2014 New Orleans Reunion

REPORT

Huge Success 

Before I start posting pictures from the reunion (which I will be doing everyday this week) I want to take the time to thank someone whose efforts made it possible for all of us to have the great time that we did. Mary Tucker is my choice for MVP of the 2014 reunion. I can not even tell you the extent of her efforts over the past year working on putting this reunion together. She went above and beyond all of our expectations to make sure we all had a good time. I am sure that all in attendance would agree with me.

Mary, Thank You so much.
