Dealey News and Updates

22 January 2019
The Newport Dealeys reunion committee met by conference call and began discussions and planning for the September reunion. Don Shields (USS Lester) will host the reunion as Chairman, assisted by Mark Priest and Charles Lawing also of the USS Lester.
The committee's next meeting will take place in April where reunion details will be further refined in cooperation with our reunion coordinator Gathering Plus of Branson MO.
We anticipate that the reunion notices will go out to all shipmates on our mailing list in early June. If you are interested in attending and haven't been contacted by email by July contact Marc Arsenault  at Marc-a@charter.net or Tel 508 248 5072
