The April 19 – 21, 2013 Reunion of the Tortugateers

The April 19 – 21, 2013 Reunion of the Tortugateers of Prado Dam/Mara Toga is history and the rave reviews were overwhelming; below are just a few ---- 

“As usual, another reunion much enjoyed and long to be remembered…the afternoon was made even more enjoyable with the BBQ dinner …the best in my memory…”    Bill Burnett ‘59

 “…sending a couple of the pictures from the OUTSTANDING REUNION PARTY …  We enjoyed the reunion so very much, and again thank you for all the work you do to make it happen.”   Rusty and Bebe Grosse  ‘57

 It was wonderful. I think I realize how much work went into it. Thank you enormously.”    George Kennedy '67

 Just had to let you know how much I appreciate all the effort you put in to make the Reunion a great success. The catering was just terrific, food was waaaay too good. I know the work and logistics involved in putting any event like this together and it all came together seamlessly.”    Dee Empey, Honorary Member

 “I returned to Jamaica Plain last night and offered Patricia the last bits of the rum cake that…..was my prize for travelling slightly more miles to attend the reunion than Fred and Shannon Lowery.  The box was crumpled from being packed tightly in my suitcase since leaving Anderson's Pea Soup Motel.  Even in its less than pristine Tortuga Rum Cake box, my bride, Patricia, devoured the left-overs before dinner.  We both can recommend the rum cake … “    George Pray  ‘62

 “Just a note to tell you how much Shirl and I enjoyed the Tortuga weekend.”   Peter Marr   ‘59

 "…the BBQ meal was the best ever. I sent a message to our class scribe filling him in on the event.  For our next … event I want to get involved and contact some of the older farts and try to get them to attend.  Keep me in mind when you start pulling those plans together.”   Paul Kral ‘54

Paul can start recruiting now, because the organizing committee has already determined that the next reunion will be the weekend of April 17 – 19, 2015. Mark your calendars. And the organizing committee is pleased to announce that the 2013 was the first in memory to show a slight “surplus” and that a contribution in the amount of the surplus will be made to the Tortuga/Mara Toga Scholarship Fund.
