I am asking everyone who plans on attending this years reunion to PLEASE make your Reservations now. If you haven’t sent in you money for the meals PLEASE do so now. You can pre-date your checks to July 15th. However, if you have not made your reservations and your payment has not been received by July 15th a spot on one of the buses may not be available. We have not determined whether we will have two or three buses. Carol will make that determination on August 1st. The buses cost $1250.00 each. If she decides we only need two buses that is what she will order. She will not be able to ask for another one once she signs the contract so the count Carol has on August 1st will determine the number of buses required.

Carol is working on “Box Lunches” for our trip to Washington DC. We realize that many of our Troopers are finding it harder and harder to walk any distance. Those of you who have walkers or wheel chairs bring them along and we will see that to are taken from one ceremony area to another. If we can get the box lunches we will collect the money ( not Credit Cards) when you sign in. The cost of the box lunches will be 10.00 per person. That includes $2.00 tip per person for the bus drivers. The box lunches will consist of small Turkey, cheese, lettuce, and tomato on a sub roll. A bag of chips and a bag of cookies and a bottle of water will also be included. ANYONE desiring not to get a box lunch MUST let us know by July 15th. There are no other places to buy a lunch.

We are asking everyone to bring at least 1 item to be placed on a Raffle table. We will need the funds to help make down payments for next year.

God Bless,
