18th Annual Ship's Company Reunion

Who's Came

Fort Mitchell Loves The Navy!

With the precision of a Refueling At Sea evolution, the 18th Annual Ship's Company Reunion earned a rating of 4.0 by those attending.  The weather was cooperative presenting seasonal, but not unreasonable, temperatures and few showers except for Saturday.  Fortunately, we had no outside activities that day.

The Drawbridge Inn is a mature facility with some rooms having less-than-generous space.  Nevertheless the entire complex was clean and the staff could easily be rated as the very best we've experienced. The Hospitality Room however, was large and easily accommodated everyone without being cramped.  This was also true of the roomy ballroom where the banquet buffet was held.

At the banquet, soloist Cathy Maxwell provided a touching performance of the Navy Hymn while Inspirational Speaker Gary Griesser had the crowd on their feet singing along with some of our country's favorite traditional patriotic songs.  While they weren't singing, many were doubled over in laughter at Gary's humor.

Of special note were Bobby and Angela of McHale's who insured every detail of the event right down to the placement of the very last fork.  High praise to the staff for making the Kentucky experience so enjoyable.

The tours went well and were enjoyed by all.  Modern Economics: One couple went to the Hollywood Casino.  She lost $100.  He won $140 so she spent $200 at the Annual Auction. Incidentally, Auctioneer Jim Carroll did a great job and at the same time set a record income for the auction.

Host Dick Koeniger and his sidekick Cathy Buell did an outstanding job in making this reunion a wonderful and successful reunion for our shipmates.  Kudos to them for all the time, effort and hard work!
