Planning & Preparation

There is a hint of reunion in the air. A good idea, long overdue, is coming together. Enough of you have expressed interest to motivate a few of you to push this forward.

We really haven't established anything more than the possibility at this point, but it's looking like Labor Day weekend of this year in Orlando, FL, with the USSVI Annual Convention might be a real possibility.

Check here for conversation as this evolves. Look for updates through the P.O.D., Facebook groups, and the occasional Familygram.

We'll keep you posted!
