Virginia Beach  1995


 Our Chaplain E. B. Smith was Chairman for the 89th Squadron’s 6 reunion, April 26-29, 1995 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Virginia Beach, Va. We had a large hospitality room where we could have both registration and refreshments. 90 people registered. Thursday morning began with a Mess Tent breakfast, followed by tours to Yorktown and Williamsburg or to Virginia Beach, Norfolk Amphibious Base and downtown Norfolk. Nine golfers headed by Pete Palmos went to Eagle Haven Golf Course.

On Friday, we toured the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk, had lunch at Waterside and visited Nauticus. Some stayed for the Norfolk Azalea Festival Parade that evening.

Saturday morning, E. B. led us in the Squadron Memorial Service, followed by the business meeting which was conducted by President John Dugan. An air show at the Norfolk Naval Air Station was the afternoon activity. Saturday evening, we enjoyed the Squadron Banquet and the speakers, our own Dr. Bob Reed and Judge Bill Fones.

Sunday morning we said goodbye and began to look forward to Galveston 1996.
