President's Quarterly Report

Spring 2013

AHOY Shipmate! 

Welcome to the Glacier spring newsletter. The first order of business is to apologize to my shipmates who had their Glacier jacket order returned to them unfilled. The company no longer wants to fill orders one at a time. It was too time consuming to get set up, just to fill one order. Have faith, for I have been working with a local company to see if they can do our jackets. If they can fill our orders this will work out much better for us. They are located only a few miles from my house. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Enclosed is your reunion packet for our get together in Providence, RI Oct 2-6. Make sure you have everything filled out properly for the day trips you would like to take. You will also need to do this for your choice of meals. Enclosed is a hotel form to book your reservations. If you would like, you can call the Crown Plaza Hotel direct at (401) 732-6000 to reserve your room. Make sure to mention the USS Glacier reunion meeting for the special price.
As you can see by our itinerary, we have a very busy schedule to keep (especially for Friday the day we go to Boston.) It will be a long day but I am sure it will be worth going back to the homeport of the Mighty “G”. We will also be going onboard the USS Constitution for a short tour. Then it is off to Quincy Market and some lunch on our own.

For those of you who were not at the last reunion, we decided not to have a buffet on Friday night. Instead it was voted in at our business meeting to have a pizza night. This way we can try something different and also save some money for you. I think it will go over quite well. We will have the pizza in our hospitality room.

Our roster list keeps getting shorter every year and the down-to-sea list longer. How many more years we keep going is up to you and the rest of our shipmates. As your president, I will be here to the very end as long as you let me. The memories of the Glacier must be passed on to our children and grandchildren so the legend lives on.

I look forward to seeing all of you this fall at the reunion. This year is special, as it will be twenty years since the USS Glacier Association had its’ first reunion in 1993. Please try to be there for this special occasion.
