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.
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.
SEE YOU ALL IN BRANSON NOV. 7TH TO 12TH 2009. LATER - CPLEE
