PAVE LOW REUNION 2014
UPDATE - To date, I have not received any responses for volunteers in the Hurlburt Area. If no one is willing to fill the committee positions, we will not be having a reunion next year.
For the 2014 PAVE LOW Reunion, we are seeking a Planning Committee to make decisions, and to plan and execute the reunion. Jessika Hickman has volunteered to chair the committee.
There are several sub-committees that will need to be staffed and we are asking for volunteers (see below). The Committee as a whole will vote on the dates, location, pricing, theme, etc. of the reunion. The idea is to post the information a year out in advance so that others can plan for leave, vacation time, etc. to attend.
Golf Tourney Chair: TBD
Motorcycle Ride Chair: TBD
Entertainment Chair: Jessika Hickman
Sales/souvenirs Chair: TBD
Food/Beverage Chair: TBD
Set-up/tear down: Chair: TBD
History/Memorabilia Chair: John Hickman
Registration/Payments: Vince DePersio

Reaching out to our PAVE LOW family. John Grove's legacy lives on and not just in the PAVE LOW world. John helped fund "Bless the Children", an international organization helping the poorest children of the world who are living under extreme conditions. He did this with his own retirement check! After his passing, several other caring PAVE guys stepped in to help out.
In short, we're looking for annual donations in order to provide a minimum of $2000 a month for this organization.
With your help (en mass), this is easily achievable. Some have already chipped in $100/month, but with your lump sum or recurring donation of ANY amount, we can help keep John's legacy alive by helping these children out.
- The official PAVE LOW history book is finally released!
"On A Steel Horse I Ride" written by Darrel Whitcomb can be purchased by Non-DoD/Military/Retired personnel from the Air University.
The AFSOC historian is giving some away, although I'm sure they will go fast or are already gone.
