Happy Holidays to all of you in the ENGLAND family! We are all very much blessed to have each other and all of the great memories ENGLAND has given us, then through to now. As we move into 2009 we have much to which to look forward, most important of those is our reunion. But, also we have Project Help A Shipmate and  the Navy Memorial Plaque Project, one shows our team work and devotion to each other and the other of dedication to the preservation of our history. Of course the best thing about all of this is all of you! Thank you for the support over the years. Please have a wonderful holiday season and the best in 2009!

2009 Reunion Dates Announced
As has been reported previously, our next reunion will be in Seattle and we now have the dates! The Seattle reunion at the Seattle Airport Marriott during the period of July 23-26, 2009. As usual there will be tours on Friday and Saturday, a welcome reception on Thursday, a fun dinner on Friday and a more formal affair on Saturday evening. Costs should be more or less consistent with past reunions and more details will come soon. We'll also need volunteers to assist with the reunion, address the attendees on Saturday evening and give the invocation. It you would like to help, please contact Dennis (dennis@obriens.net).

Please make you plans now to attend this reunion and to help plan for the next. Your shipmates are counting on seeing you there and it won't be a reunion without you! Pleas we are going to have a lot of fun! More and more details will be added to the Reunion 2009 page as they become available.

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.

Do you know of someone who could be helped by this project? Someone who would not be able to come to our reunion due to hardship but really should be with us? Please let John know. His contact information is available here.

Also, please donate today! It is easy via Pay Pal. We now need some help in identifying shipmates to bring to the reunion. If you know of a candidate, please contact John
