ANNAPOLIS REUNION 2024 - IS COMPLETE

This is a short sample - much more to come as photos come in.

    The 2024 reunion in Annapolis, MD ran from June 10-13, 2024. We do believe everyone attending had a great time. Our stay was at the DoubleTree by Hilton and was a fine choice. Ease access and nice facilities. There were multiple highlights with the main three on Wed. June 12. This included a visit to the Naval Academy and our Memorial Service at the grave site of Hugh Purvis. Both highlights were enhanced by the attendance of 3 generations of the Hugh Purvis family. Hugh Purvis's Great Grandson Terry and wife Beth also attended our annual dinner on Wed. evening.
