2021 Reunion Cancelation


51st USS ESSEX Association "Joint Reunion" CANCELED

USS Essex Association Members,
I would like to begin by saying that the USS Essex Association had faced many challenges regarding our 2021 Reunion planning  this year.  We went from San Diego, to Louisville, to Charlotte to Jacksonville and including a footprint with the USS Yorktown Association.  Today the USS Yorktown notified “Essex” that it too has “Cancelled” their annual reunion.
The USS Wasp had cancelled their reunion last week due to the Pandemic in Florida and contract reasoning making it unsustainable to hold a reunion and “Joint reunion” to be clear.  Those that had HOTEL RESERVATIONS were notified by the Double Tree directly  and for those who made and PAID for Registration and Tours will be notified by the contract company Armed Forces Reunion or AFR.  They will provide the refunds as dictated by the contract signed by the USS WASP Association.
The USS Essex Association will therefore CANCEL all 2021 reunion planning upon receipt of this Notice.
The USS ESSEX Association will continue moving forward and task the Officers of the Association and Board of Directors to complete the requirement of conducting our business in the best interest of the Membership.  The Chairman will provide direction to those personnel that are tasked with carrying out that requirement.  The Membership will be informed of all that information in our “Fall Newsletter” as well as our plans for 2022.  Thank you all for your support and understanding.     

Tom Ferelli
