Group reunion in Tucson - a huge success!
Thank you to our Group reunion
organizers and volunteers! You all did a wonderful job!
The reunion and activity venues (as well as the
execution of all of those numerous, and sometimes cumbersome, tasks
necessary to create a successful event like this) were handled superbly by:
464th Bomb Group President - George Krynovich (778)
and his son, Don
464th Bomb Group Vice Pres. - Art Rawlings (778)
and his wife, Elise
464th Bomb Group Secretary - Tony Schneider (776)
Karen Boney (Daughter of one of our members)
Wynn and Rich Mancini (The Rawlings'
niece and nephew-in-law)
I would like to mention the names of some
of the others who contributed to our reunion's success in one way or another. I would
like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to:
Please forgive me if I have been so rude as to neglect mentioning you by name
in this space. Please know how very much I appreciate your effort for myself and
our Group. Sincerely, Wendy
- Beverly Stowe (aka Mom)
- For the keychains she made of beads that she had crafted by hand. And
for the beautiful pendants - also hand-crafted. She donated these items for the
Group's "Goodie" bags. Thanks, Mom.
- Robert Hoskinson (778)
- For the many CDs of data that he compiled, brought to the reunion and
distributed at no charge to those wanted them. I also wish to use this space
to recognize Bob as the co-webmaster (and my Guru) for our web site. Since
it's inception, 8 years ago, Bob has generously donated his time, effort, experience
and historical data solely for the benefit of the visitors to our 464th Bombardment
Group web site.Thank you, Bob.
- Dorcas Schneider
and Shirleyann Hubbard
- For patiently stringing all those pendants that Mom made.Thank you, ladies.
