All 26th Marines Association Members of record
From: 26th Marine Association Board of Directors "26th
Members and all 26'ers of all times, Regiment, MAU
and MEU - all battalions and supporting units :
for the 26th Marine Association 2015 Denver, Colorado area Reunion are finished.
Our 2014 Charleston, SC, reunion was another super success. Other than our normal visiting and getting together,
we made a trip to Paris Island and attended a graduation.
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 2016. Those cities will be Seattle,
Washington, Minneapolis, Minnesota and The Mount Rushmore Area. Be
thinking about these three cities/areas in preparation for a vote at the 2015 Annual Meeting.
The reunion dates will be Friday, August
21, through Sunday August 23, 2015. A contract has been signed with the hotel and our
website www.26thMarines.com , has been updated.
Reunion Focus days – Will be Friday through Sunday. No group
excursions are planned this year. New information will be posted as it develops.
Please check our site www.26thMarines.com, often, for updates as they may occur. The purpose of this letter is 2015 Reunion Notification
and request for dues and other reunion fees, banquet, registration, "friendly incoming", etc.
The fees for this 2015's reunion are
1. Annual Membership Dues $40.00 per year
2. Registration fee will be $25.00 per person,
members and each member's guest(s).
3. Banquet fee will be $45.00 per person, members and
First, the annual membership
fee is due by May 31, 2015. (Thanks to you who have
already paid!!) Make checks payable to "26th Marines Association". All payments
received after that date will incur a $10.00 per annum fee.
While the registration and banquet fees are not due until July 31, 2015, if possible, please also
submit your registration fees and banquet fees for each person attending, including you, family and friends, as soon as possible.
But again, we will accept the Registration fee and Banquet fee or changes to them, as late as July 31, 2015.
You will notice all the fees have remained the same as last year.
Remember, the sooner we have a firm count, reservations made, etc., the more smoothly things flow after that.
Please note: Since we always contract with no demands on room count, this year, reservations must be made on
or before July 20, 2015 to be guaranteed the group rate. Those made after that date may incur a higher room cost, or
no rooms available. So, if you think you will be coming, make your reservations and if an emergency occurs, you can
cancel your reservations.
Please note, the membership at 2013's reunion Annual Meeting, voted to "forgive"
all back dues for anyone in arrears on dues. This has been accomplished. 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.
This notice is being emailed to those members
of record during 2014 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.
Look forward to having another great 26th Marines
Association reunion and seeing everyone there!!
¡¡ Thanks and Semper Fi !!
