      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

Right now the reunion is not looking very promising, for as of today, only one other guest (a family of three or four) besides Lorraine and I (we're sharing a room), have booked for the Oct dates. While I realize that everyone has until Sept 11th to register, it's making me a bit nervous. While the reunion won't be cancelled (there is a high cost for doing so at this time), we are still hopeful that we will get a decent turn-out.

However, we have run into a first time problem...Captain John Fallon won't be attending this year, and unfortunately, the funding for past events, will not be at our disposal this year. No registration fees were charged for the last several reunions, but I'm afraid that won't be feasible this year, so talks are in the works to determine how much we would have to charge in order to pay for food and refreshments in the hospitality suite.

If you are attending, could you please let me know, so we can get an idea of how many people might be there in Oct.

Thanks so much,

Dear attendees:
 
We have been truly blessed the last several years, and haven't had to charge a registration fee for the reunions. This was due in part to generous donations from outside sources. Unfortunately this year, funds are not available to us, therefore we are kindly asking that each attending family make a donation towards the hospitality suite.

This donation can be made in advance, or given to the "seahorse sweethearts" at the hotel. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

I apologize for the lateness of this notification, but it's the only way we can keep the reunion alive. If you have any questions, please contact me.
 
Warmly,
Marion
