USS Belle Grove Logbook

Hello friends,
It is a beautiful day in Iowa, three rainbows as I was walking this early am. They are so beautiful.
Now then, this is our situation: The Trautmans are unable to host the reunion in Ohio in 2016, because of illness, first, and second availability of hotels.
If you or know of somebody that would like to host for 2016, please let the officers or our president Fred Reck know ASAP, as plans need to be started and made for the next reunion after Portland.
Thank you and enjoy the rest of the summer, and hope to see many of you in Portland in July.

Sad news..We've lost another great man from the USS Belle Grove LSD2 World War II crew. Jim Finn passed away April 25th. He'd had stroke in January 2015, seemed to be making a recovery and the developed pneumonia, collapsed lung and congestive heart failure. I can't remember Jim's rating. I've talked with Pam ..Jim was cremated and service will be later. For those who want to write Pam. her address is Mrs. Jim Finn 15 Balboa Lane Hot Springs Village, Ar. 71909 her e-mail address finnskigal@sudden link.net With heavy heart I pass this message to you. Jim will be missed by many. Donna Larson

Only 3 months until the Portland reunion. There are plenty of events planned and I know it will be fun for all. Looking forward to seeing all you sailors and right handers.

Greetings from the Fox Valley of Wisconsin...
I hope this note finds everyone well.
Just a note to let you all know that Ginny Zobel wishes everyone a very happy Spring after a long cold winter...We still keep her up to date with the Belle Grove Shipmates and Right- Handers...Recently she has accepted the assistance of Hospice at Grancare Gardens Assisted Living in Green Bay, where she has lived since the 2011. She continues to do quite well for 92 years of age, given the chronic health issues she has. I'm sure it would brighten her day to hear from some of her friends of the Mighty Belle.
Her address is:
Ginny Zobel, 1551 Dousman St., Green Bay, WI 54303

Hello Shipmates and Righthanders,
Beautiful warm weather in Iowa, Robins are bouncing about, just so nice to see sunshine and have the nice weather. Though, our winter was mild, very little snow, but cold, cold, breezy - degree weather.
Reminder to be thinking about Portland, OR reunion, many plans and neat tours, beautiful country. Next logbook will have more details for you to consider.
Our sweet lady Ms. Anita Minter, had a bad fall while in Florida during the winter, is okay now, and back home, she had to have teeth surgery, and many stitches inside and outside of her mouth. Very fortunate, no broken bones. Enclosing her address, she would welcome hearing from the shipmates and righthanders. Ms. Anita Minter, PO Box 585, Daleville, VA 24083-0585/
All in all things are good in Iowa. Les is doing pretty good and has gained back some weight, which is a good thing.
Take care and see you in Oregon

Well Maria, Portland will be ready for the gang. Lot's of event planned, and maybe we can borrow LiL Jake to draw more tickets for a real special event. Can't wait to see everyone
