Results of Our Survey
and Other Interesting Data

Back in June we mailed 78 letters to former cadets for whom we had snail mail addresses.  I know that you are all dying to hear about the responses that were received, so without further ado, here are the statistics.

Mailed - 78
Responses Received - 23 (or 28.2%)

I can only presume that the other 72.8% are steaming the stamps from the self-addressed, stamped envelopes ;-)

  Survey Question Affirmative Responses Percent Affirmative Responses
1 Do you believe that pursuing an all-class reunion is the right thing to do? 23 100%
2 Would you attend a one-day, picnic-style all-class reunion in Jacksonville (a nominal fee will need to be charged, probably in the range of $25 - spouses would be invited)? 21 91.3%
3 Would you be willing to serve on a "search committee" to locate ex-cadets (consists of internet searches, mail, and phone calls to potential names)? 13 56.5%
4 Would you be willing to help with the planning and organizing of the reunion event? 9 39.1%
5 Would you be willing to act as a "Class Organizer" once the reunion plans have been established (may include setting a "meet me" location, a class poster/banner, and organization of any extra-reunion activities that your class desires)? 5 21.7%
6 Would you be willing to donate $1.00 to $5.00 to help defray the cost of postage used in the search process? 21 91.3%

I would like to thank the ten people that sent donations (varying between $3.74 and $20).   Many more offered donations on the "just ask me" basis.  I think that may come in the future, but for now we are okay financially.

Financial Status
Below is a spreadsheet of expenses and income that I consider reunion related.  I scrubbed this copy of names because I do not want to point out from where the donations have come.  I have not listed all of the expenses incurred by Max Elliott, Thornton Ridinger, Robert Mouro, or myself for web search tools that were acquired.  We believe in this enough that reimbursement for these expenses is not required.

Okay, so I am not an accountant!  This was easy to do and I think it works.   If the numbers ever got to be significant, we will open a bank account and do this formally, but for now......this is it.  If anyone wants to volunteer to be Treasurer, be my guest!
