Dear Colleagues and Friends in the Chaplain Corps,

See the photos for a glimpse at our participants for the April Luncheon and Planning Meeting.  We convened at the Patton Club (formerly the Officers’ Club) at Fort Myer, Virginia for a marvelous buffet.  This was a “working lunch” for our group to take up on-going plans for the 9th Biennial Chaplain Corps Family Reunion.  Dates for the Reunion are 7 – 10 November 2018.  We will be gathering under the theme, “Always In Service.”

The DC local planning effort convened for the prayer (offered by David Hicks), a delightful meal and shared updates.  Attending were (picture 1, left to right): Donna Weddle, Jane Heaton, Wayne, Jr., Connie and Wayne Ice, David and Janice Hicks; (picture 2) Gary Dahl, Gerald Holliday, Randall Bowen, David Bowerman, Bill Jokela, Eric Wester, Jack Marcom, Susan Dahl, Phyllis Marcom, Renee Klish and Wayne Lehrer.

Regrets were offered by Kristi Pappas, Sherry and Jerry Reynolds, Jeffrey and Monika Young, Mary Pullen, Timothy Mallard, Ben and Betty Nass, Ivan Ives, Jim and Justine Roberts, Steve Moon, Benchuck Manning, Dennis Madtes and Doug Lee.

Our next meeting will be on Friday, 15 June at 1145.  Our location is a “sneak preview” of the site for the reunion:  Sheraton Pentagon City, 900 S Orme St, Arlington, VA 22204

Stay tuned for further details about our next meeting, on-going calls for volunteers and plan to register for the November Reunion!
