CREW REUNION 2008 HOSPITALITY SUITE
We are once again inviting sponsorship of our Hospitality Suite, for
those Mates that would like to remember a Mate, or an event in their
Jaycee life, or who cannot attend the Reunion personally, or who
simply want to help sponsor the "hospitality" part of our 72nd
Reunion. Sponsorships will be used to help defray the cost of the
Hospitality Suite, and the food and drink served there. And like at
the 71st Reunion, a list of the donors and their names will be
published in the Reunion Program. At the last Reunion we had 6
sponsors, and I am shooting to double that number for San Diego, CA
meeting. Checks should be mailed to the Ship’s Purser, Mate Dave Atkin
at 1600 Elmore Ave; Columbus OH 43224 and made out to "The Crew" with
a notation of CREW Hospitality on the bottom left hand side. So far we
have gotten $350 thus far but could use more to cover the costs of the
Hospitality Suite and food/drink. Thanks.
WE STILL NEED YOU
ATE HARRY STEWART,NOW 90 YEARS OLD, IS COMING TO THR REUNION IN
MATE HARRY called last week since he hadn't received a
LOG for awhile, and when he learned that the Crew Reunion was going to
be in San Diego, he said "If they have an airport, I'll be there". So
I promptly put him on the program.
Harry is not on the
Internet, but you can reach him at his home at 100 Edinburgh Rd, #203,
Raleigh, NC 27608, Phone: 919 787-9476
We look forward to seeing him there!
Keeper of The Log
Mate Kim Newlin has
learned that the US Jaycees September meeting is scheduled for San
Diego, California. Therefore, and for a number of reasons that most of
you know, we are changing our meeting dates from the Jaycees March
meeting slot to their September meeting times in 2008. And if it works
out favorably for THE CREW, we
will continue to meet in September.
Most of you also know that "The Hall of Leadership" Awards Luncheon
and the "TOYA Awards" ceremonies are held during the Jaycee September
meeting, giving Shipmates attending our Reunion the opportunity to
also attend one or both of those events.
