Reunion 2006 was a memorable event held at the CG Academy/Hilton Mystic CT. and enjoyed by all in attendance. Thursday was spent at the Meeting room at Hilton Mystic with many personal collections of member's photos and newspaper articles collected while serving in the CG. Videos were played of the CGC Raritan's last ice breaking mission on the Hudson River and the first ice breaking mission of the CGC Sturgeon Bay. The CGTA website was also being displayed on a laptop computer along with photo slide shows of CG Tugs provided by member Jim Flynn. Two attendees not pictured above are Tim O'Dell who was called home due to a family emergency and member Jim Flynn.

The meeting room was filled with items that would be auctioned on Saturday along with raffle items. Along with the displays which were of interest to all, we had a great time just sitting around telling stories of our lives aboard Coast Guard Tugs and sharing the great memories we all have.

The CGTA owes a debt of gratitude to CWO2 David French, USCGA Public Affairs Officer, for his help in arranging the Greenland Patrol Memorial Ceremony, for our recognition at the Cadet review and Recognition of the CGTA at evening colors and the dedication and presentation of the U.S. Flag to CGTA Member, Ken Black. And again our hearty thanks to Scott Schultz and Marilyn Cicord for the wonderful accommodations and buffet dinner at the USCGA Officer's Club. Thank you and BZ!
