NEXT MEETING – TUESDAY, February 14, 2023
Charlie Frates, “Valentine’s Day Ghostly Stories”
The Coronado Thunderbirds is a social club for people retired from Federal Agencies and their Contractors — including Sandia National Labs, Los Alamos National Labs, DOE, NNSA, FAA, and the Military.
Our Club monthly activities include our Member Monthly Meeting on the second Tuesday of the month (except December). These meetings are held in-person at the Mountain View Club on Kirtland Air Force Base. At our meetings you have an option to purchase lunch from available food buffets and food bars. We start with social time and lunch, followed by a Business Meeting.
After our Business Meetings, get ready for a great presentation. Our programs are chosen based on members’ interests in order to inform or entertain. Sometimes, the programs accomplish both!
- the emergence of telemedicine
- improving the environment of Albuquerque
- artificial intelligence
- the impact of Spain on the Revolutionary War
- singing and choral groups
- square dancing
- ballooning in New Mexico
- the history of Albuquerque
- railroading in New Mexico, including AT&SF 2926
- Col. Eric Felt, AFRL and US Space Force
- the movie, “Hugo,” automaton restoration
- places of interest in Albuquerque
All Coronado Thunderbirds members are required to also be members of the Mountain View Club, the Air Force Club located on Kirtland Air Force Base. As members, we are extremely privileged to access Kirtland Air Force Base. We are permitted use of recreational and meal facilities, may participate in the social activities, and receive discounts on associated costs.
We distribute a monthly newsletter and occasional updates to keep our members informed of our programs, activities, and KAFB information. The newsletter sent via email and “snail mail,” and we also maintain contact with a Calling Committee.
