October 2005 NEMES Meeting

Charles River Museum of Industry

Waltham MA

The October meeting was especially well attended since word had spread that Ron Ginger would be giving a talk about his great boating adventure this past summer.  A 2100 mile journey from Ottawa Canada to his home in Boothbay Harbor Maine.  For much more information about the trip please see Ron's web pages at http://plsntcov.8m.com/
