More Voyageur’s Companion Newsletters

Recently 6 more Voyageur’s Companion newsletters were scanned and copied to the RMCC website. The oldest is from 1998. They are a fun way to look at club history and see that the club has been very active through the decades. Note that personal information (addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses) have been redacted.

These are the recent additions to archive. Lots of impressive stuff.
