LATEST UPDATE FROM THE REUNION COMMITTEE 4/15/22

Plans for the 2022 Alexander Hamilton crew reunion complete! Our coordinators have done a good job of putting together the agenda for a great reunion.

BELOW IS A COVER LETTER FOR THE EVENT!

Based on feedback received, the Registration Forms below can be used to pick your activities. To make it as easy as possible for everyone fill out and return, the cover letter is first and the registration form has been created in 3 different formats.

ADOBE pdf COVER LETTER CLICK HERE, ADOBE pdf “fillable” REGISTRATION CLICK HERE Fill it out and email it to Clutch Koogler,

ADOBE pdf “non-fillable” REGISTRATION CLICK HERE,

EXCEL spreadsheet REGISTRATION CLICK HERE Fill it out and email it to Clutch Koogler,



ADOBE pdf “fillable” is the most convenient.: You can download the pdf, fill in the blanks using your computer/keyboard, save the filled-in copy, and send it back to the committee members by email. The other 2 might require more labor-intensive methods including print, manual fill in with pen/pencil, scan back into your computer, and email. Or, in the case of EXCEL, that you have the necessary MS Office license or are an experienced "Open Office" user.

THE STRAIGHT SKINNY ON YOUR ASSOCIATION DUES

The Reunion Association would like to make sure we all understand the importance of the Alexander Hamilton Association dues. If your name is highlighted on the crew list page, your dues are paid up. As in the past the cost per crewmember is $20.00 total for both years. This will provide us up front money for the next reunion, mailing costs, etc. Membership also gives shipmates a vote in any decisions that will be made with regard to the Association. Please send your dues $$ to Jim Koogler's address above. We thank you for your continued support.

LEST WE FORGET......THE BELL TOLLING CEREMONY WILL BE PART OF EACH REUNION TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE:
