This is a private meeting, which means that only Balli family members can attend. The meeting is important because it will be the last time anyone will have an opportunity to submit pictures of old photographs, marriage certificates; letters or any item you might think would be of interest, to put in the book Rene Escobar is writing. At the meeting we will review some of the work and research Rene has completed.

Discussions about the attorney search and the current attorneys involved in all Balli land grant issues will also be conducted. A meal head count is required, so please purchase your tickets early.

Respectfully yours,

Fred B. Balli
