We have been very successful with our reunions and
attendance is wonderful. We have a fantastic group as one would expect of
members of the ENGLAND family. However, we all know there are some shipmates out there who
cannot attend the reunion due to hardship or difficult situations. These
members of our family miss out on the comradely and happiness that these
events provide. We have an opportunity to help.
At our 2007 Reunion
our shipmate John Yancy initiated an effort to help and at
the business meeting his plan was approved unanimously approved by the team!
Our goal is to bring an England shipmate to the reunion in Seattle, and possibly future reunions for others that have been unable to attend a reunion because they are not as fortunate as we are to have the resources we have available to us. Your donations to this fund will hopefully fulfill an England shipmate's dream come true, to be reunited with shipmates again.
The shipmate you help will never have to reveal that
he has received this assistance and we have agreed never to ask who it is.
Our goal is to bring everyone together! We all know from our time on board ENGLAND that helping a shipmate is the
cornerstone to team work and maintaining our ENGLAND family.
John will be running this project from stem to stern.
Dennis O'Brien has access to view the account for oversight. John will be
providing periodic updates as to the status of the fund raising
efforts. If you've any question contact John or Dennis, or post them in the
Deck Log and we'll discuss them.
