Reunion 2010

2010 Reunion Cancelled

The reunion has been canceled this year. George "Buck" Lyda, our host in Hendersonville is hospitalized. The prognosis is grim.


Please make sure your contact information is up to date so you will receive information about next year's reunion to be held in Lafayette, La. You can contact me with new contact info to ensure notification of reunion 2011 details when they become available.                   


I received a hand written note in the form of a pdf file yesterday telling of changes to the reunion this year.

If you are reading this and think another 808er may not see it, please contact them so they will be up to date on reunion 2010 plans.

Here is the note I received with corrections to spelling and grammar.
