Branson Reunion by Dick Stader MMCM USN Retired


 Greetings shipmates and for those of you who are new to our organization this is my annual reminder to all Hands that the time is drawing near for our reunion and so far the response has not been great and our chairman Dan Douglas is getting concerned as the REUNION ACTIVITY PACKAGE reservation need to be in by 11 August 2015 with a 50 % deposit and final payment due by 15 September 2015. In case you forgot or missed it, we are having the reunion this year in Branson, Missouri at the Grand Plaza Hotel and the cost of the rooms per night is $90.00 plus tax and available 3 days prior to and 3 days after the reunion based on availability. Dan along with Pam Brown of Gatherings Plus,  have a real good Activity package scheduled and as always we will have an enjoyable time in Branson, so come on shipmates get on the ball and get those reservations in, and don't forget to send Dan your $25.00 per person for the hospitalilty room.       
Best regards to all.
Dick Stader"
