The business meeting succeeded in electing new officers and selecting a reunion site for 2009. The new officers for 2007 – 2009 are:
President: Dick Haglund
Co-VPs: Gary Spees and Rick Salas
Treasurer/Secretary: Reisse Perrin
Chaplin: Carson Hunt
Members asked KB Sherman to remain Web Coordinator and, in addition, asked that he also become Newsletter Editor. KB accepted.
Thanks to all for stepping up to keep the spirit of VP-1 POPS alive.
The site selected for the 2009 reunion is San Diego, CA, and will be hosted by Jim McAllister. San Diego promises to be another great location because of its warm climate, multitude of activities, and military facilities. Thanks to Jim for the proposal and willingness to take on the next re-union.
The board met after the business meeting to discuss and arrive at the goals of the next biennia. They came up with the following:
1. More frequent newsletters. This will only be accomplished with your participation. As mentioned at the business meeting, the content of your news item is limited only by your imagination. Share your vacations, retirement, kids, grandkids, volunteer activities, etc. We want to get to know each other beyond just our military experience. Send your information to KB Sherman, 89 Adams Road, North Grafton, MA 01536; email@example.com; fax 508-519-0287, for selection for publication.
2. A new updated roster with addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses for all members.
The Branson Bash was another Navy treasure, and it was wonderful seeing all that attended.
