USS MAUNA KEA AE-22   Reunions

In April of 2020, the Mauna Kea Welcome banner will be traveling to
Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the 13th Reunion.
It will be held at the Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront on
April 30, May 1, and May 2.

The funds have been secured for the memorial plaque for Captain Sells, which will be

placed at the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial.  You can still make a donation

to Dick States, and would become a contributor to the memorial.  The design work

and application requirements are nearing completion.  Any access funds will be  applied

to the 13th Reunion expenses for the Hospitality Room
