      Usually once a year, or when there is an occasional gap in the series of speakers, the Chapter hosts a Show & Tell.  Here, members individually may present items of interest to the Chapter's membership. These things could include original artifacts or documents, photographs, rare books, military collectibles, memorabilia, reproductions, and the like.  Most presentations are usually limited to a single item, in order to let others have a chance.  Members with larger amounts of material to present all at once do so as a scheduled speaker.
