|Members- Preparations for
the 26th Marine Association 2014 Charleston, South Carolina Reunion
are finished. Our 2013 St. Louis, Missouri reunion was
another super success. We had great attendance and continued reaching our goal in regards to leaving each year's reunion
with the next year's reunion determined, as well as three sites selected for the following reunion in 2015. Those cities will
be Salt Lake City, Utah, Denver, Colorado and Seattle, Washington. Be
thinking about these three cities in preparation for a vote at the 2014 Annual Meeting.|
The reunion dates will be Thursday, September 18, through
Sunday September 21, 2014. A contract has been signed with the hotel and our
website www.26thMarines.com , has been updated.
Will be Thursday
through Sunday during the first weekend of September 18, 19, 20, and 21, 2014.
We have added an extra day this year as we did when we went to
San Diego. We will have our landing party on Thursday night the18th and caravan down to Parris Island
Friday the 19th, to attend a boot camp graduation on Friday. New information will be
posted as it develops.
check our site www.26thMarines.com, often for updates as they may occur.

the sooner we have a firm count, reservations made, etc., the more smoothly things flow after that. |
Please note, the membership at 2013's reunion Annual Meeting,
voted to "forgive" all back dues for anyone in arrears on dues. However, the rule
of 2006 (see below) is still in affect. Since all records have been brought to zero balance, please pay your dues
in a timely fashion.
notice is being emailed to those members of record during 2013 only. If you do not need a hard copy, please
let Sonny know today. Hard copies will be mailed out to those needing them. |
|Of course if you don’t need the hard copy, it will save our
organization costs of paper, envelopes, postage, etc. |
|Please feel free to copy this notice and give or send to anyone you know who may be interested in our
Association. If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of us. |
