Hello Shipmates and Families,
Wow, where does the time go? We all know how fast time goes when we see our kids, grandkids and yes even our great grandkids.
The 2017 Reunion, number 10, will be here before you know it so please SAVE THE DATES!
The reunion will occur from JULY 25 through JULY 30, 2017. The official start date is Thursday, July 27th a mere 18471 days since VO-67 was established back on February 15, 1967. Many people like to arrive early so feel free to do the same if you want.
Members of the reunion committee were able to secure the great discounted price of just $139 per night, double occupancy.
This price is extended for 3 days before but no dates after the reunion due to the hotel's occupancy for that time frame.
The hotel is again the Crowne Plaza San Diego, which really took care of us last time.
Call this toll-free number to make your reservation and use the discount code: "VO-67 Squadron Reunion" to get the discounted price: 1 (888) 233-9527.
As always, the reunion committee will come up with some very interesting things to see and do. It will be truly a fun time.
Some things to remember; we can get a complimentary archives room and hospitality room IF we get enough rooms booked. This is important. Of course it is actually not as important as the real strong desire to make the 2017 reunion the best ever....we want you all there as it is likely that this will be the last BIG reunion!
Do you need to mark the calendar so as to keep it in your thoughts?....do it! Do you need to put a little aside along the way to save for the event?... do it! Do you need to really think hard about how much it means for us to all see our shipmates again, possibly for one last time at this final BIG reunion? ......think about it!
We really want to help anyone who may be struggling and therefore thinking they "cannot" attend.
Communication is key; if you want to go and could use a little help. Perhaps a shipmate is going alone and could share his room with you. Perhaps the association could assist you with airfare. We cannot know your needs unless you speak up.
All such communications regarding our "Get 'Em There" program are strictly confidential (contact Ralph Womack directly for this at: firstname.lastname@example.org)
During the 2015 reunion business meeting there was a lot of discussion regarding the fact that THIS MAY BE THE LAST BIG REUNION SO PLEASE SAVE THE DATE! The Association is leaning towards perhaps doing cruises in the future.
