Fifteen members and guests were present including Mr. and Mrs. Stefan Krasowski, who recently moved to Seattle from New Jersey. And, by chance of good timing, new member Mr. Jim Foster of Anchorage, AK was able to swing by Bellevue on his return to Anchorage from Guam. Mr. Foster gave the group a brief description of his Magellan Project, where he hopes to replicate Ferdinand’s circumnavigation 500 years later. New, local members Jim and Caroline Farrell of Bellevue were also introduced and presented with their membership certificates.
