6. New Business

No reunion proposal for 2022 was available to be presented.  Warren said we are always welcome to join then Amphibious Ships Reunion group.  They have around 80 people from several ships and are meeting right now in Annapolis. He believes they will meet in Colorado Springs next year.  Everyone seemed to prefer trying to keep just our group going.

Claire mentioned we might meet at the Grand Canyon.  Dale suggested we could just meet at an agreed upon hotel somewhere and once there informally plan any activities. Warren proposed a four to seven day west coast cruise and will look into that possibility.

  Our goal is to have a few proposals in our Fall Newsletter due out November 15.  A Zoom meeting will be held on December 15 to make a final choice.  

7. Member Recognition

  Dale presented a flag/plaque to Warren Gammeter, in appreciation, for his longtime service to our organization.
