Coupon Books
The Michigan Club is again handling South Alabama coupon books as a convenience for the Club members. When you purchase a book you are helping the Gulf Shores High School Jr. Navy ROTC program. They are the group that presents the colors at our first Club meeting each year. The price this year is still $15 and you pay for the books when you pick them up. If you would like for us to reserve a book(s) for you please send an email to: or to: In the email please give (1) your name, (2) the number of books you are requesting, (3) when you plan to arrive in Alabama, and (4) a way to contact you in Alabama – a telephone number and/or an email address. Item 4 is important because last year we had arrival dates for people but they hadn’t picked up their books by that date and we had no way to find out why. If you have questions please call Charlie Arensmeier at 517-230-3524.
