2018 REUNION

Advertisements

UP DATE 6-13-2018

The May 2018 Oak Grove Hotshot Reunion, held at beautiful South Lake Tahoe, was very successful with almost 80 folks attending that included Angeles retirees, girlfriends, wives and family. Donations for the auction collected over $1,700 for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. After discussing the issue of seed money for the 2020 reunion with the foundation, it was agreed that the Oak Grove Hotshots would send them $1,100 now and retain the remaining funds. If the funds are not used as an expenditure for the 2020 reunion, then the balance will be sent to the Foundation.
We want to thank those that attended the reunion, the folks that gave items for the auction and the Wildland Firefighter Foundation for their help.

2018 Reunion

May 22 and 23
This is your invitation to an exciting 68 year reunion. We have so much going on besides the comradery with our crew and fellow firefighters. We will have a silent auction and memorabilia such as Oak Grove Hotshot Tee shirts, patches, rings and coffee mugs with the reunion logo above. All profits from the memorabilia will go to support the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.

We are returning to the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel. Call: 530.544.5400 or 877.497.8483 for reservations.
Make your reservations early because we have a relatively small block of rooms.

The reserve for the helmet will start at $30. Minimum incremental bids are $5. This original aluminum helmet complete with liner, will make an excellent center piece on your mantel.
You can bid on the helmet by using our email address: oghotshot@comcast.net Bids will then be posted on our blog at: oakgrovehotshots.wordpress.com Closing for the email bid is Sunday May 20th 2018 at 1700.

Tee shirt orders are now being taken by Larry Boggs at: larryboggs7851@gmail.com
Both the Angeles N.F. and Woody patches are available from Chuck Grennell at: chuckgrennel@gmail.com
Coffee cups (11oz) with the reunion logo will be available at the reunion only as they are too delicate to ship. The price is $ 10.00 each.

We will be auctioning a helmet and you can start the bidding before the reunion.
The aluminum Bullard helmet was donated by the late Bud Parrott of the San Bernardino N.F. and refurbished by Larry Boggs. The decal on the front of the helmet is an original 1960’s era donated by Bob Brady.
