Have you ever served aboard the USS Hugh Purvis - DD709? If so, we would like to have you become a member of the Hugh Purvis Reunion Association (aka HPRA). The HPRA provides a directory of your shipmates, plans the annual reunion to interesting places with great tours, the annual business meeting and the formal dinner. The reunions are for members and their spouse or significant other, or you can just come alone and still have a great time. You will make new friends or see some old ones. Membership is just $20 a year. Also, an age dependent lifetime membership is available (see the membership information link above). The value for our dues is one of the best for reunion associations.
Have a look through your Shipmate Directory, checking the "INACTIVE" section. Some previously active members have landed there for varying reasons, the primary one; not being up-to-date with their dues. They just need to pay their dues, either the regular amount or the Lifetime graduated amount (see the Membership link above). Reception of his dues will result in immediate reinstatement to ACTIVE status. An up-to-date electronic version of the directory is available on the DD709 Yahoo Group, or you can use the "...contact..." link at the bottom of the page to get a copy. If you are shown to be an active member, you will receive one via email.
