I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and I wish you a healthy and Happy New Year!
Your organization’s Officers have been hard at work throughout the holiday season and some of our planned events are being announced in this issue.
Frank Church, Vice President and Reunion Chairman, is leading the charge on a very special event in Texas that will have occurred by the time you read this. I’ll let Frank tell you more about it in his words. Suffice to say it was a great idea and well-deserved recognition for one of our most respected and hardest-working members. Most of the schedule for our 34th reunion in Las Vegas has been firmed up and those details are in these pages also. I strongly encourage you to make your hotel reservations at the Westgate Resort & Casino immediately. Rooms are going fast, so please reserve on-line through our website link:
If you do not have internet access you can make reservations by calling the Westgate at:
Be sure to mention reservation code: SACV9R Hotel reservation deadline is August 5, 2019.
11th ACVVC Reunion registration can be made online by going to our website at: 11thcavnam.com, scroll down to “Reunion Information” then click on “Registration Form Credit Card”.
If you do not have internet access you can use the form in this issue of “Thunder Run” and mail it to our Treasurer Ollie Pickral at the address on the form.
All registrations must be received by Wednesday, July 24, 2019. Any registration received after this date will be returned. Registration refunds will be paid in full to our members if cancellation is received by the Treasurer no later than Friday, August 12, 2019.
This issue of Thunder Run was delayed slightly in order to include some last minute news. I hope you agree these front page articles were worth the wait!
