We are once again inviting sponsorship of our Hospitality Suite, for those Mates that would like to remember a Mate, or an event in their Jaycee life, or who cannot attend the Reunion personally, or who simply want to help sponsor the "hospitality" part of our 72nd Reunion. Sponsorships will be used to help defray the cost of the Hospitality Suite, and the food and drink served there. And like at the 72nd Reunion, a list of the donors and their names will be published in the Reunion Program.

Checks should be mailed to the Ship’s Purser, Mate Dave Atkin at 1600 Elmore Ave; Columbus OH 43224 and made out to "The Crew" with a notation of CREW Hospitality on the bottom left hand side. Thanks.




This is a great location and time when much of the US is still much colder. For those who want to come in early, they can play golf, go to the Spa and Register for early hospitality on March 19, 2009. The Theme of this event is: “Remember When” the late 1970's the US Jaycees peaked at almost 500,000 members with over 5,000 chapters. I am encouraging that all Mates of the 1970's and 1980's and the National Presidents to encourage their teams to come to come to this as a special reunion. Mate Randy Avon has agreed to help me with this Event when Florida Marched Number 1 in the Nation in June 1971.

For more information on the Plantation Inn, go to this website and more information on the Jaycee event and details and how to get there, go to: For those of you who want to know what's on the menu:

This web site was launched at the 68th Crew Reunion held on March 12-14, 2004 in Tulsa, OK.

Now a brief tour:

First no matter where you are, click on the Log of the S.S. Fellowship picture at the top of every page and you will return to this page.

  • CREW Volunteers - We will post names and email addresses to those who are volunteering to manage the CREW (if anyone could really manage this CREW) so you know who to contact about what.
  • Photos/Highlights - We hope to have some fun here. If you have photos (and descriptions), we will be posting them here on the site.  Information on how to provide this information is listed. We will also post highlights of reunions here as well.
  • The Log - We hope to be able to offer the Log of the S.S. Fellowship here and maybe save some postage.  if you are willing to view it on line, a paper copy would not need to be mailed.  We hope to ask MATES to let the KEEPER OF THE LOG informed and may be able to over time have more and more visit here for the Log of the S.S. Fellowship.
  • History - This will highlight the history of the USJCCCREW.  Wayne Field has developed a history of the crew and our intent is to publish it here on the web site.
    Crew Info - This is intended for general CREW information that may be provided including CREW reunion information. A copy of the CREW nomination form can also be found in this section of the website.
  • Crew List - The idea here is to upload the current list of MATES as a searchable database.  MATES will be able to enter a first name or last name, city or state and be able to immediately pull up any records we have for those categories.
  • Crew Update - Let's say you have recently moved or notice when you pull your record up on the CREW list that something is not right.  You will be able to access this page and complete basic information to be passed on to the CREW Volunteers to update the database and keep your records current.
  • Yahoo Group - There is currently a mailing list that has been developed through Yahoo Groups and many MATES are currently subscribed and involved.  IF a MATE who is not involved whishes to do so a link to be "invited" will be included and a direct link to the group swill also be available.

This is our first step to share the fellowship originally intended by the establishment of the CREW and the original KEEPER OF THE LOG  MATE John Armbruster. We are just hoping we can take advantage of the technology available and keep everyone a little closer!
