OK, guys.  Only a couple of weeks until the 2017 Reunion in Jacksonville.  Our hostess with the most-Est, has a few surprises for you. . . .Rosina has waved her magic wand and managed through her contacts to have us invited by the NAS CO to be guests in the VIP tent.  Fantastic! And that isn’t all!  We have arranged for a special guest speaker to join us on Saturday evening for our banquet.  Super!


But Friday is our busy day with a trip to NAS, a great buffet supper is in the works and our raffle night.  The raffle helps to raise funds for the reunion expenses, the website and our newsletter, The SupplyLine.  Each crewmember should bring a small prize to include in the raffle.  After our meal, we will set out our raffle items and sell 2-part tickets ($1.00 each).  Guests drop their purchased tickets in a cup by each article. We’ll draw a ticket and call the number on it.  Whoever has the match, wins the prize. So bring along something you would like to win and good luck! 


We’ll have a POD waiting for each of you so we can keep everyone on schedule.  Just know that Thursday, November 2nd is our meet & greet day so come on in, get checked into the hotel and relax visiting your shipmates.  See you all there. Fair seas. . .
