Historical Issues - 1972

First MVR Newsletter, Volume 1, No. 1
The very first newsletter, printed on computer paper, in May 1972. The original is yellowed paper, with creases and marks on it. Well, it IS over 40 years old, after all! It was composed by the first officers, as we had no editor at the time. There is a report on the first MVR event, a fun rally, and some other early events. Kind of hard to read, but that's the best we can do!
