Hello Shipmates and Righthanders,
What a fun reunion, always a joy to see so many of the sailors attend with families. Texas was hot, but didn't stop us from going on great tours - Texas Book Store, where Kennedy was shot, and George W. Bush library, so many things to see. Relaxing days, and shopping of course. Ha! Our UBER drivers delivered us to Texas and back to Iow0)a safely and soundly. Ready for next reunion in New Mexico. Thank you Marilyn and family for a great week. And truly happy to have 4 members from the USS Epping Forest join up with us, and hopefully we will have more join us next year. Celebrated Ralph Fries birthday (80). Cake and all. Now preparing for the No 1 entertainment at the Iowa State Fair for 10 days, we have been recognized as the top spot in USA. Take care.
Les and Janet

Hello Navy folks:
Very Hot and dry in Iowa, we are hoping for a little rain. Been watering the garden every other day, so we can have BLT's. Ha!
Our UBER drivers will escort us to Texas come early Saturday am, we will be staying one night with our daughter Lori's friends, that lived above them in Chicago, many years ago.
We are looking forward to the reunion and seeing many of you once again. Always a joy to catch up with family and meet some new folks that hopefully will come to the Navy reunion.
See you all soon.
Janet and Les

The May 2017 Newsletters were taken to the post office this past Friday (5/19) for mailing so you should be receiving them hopefully this coming week. Unfortunately bulk mailing is synonymous to snail mail. I will be sending out pdf's via email this evening.

Hi everyone! I have received several calls regarding the guaranteed seating deadline of May 1 that I had placed on the reunion registration form. This is the same statement that was on the Lafayette reunion registration form. It does not mean that you cannot register or come if you do not have the form to me by May 1. I do apologize if anyone has mistaken this as a cut off date for reunion attendance. We will have plenty of room on the buses and if need be we will get another bus. We want all to come. I have taken the statement out of the next newsletter which is now complete and will be sent out by end of next week. Look forward to seeing everyone.
