A message from the TVW Reunion committee chairperson

Posted by ken On October - 18 - 2009

We have taken the liberty of reproducing below the contents of an email from Keith Bales to the TVW Reunion committee, TVW facilitating personnel, the print and electronic media, the Sponsors, the Entertainers and the many volunteer helpers who will make today’s reunion a memorable event for all attendees.

Few will know how tirelessly Keith has worked to arrange the sponsorship, First Aid contingencies and video recording of the event.

Keith has just recently announced that RUSSELL BROWN the Owner of Mintox Media has agreed to come to the reunion and video record it, for later sale at a modest fee with The Reunion Logo on it.
