Some Sasebo Reunion Facts
Friends, no matter when they first
come into our lives, don't change because they get older and don't look the same
as in years past. What makes them friends is how "comfortable"
they make us feel whenever they are with us. That "comfort zone"
doesn't disappear over distance and time...it's what makes and keeps us
friends! Remember how we took care of each other in Sasebo? No
matter how many years have gone by since then, we haven't forgotten how
important we were to each other. If you haven't been to one of our
Reunions because you're unsure of what it will be like to see friends from so
long ago...GET OVER IT! Your friends and classmates from Sasebo have
experienced the same aging process as you and could care less what you look like
now. What matters to them is the wonderful memories and friendship you all
This will be the 10th Sasebo
Reunion. If this would your 1st, and you feel like you'd be a stranger,
that feeling will disappear after spending just a few minutes with the rest of
us. All of us once shared that feeling. Whatever apprehension you
might be feeling will disappear after getting that first hug from an old
friend. Not only will you be able to share moments and memories with
your old friends from Sasebo, but also 2 years from now, when the next Reunion
comes around, all the apprehension you might feel now will have
disappeared. Those of us that are strangers to you now will have become
Caution: At our Reunion we celebrate the memories we
shared with one another in Sasebo, and the "new" memories we've made
at past Reunions. There will be lots of laughter and even some tears
of joy...the last thing any of us want is for you to be somewhere you really
don't want to be..."party poopers" are not welcome. But, if you've often wondered "what happened to
those friends and classmates from that important time in your life", and
you don't mind spending a few days celebrating with them, then this is a moment
not to pass up.
The next Reunion won't happen until
2020. There's no guarantee that you or your friends from that special time
will be able to be there in 2020. So before you decide to come to this
Reunion or not, remember every time we postpone an opportunity, we run the risk that opportunity may never come
Everything is set to
go. We can only promise you this. It will be a moment, an event,
you will never forget! Who of you would ever have believed that a Sasebo
Reunion could ever happen? Come and join us. If we're wrong it
will have cost you only a couple of days out of your life...but, if we're correct, it
will be some of the best days ever spent, and will open the door
for future gatherings with your old and new friends from Sasebo.

Make plans to be there. "You
are the Reunion!!!" Opportunities to reconnect with
friends and add to the memories we all shared are priceless!
make your room reservations early. Please don't wait until the very last
minute as we are only able to secure the group's contracted rates for a limited
number of rooms, and for a limited amount of time.
but not least, PLEEEEAAAAASE send in your Registration Form and fees as
soon as possible, as much of our planning relies on your
completing the above assignment, go through your attic, basement, or garage and
dig out those pictures, yearbooks, and mementos from Sasebo to share with all of
us at the Reunion.
We are also planning to hold a
"silent auction" to raise $ to offset our costs. If you have any questions,
concerns, or would like to help with the Reunion, call:
