Our Chaplin Jim Magin
has been experiencing some rough times. He recently completed multiple courses in chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Additionally
he and Marnie have just had a personal tragedy with the recent death of Marnie’s brother. Jim is at home recovering
and indicated to me that he would like to hear from any Calhoun shipmates or friends. His phone number is 970.686.8889.

Shipmate Macon "Bucky" Clark is organizing a mini-reunion
aboard a cruise ship. It's guaranteed to be a great time for everyone. Here are more details from Bucky:
Ok, folks. I have done a ton of research with a travel planner and here is what I've come up with that I think is
the best deal and, hopefully, a trip that all will enjoy. The cruise that appears to suit our needs the most is out of Charleston
(where we all like to return when possible.) The dates are November 15 through the 20th, 2017. The cruise is five (5) days
with stops in Nassau and Freeport (8 am to 5pm) and time at sea. Cost, at least initially appears to be around $330 per person plus another $180 or so for Port Charges and taxes. Our trip planner
informs me that a $50 deposit would need to be paid by January 30, 2017, and then a couple more
payments staggered until paid in full. It appears that the more people we have going, the less the cost will be per person,
so come on. As the information gets firmed up I will post it here. Now....I NEED EMAIL ADDRESSES FROM ANYONE THAT IS INTERESTED
AND I NEED THEM YESTERDAY! Sorry for yelling but, if I don't, people will say they didn't know. Looking forward to hearing
from all that want to join us. Please tell all the Shipmates that you are in touch with to either look here or email me at:
