This isn't the regular formatted Newsletter. We'll do one after our reunion. This is about our upcoming reunion. It's time to refresh some details and remind you all about our '04 reunion. The previous Newsletter had the particulars, but perhaps a review will be beneficial and motivate you to come join us. With the years going by like "we can't believe", each one of our reunions becomes more significant. We hope and pray that you are all holding your own and hope to see you there. Onward!

Our reunion site, the Best Western Maryland Inn, is conveniently located off I-95 at exit 33B, Maryland Route 198 West to first traffic light. Make a left hand turn on to Sweitzer Lane and the hotel will be just ahead on the left. Laurel is between Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC. Tele: (301) 776-5300. Fax:(301) 776-8164. You will have to make your own arrangements to get to the hotel if you are flying.

The reunion officially starts on Monday, 20th Sept., however as in the past, reunion priced room rates for early and late birds will be in effect. Over the past several years, a majority arrived on Sat. or Sun. to take advantage of plane fares and less traffic (driving) problems.

The room rate is $55.00/night/room plus tax. Important: Please don't forget to mention that you are with the 412th Fighter Squadron Reunion group. Also, inform them if you have special needs.

Room reservation are to be made to the Best Western by Aug 16, '04.

We will be having group buffet dinners on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd. The cost is $16.25/person/dinner plus tax & grat. = $20/person/dinner.

Dinner attendance is your option, however we encourage you to join us. If there are any special dietary needs, please advise Bill Geise.

Dinner reservations are to be made to Bill Geise by Aug 16, '04.

This year, our tour will be the War Memorials, etc., (Washington) on Tues, the 21st. Tour cost is $20/person. The tour will be approx. 6-8 hrs. We will have a Dutch treat lunch break. Mon. and Wed. will be free days for individuals' activities of choice.
