We are having a t-shirt and hat design contest beginning now.  You may submit a drawing or picture of your design to me by email.  I will post them on the website where you can vote for the one that you like.  Deadline for submission of designs will be January 1, 2012.  Voting will be finished by March 30th.

T-shirts and caps will be available for purchase but we are asking that you request a t-shirt by Mid June so that we know about how many to order.  You will pay for them at the reunion.  You will not be assured of getting a t-shirt if it has not been requested.

A limited number of campsites with electricity and water are available.  There are numerous options for dry camping.  No sewer facilities are available for campers.  Those wishing to use a campsite should let us know prior to the event.

Your comments and suggestions would be appreciated.  There is still much to be done.

Our next meeting is November 5th-our fall clean-up day.  Email your comments and suggestions and I will relay them to the planners.
