The 2016 Paul F. Foster Association Reunion is fast approaching.  I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since the last reunion in Ventura!  This reunion will be different from previous reunions.  First, by popular vote, it’s on the East Coast for a change.  And second, it will be aboard a ship -- just not the Foster this time, but at sea aboard the Carnival Cruise Fun Ship Sensation sailing from Miami, going to Key West and Cozumel.  We will have a general member meeting the last day to take care of Association business (like about the next reunion’s location), and there will be plenty of time for even more fun!  So get ready for a fun … and sun … filled few days!  Remember, the cost of the cruise is all inclusive, including your cabin and pretty much all the food you can eat!  It’s not too late to sign up yet, so if you haven’t, do it soon!  Let’s make this cruise ship ours!  

Speaking of signing up, it’s never too late to join the Association or to renew your membership with a 25 dollar donation.  Join or renew in the Ship’s Store soon to be able to vote at the on-board Board meeting.  Raffle tickets for our fundraisers are for sale there, as well.  Before you purchase raffle tickets, please ensure that ALL of your membership information is correct in the Association’s database.  Please know that we will be using that info to ensure that your tickets will reach you, or if your ticket is drawn and you’re not present that we will be able to contact you to award the prize(s).

The Association’s Board and the reunion coordinator have been working diligently towards a successful reunion for everyone, and toward that end, we are coming up with some wonderful items to use for fundraising.  The grand prize is simply fantastic!  You saw a clue on Facebook and that same clue is here, and tickets are $10 each.  If you thought the grand prize at the last reunion was something special, I think this one is even better!!  So start buying those tickets!  We will have something special for the ladies as well … since this reunion is taking place around the Caribbean area, we will be raffling some beautiful larimar necklaces.  Larimar is the Caribbean gemstone, found only in the Dominican Republic, and is highly valued.  Tickets to win one of these necklaces are $5.00 each.  Other special items are coming and will be posted as they become available.  Hurry on over to the Ship's Store today!
