Thanks to everyone who helped me with the Reunion!! A great success to say the least. We had 81 members show up and 139 members and guests at the dinner at Capt. Georges. Looking forward to another one, and hope we can get more there.

I'm looking forward to another reunion already.  It was a blast. Thanks again Bob for all of your effort you've contributed into this monumental event. Lets all stay in touch and make an effort to meet more often.  We're not getting younger.

Had a great time at the reunion! What a great job by RC for putting this together, and for those who helped out! Wish we had more from my years('78-'82), but really enjoyed listening to all the stories from the 60's crowd. Will hold great memories!

A big salute to RC for putting in all the hours to make the reunion a success. The weather was a bummer, but we can't have it all, I guess. It was great to see the old shipmates. Sad that there weren't more present.

It was a blast! Have to change the old saying. " It was real and it was fun, but this was real fun!"
