PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
This is a reminder that there will be an April General Meeting on Monday, April 15, 2019 at All Saints Church. Because this is an additional meeting, we shall need volunteers to bring food. Please contact out hospitality chair, Mary Frances Stahler,  if you can help out. Guests are always welcome; am I sexist to suggest that husbands and partners would like this program? So be it.

As I write this I realize that some of you are disappointed that we canceled the April Bridge Benefit. Besides being disappointed I hope that some of you have suggestions for a benefit for next year. We are open for suggestions and would love to hear from you. There has been a nasty flu type bug around the neighborhood and I hope all who have been ill are feeling better. I am looking forward to the April speaker and appreciate the work of our devoted program chairs, Barbara Johnson and Janet Reiche, who have planned a wonderful program for April. I want to thank Elia Mackenzie for being so upbeat, energetic, and helpful… a wonderful quality in a member-at-large and everywhere else.

I am planning our annual informal visit to HomeFront’s annual artJam show at 19 Hullfish Street in Princeton on Tuesday morning, April 9th, with lunch afterwards. Please let me know if you are interested or have questions. This event is really fun and supports such a good cause.

GENERAL MEETING
MONDAY, APRIL 15, 2019 1:00 P.M. All SAINTS EPISCOPAL CHURCH
INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS AND WAR PREPARATIONS IN 1941

Robert Ashbaugh, formerly Deputy Director of the Department of Justice, will present notes on “Intelligence Analysis and War Preparations in 1941”. We will learn how our government operated prior to one of the most seminal events in American history. He will discuss insights into the United States’ new technological marvels, radar, the electronic detector, and MAGIC, the decoded intercepts of Japanese diplomatic communications, and how the government failed, sometimes with plausible explanations, sometimes not.

In 2003 Robert Ashbaugh was recruited to join the Department of Homeland Security. Following his retirement, he and his wife moved to Princeton. For several years he served as a department guest of the Law and Public Affairs program at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.

Join us for this fascinating in-depth analysis of an infamous day in our country’s history.
