REUNION 2016: "The Newsletter sent out to you in May had a Reunion Registration Form enclosed with a 'no later than' notice date of September 2.  Since this date is passed, we have extended the date to September 15 to allow those of you, (who let the date get away) send in your Registration to Tom Major.  You also need to promptly contact the hotel and reserve your room following the instructions on the Registration Form.  For you who have already sent in your Registration, please disregard this notice." President Tom Chapman: "Members, time is rapidly approaching our 18th Fighter Wing Reunion in San Antonio, Texas.  We urgently need your response.  As indicated in this newsletter, we have extended the registration date to September 15th.  Please contact the Doubletree Hotel as soon as possible to secure your room.  We are looking forward to a great time in San Antonio.  I have been advised that the Korean Dance Group will participate this year.  Again, we need your support to keep our organization alive and thriving." Finance Officer Tom Major: Thanks to the members who signed up for early registration.  We were hoping to have a much larger response but we understand people get busy.  I am hoping that this is early and more will come.  If you are not attending for any reason I would appreciate an Email or snail mail to, truckbuster@comcast.net.  Snail address Tom Major - 25 Osborne Rd - Somers Point, NJ08244, with your intention. Perhaps we can make changes that will make for a better and larger reunion. As you know all of the monies collected from the registration is used only for bills associated with the reunion. Looking forward to your response. Regards to all and your families. Secretary Clarence Frownfelter: "As your 18th Fighter Wing Association Secretary, it is very important that any changes in mailing addresses, email addresses, and deaths be reported to me so that our Master Registry  records can be updated.  Set your goal to attend this year's reunion, complete your registration form and send it in to Tom Major as soon as possible, make your Hotel Reservation and start counting the days.  Looking forward to seeing ya'all!   Clarence.  My contact information is: Phone 317-374-1774 or email frowniec@att.net. Membership Chairman Joe Tombrella:  If you would like a copy of the membership roster, email or call me and I will send a copy of the entire membership roster. My email address is joengerry@att.net and my phone number is 772 978 7854. Hostess of the Hospitality Room Judy Parker will be flying to San Antonio rather than driving this year.  This is the first time that she won't have a car with her to go shopping and pick up supplies for the hospitality room. So what she would like is, if anybody is going to be there early, on Tuesday, that has a car, if they would help with transportation to go to the stores to pick up supplies. She would prefer not to have to rent a car while she is at the reunion. She is also requesting help in getting things setup, running it, and in cleaning up at the end of Saturday night.  If anyone is able and willing to give her a hand in taking care of the hospitality room she would appreciate that very much.  Plus, in San Antonio, she would like to have the opportunity to be gone at times to do some sightseeing, go out to lunch with friends, or to dinner and not spend her entire time just being in the hospitality room. So if anybody would like to volunteer to take some shifts and give her a break she would appreciate that very much.  If not, then there will be times the hospitality room you just won't have a hostess and it will be self-serve. Comments from the Editor: I would like to thank the people who have made contributions to the 18 th  Fighter Wing Association’s website.  To view the website, or see the new contributions, go to www.18thfwa.com.  I have posted the most of the contributions and will get the rest posted soon.  To send pictures, ask questions or make comments about the website contact the Webmaster John Gearheart at john.gearheart1629@gmail.com.
