Happy Birthday, America!

Thanks to Art Szmuriga for the great flag photo!!


42% of Reunion Surveys Completed!


Our survey request went out to 160 active e-mail addresses on our list, and 67 of you have completed the questionnaire!

Of the responses so far, here are the results in answer to question #1: If you attended the Reunion in Dover on 7-8 May 2010, rate your satisfaction with the Reunion in general. 7 of the 67 who responded did not attend. 90% of those who did, said they were "Very Satisfied." 9% said they were "Satisfied."

We now have one unidentifiable respondent who checked "Very Dissatisfied" (entered on 6/28 @ 9:28 am). While I'm reporting it as checked, I am suspicious that the boxes checked were not intended. Every item rating was checked "Very Dissatisfied," but all of the comments entered on that form were positive - none negative?! For example, under the question about the Souvenir Cap, the rating was checked "Very Dissatisfied," but the comment entered was "Nice touch."

Now here are the final Reunion Photos from my collection, Photo File #7:

George McDuffy & David Abrams

Yours truly, Dick Hanson, Navigator, 1st ATS, '62-'65

BUT FEAR NOT!! I have a lot more Reunion photos to share. Thanks to Bob Maguire, who has been a very busy photographer. He provided me with three disks full of photos......not only from the last Reunion this year, but also from the 2007 and 2003 Reunions. So, STAY TUNED TO THIS BLOG!! I'll be sharing them with you a batch at a time for a couple more months.

You have done a superlative job keeping us in communication with one another. I believe your work with the site was the force behind our large attendance. Thanks, Rick

Rick, thank you for your kind & generous words. I do think the e-mail list and blog helped make the connections and raise the visibility. I think it was also good timing, at our age, to draw the appeal. I think the "mini" approach in 2011 is good, and it will be interesting to see if a "maxi" can really draw them in from all over the country again in 2012....
