Subject: Derry Alumni: "Did You Know..? (#3):   "Virginia Beach Mini-Reunion"


Greetings Fellow Members of the U.S. NAVCOMMSTA Londonderry Alumni Association:

Do you know about the "Mini-Reunion" being held later this year in Virginia Beach, Virginia ?

Here's the background....

It's being organized by member Len Kafer (and his lovely wife, Paula) for the group of sailors who were stationed in Derry during the late 1950's and early 1960's. But, they always invite ALL members who might wish to join them in the fun. I've attended both of their previous reunions, and they are a great bunch of guys, and they do know how to throw a great party!

The dates are Wednesday, October 18, through Saturday, October 21, 2006. The headquarter's hotel will be The Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort, at 3900 Atlantic Ave, located right on the beach.

More information regarding the cost and the various events for this Mini-Reunion will be forthcoming from Len Kafer once he arrives back here in the states in mid-June from a trip to Europe. I just wanted to give you a "heads-up" about it, so you could make early reservations if you plan on attending.

You can make your room reservations by calling the hotel (1-757-428-1711, or  1-800-315-2621), or using the Holiday Inn toll-free number: 1-800-holiday. Kafer has a group of rooms blocked, so if you mention Derry, they should give you the group rate (which is $69.00 I think, but check to be sure), though there may be cheaper rates available, like retired military ($62.00), so be sure to check that, as well, if you are eligible.

Please Note: All questions concerning this Mini-Reunion should be directed to Len Kafer at e-mail:

All the best,
Jim "Sully" Sullivan, (RM, 64-65)
Vice President, U.S. NAVCOMMSTA Londonderry Alumni Association
