June 19-23, 2017
CREW REUNION

The 80th Annual Reunion of the CREW of the SS Fellowship will dock at the Hilton Northbrook/ Chicago, IL on Monday, June19, 2017.

Click here for a registration form.

Our theme this year is “The SS Fellowship Docks at Navy Pier.” The Navy Pier is a very large entertainment venue built on a pier in Lake Michigan with restaurants, amusements, shops, rides and much more. We will arrange an excursion there sometime Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at little or no cost. Mate John Sprole is 2nd Mate in Charge of CREW Reunions. If you have any questions, about leisure opportunities, contact Mate John at jsprole@gmail.com.

CREW hospitality quarters are on the tenth floor of the Northbrook Hilton. The hotel is just off I- 294, the Tri-State Tollway. With your registration you will receive a CREW polo shirt to wear during the convention. Specify your size on the registration form. The hospitality room will have drinks and hors d’oeuvres from 2 to 5 on Monday, June 15 and 1-4pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The CREW’s annual meeting will be on Thursday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 at the hotel. The SS Fellowship will shove off Friday morning, June 23, until next year’s reunion.

As you can see from our registration form, you are on your own for all meals except for a free hotel breakfast. We will be located in the center of Chicago's prestigious North Shore area bordering the glorious shores of Lake Michigan, near the towns of Glenview, Skokie, and Wilmette and close to many Fortune 500 headquarters including IBM, Abbott, Allstate, Kraft Foods, Baxter & Discover. We will be only 12 miles from O'Hare International Airport and 25 miles from downtown Chicago. You can begin your adventure in the North Shore at the Charles Gates Dawes Home, next to Northwestern University. A little north is Grosse Point Lighthouse, built in 1873 and designated as a National Historic Landmark. Continue on to see the Baha’i house of Worship, the only one in North America. Next tour Chicago Botanic Gardens, the Illinois Holocaust Museum, and the North Shore Center for the Performing arts in Skokie.

We’re pulling out all the stops to have many chances to meet old and new Mates of the CREW. That’s why we are giving a special invitation to those of you whose terms in national office ended in 2012, 2007, 2001, 1996/97, 1991/92, and 1986/87 (and before). You should make a special effort to attend and meet up with those with whom you served most closely.

We will have our hospitality bar open most afternoons of the week for registered Crew Mates only. The CREW will meet at the same time and place as the USJCI Senate annual meeting, but the CREW meeting is a separate function. More details are on the CREW registration form that is part of the Log and is here on our Web site.

Room reservations may be made at (847) 480-7500. Ask for the block code JCI. Hotel room rates are $139.50 per night plus tax. This includes breakfast each day. The special conference rate is available five days before and five days after the CREW meeting. Regular check-in would be Monday, June 19, and checkout would be Friday, June 23. Many Senators will be arriving Sunday, June 18. Room block cutoff is May 15, 2017. More information on amenities can be obtained from the hotel. If you have any questions, contact Mate John Sprole at jsprole@gmail.com.

CREW REUNION 2017 HOSPITALITY SUITE SPONSORSHIP

We are once again requesting sponsorships for our Hospitality Suite, a need of about $1,600 -- for those Mates that would like to remember a Mate or an event in their Jaycee life, who cannot attend the Reunion personally, or who simply want to help sponsor the "hospitality" part of our 80th Annual Reunion.

All donations and sponsorships of $100 or more will be used to defray the cost of the Hospitality Suite and the food and drinks served there. As at the 79th Reunion, a list of the donors and their names will be published in the Reunion Program.

Checks should made out to "The CREW of the SS Fellowship" with a notation of CREW Hospitality on the bottom left hand side and mailed to Mate Kim Newlin, 12455 SW 97th CT, Miami, FL 33176.

A special thanks to the Donors for the 79th Annual CREW Reunion:

When was the last time you considered and
acted on providing financial support to the Jaycees?
Maybe it is time to visit the Foundations Web Site and make a contribution.

There are several new levels of fellowship contributions and you can even contribute to help support the on-line archive that is under development.

It is quick, easy, online, secure and once you register
you can even view your history of contributions!

This web site was launched at the 68th Crew Reunion held on March 12-14, 2004 in Tulsa, OK.

Now a brief tour:

First no matter where you are, click on the Log of the S.S. Fellowship picture at the top of every page and you will return to this page.

  • CREW Volunteers - We will post names and email addresses to those who are volunteering to manage the CREW (if anyone could really manage this CREW) so you know who to contact about what.
  • Photos/Highlights - We hope to have some fun here. If you have photos (and descriptions), we will be posting them here on the site.  Information on how to provide this information is listed. We will also post highlights of reunions here as well.
  • The Log - We hope to be able to offer the Log of the S.S. Fellowship here and maybe save some postage.  if you are willing to view it on line, a paper copy would not need to be mailed.  We hope to ask MATES to let the KEEPER OF THE LOG informed and may be able to over time have more and more visit here for the Log of the S.S. Fellowship.
  • History - This will highlight the history of the USJCCCREW.  Wayne Field has developed a history of the crew and our intent is to publish it here on the web site.
    Crew Info - This is intended for general CREW information that may be provided including CREW reunion information. A copy of the CREW nomination form can also be found in this section of the website.
  • Crew List - The idea here is to upload the current list of MATES as a searchable database.  MATES will be able to enter a first name or last name, city or state and be able to immediately pull up any records we have for those categories.
  • Crew Update - Let's say you have recently moved or notice when you pull your record up on the CREW list that something is not right.  You will be able to access this page and complete basic information to be passed on to the CREW Volunteers to update the database and keep your records current.
  • Yahoo Group - There is currently a mailing list that has been developed through Yahoo Groups and many MATES are currently subscribed and involved.  IF a MATE who is not involved whishes to do so a link to be "invited" will be included and a direct link to the group swill also be available.

This is our first step to share the fellowship originally intended by the establishment of the CREW and the original KEEPER OF THE LOG  MATE John Armbruster. We are just hoping we can take advantage of the technology available and keep everyone a little closer!

Enjoy!
