IT IS A POSSIBILITY THAT SOME OF THE FOOD COST COULD GO UP SLIGHTLY as I am putting this out a year in advance. We have been assured that it won’t but let’s be flexible.
There is no requirement that you have dinner with the rest of us. However. Out of respect for your Brothers, please attend the ceremony to honor our Troopers who went to Vietnam during 1967.
****** Charlie Troop will pay for the Buses for all Troopers and their spouses. Over the past five years, our members who participated in Raffles, Silent Auctions and other Fund Raising events have donated to this endeavor. Also, those who have made donations to our Charlie Troop Funds, like John Craig who donates $100.00 or more every year but has never made a reunion.
