<!--<b>Branson, MO is the greatest location for a reunion of any place in the USA and has Great Shows and attractions. The
position is in the heartland of the United States which makes it more accessible than anywhere for all
attendees.  The veterans week there is unbelievable. </b><br>
<big><b><font color="#CC3333">If you want to experience the finest and richest comradery of
The Elite Grovers - There is no time or place to do it other than Veteran's week at Branson,
MO. This reunion does not waver, nor does it change locations. We welcome all Troops who
served at the Grove or had or have any connection to the Grove as well as their families and
friends.  The Grove was only active USAF from spring 1951 until spring 1959. All other reunions are "OK" and should be attended but our Branson Reunion  is the
"real deal". The escape! The Grovers' reunion is a retreat to a place so true to itself,  
its' standard is never undone. It is a haven , so intense, so gratifying, it becomes a
sanctuary for your emotions ...a destination to return to every year.  It's a reflection of
your yearly reprieve and much like RAF station Shepherds Grove itself , it is a place to enjoy.
Yours to Enjoy. I hope we can keep finding new troops to experience the reunion and as attrition
eliminates our numbers I trust that, just as Jim Hollingsworth was the last man to leave the
Grove in the spring of 1959, there will be someone, in a very distant year, at the Branson Grovers Reunion to turn
off the lights on November 12th.<BR>
SEE YOU ALL WHENEVER YOU HAVE DESIRES AND COMMIT FOR ANOTHER GROVER REUNION.  LATER - CPLEE</font></big><P>
<P><center><b><big>IF YOU DID OR DIDN'T MAKE IT TO A PREVIOUS REUNION. THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE THIS YEAR NOVEMBER 7TH TO 12TH WE WILL CUT OUT THE LIGHTS.--> <center>I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANOTHER REUNION BUT LAST YEAR NO ONE POSITIVELY RESPONDED. IF YOU TOO WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ANOTHER ONE LET ME HEAR FROM YOU "BE THE GOOD LORD WILLING AND THE CREEKS DON'T RISE WE WILL SEE YOU THEN IF STILL ALIVE"</big></b></center><P>
