Hello fellow shipmates and friends,
In six short months we will be
gathering together again! Time flies and our Reunion will be upon us
We are all hoping for a return to normalcy and being able to fellowship
again. Nashville awaits us!
Remember to plug in these dates to your calendars:
Friday, May 14, 2021—Early-bird check in to be ready for
the Saturday festivities
Saturday, May 15, 2021— General Jackson Showboat River
Cruise and Luncheon with a Show
Sunday, May 16, 2021—Official opening of the 2021 Reunion
with an open-house Hospitality Room
smiles, laughter, photos, memorabilia, and snacks.
Monday, May 17, 2021—Tour of The Hermitage, Andrew
Jackson’s Home which will feature our
Memorial to our shipmates who are no longer with us.
Tuesday, May 18, 2021—Annual meeting, free time for
exploration, and the Closing Banquet
We’ll be staying at the Inn at Opryland, a beautiful
Hotel. The registration form will be in the February Edition of this
newsletter and it will include all of the details.
Oddly enough, our church has planned a trip to
Nashville for this November, and their cost far exceeds the cost of our
Reunion plan. The deals that were extended to us by the businesses in
Nashville were wonderful.
We have had a long time to anticipate this trip. I
pray that nothing interferes with our plans in 2021. Marcy and I really
miss seeing all of you. We hope to meet some new members this May, too.
Our Association is a special group of people and I am proud to be a part
Happy and Blessed holidays to all of you. God Bless!
