Newsletter #28 - SEPTEMBER 2001
There is important info in this issue of the Pelican Post!
First of all, please take a look at the information on the San Diego Reunion 2002. For those of you on the west side of the Mississippi, we are finally having a Reunion on the West Coast. For those of you on the east side of the big river, here is a great opportunity to revisit San Diego - it is probably a long time since you have been there. Now, take advantage of the reduced rate for hotel room (if you find a cheaper room it will not be as nice as the one we have waiting for you) and partake in the special events of the famous Fleet Week, a very special time that only happens once a year in San Diego.
Members of JAX voted to have the next Reunion only at a city with "Navy Presence." You will find NO city with more Navy presence any time of the year, but throw in Fleet Week and you come away from the Reunion full of pride in your Navy.
As you reead on to other info on the Reunion 2002, you will find that we have a commitment for at least 100 rooms. I hope that we exceed this number but, to insure that the Reunion is financial viable, I urge you to help out by making a long range commitment by planning to attend and hold to that decision. I am sure that you will not be disappointed!
