years from now you will be more disppointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the
bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
We have just completed our Newport Reunion! What a smashing success! Ron (EW1 75-79) and Anita Koshko put on a
really great event! A jam-packed event with great tours, meals, and topped off with a lovely banquet at the Officers
Club on the Newport Navy base! Our business meeting on Thursday narrowed down our 2017 reunion venue to three cities.
More to follow later on that. We also elected a few new officers. Check out the TCHVA Officers page.
This is your new Webmaster, Mark Lamboni (Ltjg 1976 - 1979). I
echo the above sentiments to say I and my wife Kathy thoroughly enjoyed our first TCH Reunion. It was a class act from
the get go, from the planning to execution, and the weather for Newport was perfect to boot! As I (well, actually "we",
as Kathy will be my principal advisor and tech assist for the web site, along with Garry who has done a remarkable job getting
this all up and running) get familiar with managing this site, I hope to get some photos (please send in low resolution) posted
of the 2015 Reunion, as well as entertain ideas from you all on anything else you'd like us to consider to improve the site.
Again, thanks to Ron Koshko and Anita for all their hard work in making the trip to Newport worthwhile. I wish more
of you could have made it, understand why it couldn't be so, but hopefully we'll see more of you at the 2017 event. Cheers!
