DIGGERS, 966 AEW&C Sq, Det 1 552nd AEW&C Wg, reunion was held in
the Orlando, FL area 18-20 October 2002
AEW&C GOLD DIGGERS
Well gang, this is our first official communication since the reunion.
Phil and I thank each of you for attending. Also we would like to
thank those who have sent e mails, cards and letter thanking us for doing
this reunion. Be advised that it was our pleasure. Thanks to all who
attended the reunion and made it a very memorable one (and that's an
understatement)! For those who weren't able to make it, sorry you couldn't
attend and hopefully you'll be able to make the next one.
Many of you flew or drove many miles to attend and that proves this
reunion was long overdue. We appreciate the people who volunteered to be
on the next reunion planning committee for another Station 50 get together
in 2004. Anyone who's interested in volunteering their expertise in
assisting Phil and I, please e mail us so we can put together a
"formal" reunion committee.
I have completed the roster and will get it run off next week and send it
out. I did not include those who were contacted by Tom Carstensen, Hugh
Harris, Phil and myself and did not answer our communications. We sent
e-mails, letters and left messages on the answering machines so to me that
was indication they didn't want any thing to do with us so screw them.
It is evident to me that it will take about 3 tries before this roster is
correct. Some of you hit the hospitality room be fore you made any
notations on the roster or you are all doctors, I had my crypto guy try to
decipher what was written and did the best I could.
What I would like you to do is make any correction to the roster and ADD
any one you think would be worthy of associating with us at the next
reunion, now planned for October 2004, in the Orlando area, return your
corrections and additions to me (Jim).
To make the roster complete we would like the roster to show:
WIFE'S, GIRLFRIEND OR WHO EVER NAME
If you feel that you do not want to provide any of the info that's ok with
us. We will not give the roster to any person who is not listed.
In addition, we will take orders for T-Shirts, Hats and Coins, we have to
order the Hats and T-Shirts but have the coins on hand. T-Shirts are
$12.00, Hats $10.00 and Coins $8.00, all plus postage. It will take a
month or so before the T-Shirts and hats are ready for mailing.
We would like to form an official association with dues of $10.00 per year
and would like your comments.
JIM and PHIL
P.S. To all those who contributed extra $$$ to help defray expense; many,
many THANKS. Also kudos to COORS for the adult beverages and reunion
