January 20, 2020     Florida 2020 Reunion

From Brother Gary Johnson:
We have for many years planned a gathering in Florida for our Brothers and Sisters to share food, drink and Fraternalism.
This year Pat (Ed) Kollmann made attempts to get info on a 5 day cruise for groups and discovered that we were late for groups in June, so we are looking into it for next summer ( 2021).
So this year we’re looking at The Plantation on Crystal River https://www.plantationoncrystalriver.com/  either June 11th-15th or June 25th-29th 2020. We went there in 2005 and found it absolutely accommodating, beautiful and spacious. There was also so many activities around us boredom wasn’t in our vocabulary. So much has changed, Since 2005 The Plantation is under new ownership and much updating has been done and its actually a perfect place for all our needs.
NOW for all of us. I need to know the number of interested people and which dates would be more accommodating, for the majority, prior to my contacting them. The more rooms we have the better negotiating power we have. Now Im looking at 20+ rooms, if we can start at that number, Of course we all are hoping for more. ALSO, if anyone has any ideas of where we can have a Reunion in Florida, please let me know. Especially in the Panhandle area. We have many Brothers and Sisters West of Tallahassee because of distance dont join us.
Please send me a text of email of the date that your interested ONLY in The Plantation Crystal River by February 1, 2020. There will a deadline date later for your confirmation. I need to start the negotiation ASAP.
Thanks all….

January 15, 2020     For Old Times

The owners of the Original Ledo Restaurant in College Park are looking for a buyer, citing a desire to retire.

Established in 1955 on University Boulevard, Ledo moved to the location at 4509 Knox Rd. in 2010 to be part of the city and the University of Maryland’s efforts to revitalize downtown.

A commercial real estate listing notes that the 5,800-square-foot restaurant will be across the street from the new City Hall complex and has had a “big price reduction.”

The restaurant was started by Tommy Marcos Sr. and Robert Beall just as the pizza craze of the 1950s was taking off. Their pizza had its signature square shape because round pans were harder to come by at the time, and the name was chosen because it was short, making it cheaper to put on the sign.

During its heyday in the 1960s, sports legends like Yogi Berra, Johnny Unitas and Joe Namath were regulars at Ledo. As the Washington Post once noted, “Frank Sinatra ordered Ledo’s takeout when he was in town. So have Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones.” In 2006, it was featured in a series on the best pizza in America on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” thanks to Maryland alum Gayle King.

As the name implies, the Original Ledo Restaurant is separate from the Ledo’s Pizza chain, which has locations from the Mid-Atlantic down to Florida. The sons of Marcos and Beall started the chain in 1989, but the Marcos family left after a legal dispute.

The resolution of the legal case allowed Jimmy and Tommy Marcos Jr. to run the Original Ledo Restaurant and another restaurant in Bowie.

January 8, 2020     Journey Through Time

Good Morning All,
As you all know, Denny Campbell and I are working on research in an effort to produce a sequel to Journey Through Time.  In an effort to solicit additional assistance, we would like to schedule a meeting at the lodge next Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 1400 hours.  We are looking for assistance from both active officers and retirees.
Is it possible to send an email to the Retirees Association, as well as active officers, so that anyone interested in assisting with this project can attend this meeting?
Some of those who have expressed interest include Jen Reio, Sherrice Carpenter (although I’m unsure if she would have time considering her new position), Mike Landrum, and Jen Arthur.  Is it possible to get their email addresses so I can send them a separate email?  Others have expressed interest as well, but I already have their email addresses.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
Fraternally,
Bruce Evartt
