Message from our 2013 Chairman

We enjoyed hosting the 2013 reunion in Canton Ohio in September.

The welcome reception hosted by the Canton Convention Visitors Bureau and The McKinley Grand was great. Local Artist Sam Sutton made personal Caricatures drawings of those in attendance.

On Monday, Our trip to Amish country included a trip to the new David Warther Museum along with a family style lunch at Dutch Valley.
That evening "The Canton Cabaret" presented "Thanks for the Memories" A Journey Back to Bob Hope and the USO !" Music and comedy that filled the evening with enjoyment & old memories !

On Tuesday ten members of our armed forces, Navy and Marines were in attendance for our Memorial service at Veterans Park. Steve Johnson played Amazing Grace on the Bag pipes and a local VFW member played taps for our service . A breakfast at Canton Woman's Club and a visit to the McKinley museum rounded out the morning. Tours of Harry London and free chocolate samples were a favorite of many along with a trip to Maps Museum.

Wednesday many toured the Pro Football Hall of Fame .In the evening we enjoyed Tailgate theme party hosted at the hotel.

Thursday, our ladies were treated to a tour of The National First Ladies Library and a Champagne Brunch at the Canton Women's Club . Jim Window was our auctioneer for our annual auction . Many interesting and unique items were up for auction along with expected humor that Jim brings to the event.

Our final evening at the hotel ended with a dinner show "Shades of Time" ,featuring music from the past including the Blues brothers and Sonny & Cher.

We would like to Thank the many members who volunteered their time and talents in helping us host this amazing reunion . We received many donations of food and auction items, for this we are grateful.
