SigEp Vets announce Conclave plans

Renato Villacorte lets us know what SigEps who are veterans have planned for the weekend. Renato is a good guy, even if he is a jarhead. (Spoken by an old Navy man, of course!)

Conclave:
Once again, we are gathering with pride at Conclave 2009. I have a limited number of VETS ribbons for your convention badges. John Hopson and I will be at every event in order to issue them. As you may have guessed, we will be asking for a $40 donation to our Fundraiser in exchange for your ribbon. Of course, your donation will count as an entry into the sweepstakes. (n.b.: Sweepstakes Prizes to be announced at Conclave, but rest assured they are worth it. ed.)

We will be at the SigEpVets/NUTS reception on the night of Friday, August 14. Wear motivating t-shirts/polos to show your service pride. The festivities will begin after most of us return from the Board of Governor’s dinner. There will be music, beverages, and Brotherhood. This reception is traditionally the loudest event in hotel. Look for signs or follow the singing.

We will also have a reserved table at the Alumni Awards Dinner on Saturday night, August 15. Please email me at Rvillac2@aol.com if you want to be included at this table. We will have the Fallen Comrades table next to us in honor of those falling from our ranks. Dress is formal and, if you can still fit in them, wear your dress uniforms.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can be reached at the email above and connected to at:www.facebook.com/renato.villacorte. I’m looking forward to hearing from you all.

God Bless You and Thank You for your service.
Semper Fidelis and HFF,
Renato G. Villacorte USMC (86-94)/SigEpVets
