Well the holiday season is over. The older I get, the longer the season seems to last. Hopefully all had a joyous and fun holiday season. Pat and I are just about done cleaning up from having family and friends here to celebrate the season. We are also working on the final details for the USS Goldsborough Association 2020 reunion to be held October 4-8 in Buffalo New York at the Millenium Hotel. We will be getting registration information out as soon as we get everything finalized. We are planning on taking a boat trip on the historic Erie Canal followed by lunch. We will then go to Niagara Falls for a tour around the area and another boat trip on the Maid of the Mist for an up-close look at the falls. Tuesday will begin with a Memorial service on the USS Little Rock at the Buffalo Naval & Military Park. We will have a little time following the service to tour the ships there or visit the canal side area. Then, on to the Village of East Aurora to visit some shops and a stop at the Made in America Store for a light lunch and shopping. We will try to tour some of Buffalos interesting landmarks and architecture on the way back to the hotel. Wednesday will be a free day to do as you please, see more of the Naval Park ships, maybe a little gambling, or more shopping. There is also many wineries in the area if you are interested. Thursday will be annual meeting in the morning with some more free time till the banquet and auction Thursday night. The hospitality room will be open when we are in port for sea stories and beverages.
So get your calendar out and plan on joining your shipmates for another great reunion.
