Since closing the book on our final gathering, we haven't just sat idly doing nothing. Several small gatherings have taken place. President Bob Steinauer and his wife
Barb recently spent a great deal of time back east and down south visiting various members and according to his report, they had a wonderful time. During their
stop in the Philadelphia area, the Ethel Hargrove Memorial Bell was presented to the survivors of Bob and Ethel for which they expressed their gratitude. They were
able to spend some time with several of our "Shut Ins" who haven't been able to attend reunions. Not to be outdone, John Foster and Nancy Brink made a trip to
the west coast, stopping in Lincoln, NE for dinner and a visit with Gordon and Connie French. In California, they met with Dan and Trish Neuenschwander and
Bud and Mary Ann Santos and again, toured the area with them and of course took part in those great meals California offers. Visits to the USS Iowa and the
Grand Canyon were highlight of their round trip. Nancy, daughter of Delbert and LaVerne Johnson said to be sure to pass on greetings from LaVerne. Delbert was
one of the founders of the Reunion Assn, the others being David Neuenschwander and Richard Duncan waaaay back in 1995. Following the return of the
Steinauers, Gordon and Connie French attended the Knights of Columbus Bazaar in Steinauer,NE a small Nebraska community founded by Bob's Grandfather.
Always an enjoyable evening, the food prepared by the local ladies and their fellas was again fantastic.
A sad note seems to raise its head more often these days as the number of shipmates and their spouses who are crossing that "Gangplank of Life" for the last time is
rapidly increasing. Though saddened by the loss of our shipmates, we rejoice in the fact that we have shared many, many wonderful experiences over the past 20
years as well as the brotherhood of war and service aboard the Enoree as young men. We do so appreciate Gaye Cline-Schooler, the daughter of David Cline
taking the reins of the editorship of the Enoree Tidings and acting as the news hub. If you have questions or information to share, contact her at the E-Mail address

Since typing the above some time ago, I have overcome the obstacles created when YAHOO changed this program to Aabaco and I was unable to update and
post these changes. However, after numerous failures, exchange of correspondence with the host and finally writing a "Snail Mail" letter to the parent company, I
was contacted by the Tech reps and have been able to download the proper components. Thanks for your patience, I really appreciate it.
