Ahoy Buntings

The images below have been doing the rounds on facebook and it was suggested that we should bring it back to the home of communications.  Does anyone have any issue with these images?

Reunion 2015

Time is marching on and the ‘Early Bird Registrations’ for the Reunion 2015 will finish on 31 December 2014.  Only 6 months to the Reunion so come on send in your registrations. It would be great to see some of our retired Communications Officers at the Reunion as attendance in the past from this quarter has been few and far between.  I will be sending all serving Communications Officers a reminder in the New Year.

So, let me take this opportunity to wish all Communicators and their families a very Merry Christmas and all the Very Best for 2015.    Its going to be a great year…..  Frank

Well the budgets have been set and we are off, and now running down to the next Communications Reunion.  The Reunion will be held over the period 28 – 30 May 2015 in Wellington and the Petone Workingman’s Club is the venue.

Your committee and sub-committee has worked hard to keep the costs down and you will be pleased to see there has been no increase since the 2012 Reunion. Registration Forms and Programme can be selected from the Reunion 2015 tab on the Main Menu.  An early bird registration is in place so register as soon as you can.  This reunion is open to ex and serving communicators, their wives, partners and significant others.

So, if you see any ex communicators in your travels tell them about the reunion and we look forward to catching up.
