Shipmates,

Reunion number twelve is in the books and plans are underway for the 2012 reunion in Bremerton, Washington. Shipmate Larry Nelson will make sure we get all the details once final arrangements have been made. Hopefully around mid January 2012. This year fifty shipmates and guest enjoyed a week full of tours and surprises as to what Cincinnati has to offer. From as far North as the National Air Force Museum to as far West as the Hollywood Casino, some shipmates had a very unique time. Whether it was their first professional baseball game or their first visit to a horse racing track, there was more to do in six days than time allowed. We hosted fifty five guests at our Thursday banquet and during the auction, which featured a tremendous amount of donated gifts, our shipmates again proved that their love of the Goldsborough and their commitment to this great Association was near boundless, as we raised over $3400 for our scholarship and general operating funds. Those funds have allowed us provide educational assistance for Goldy descendants and as we did again this year, to donate to many worthwhile causes in support of veterans, past and present, and the organization who champion veteran causes.

There are over 1900 photos on the web site (see above) taken by attendees to this year’s reunion and I hope you will take the time to review them and see if you see a shipmate you have not seen in thirty or forty years. Many shipmates have expressed their intention of making it to Bremerton next year and I hope many more of our shipmates decide to make the trip as well. Hope to see you there!
