIGHT TAKE THE TIME TO STOP BY IF YOU ARE EVER IN THE SPRINGFIELD MASSACHUSETTS AREA. ANOTHER NEW ITEM IS THE UNIFORM AND SILVER STAR OF LT. LEIGHTON C. WOOD, WHO WAS ON PT 124. HE DONATED THESE ITEMS AND WILL BE BRINGING HIS FAMILY TO THE EXHIBIT SOMETIME THIS SUMMER.

WELL GANG, BACK TO WORK. I HOPE TO SEE SOME OF YOU THERE. E MAIL ME ANYTIME FOR DIRECTIONS OR IF I KNOW YOU MIGHT BE THERE, I COULD MEET YOU. I WILL OF COURSE REMIND YOU AGAIN AS THE DATE OF OPENING GETS CLOSER.
