BITS AND PIECES

Bath, the birthplace of the Wadsworth is now history. The reunion was a roaring success; thanks to the efforts of Joe Byrnes and all of the others who may have contributed. We were fortunate to have been allowed to tour the shipyard. We had a beautiful Memorial Service on the shores of the Kennebec River and being aided by the playing of taps by Zeddy Rush's Grandson; Brian Meyers. We honored 13 shipmates who passed on since the last reunion plus a special mention of Muriel Libby and Russell Crawford, the two shipmates who were killed in action at Bougainville.

The lobsters seemed to play a large part in our festivities. Everyone seemed to enjoy the lobster feast on Saturday. The generosity of the Collins family and Jane Moyers in furnishing the cocktails was greatly appreciated. It was simply a great bunch of people.

It's now time to move on. The next reunion has been scheduled for Charleston, S.C. in October of 2005. We have been in contact with some of the Hotel and Tour people there. It appears we will have room rates around $80.

The tours will include a dinner at one of the large plantations. The memorial service will be held on one of the ships docked at Patriots Point. That's it for now.

"Thanks for saving my life!"
