2005 - The 25th Annual USS Terror Reunion

Salt Lake City, Utah

September 14-19, 2005

Report

The Reunion in 2005 was a wonderful success. More than 30 crew members attended along with almost 50 family members and guests. Jodi McPherson did a wonderful job planning a great time and a program allowing lots of time for stories and fond memories. Sightseeing trips were arranged to see various sights in the Salt Lake City area. A hospitality room served as the hub for the activities with the raffle items, beverages, food and snacks and lots of room to meet and share pictures and other memorabilia. The reunion culminated with the annual crew members meeting on Sunday followed by group pictures, entertainment by a talented musician who had lots of humorous routines to add to the music. I will never look at a bicycle pump the same way again. Then the annual banquet closed the evening with lots of goodwill and the drawing of all the raffles.

A special treat was the fact that a local CBS affiliate in Salt Lake City came and covered the reunion. It was very special for everyone to see a copy of the tape. For more information check out the website for channel 2 KUTV - Salt Lake City http://kutv.com/local/local_story_261195126.html You can view the video there as well.
