Dear Former Khmer Navy:

August 19, 2018

The 3-day celebration of RU2018 that commenced on August 17th through the 19th concluded with very fond memories.  I would like to again thank my family and friends who graciously and tirelessly worked with me and helped me in every which way to make the RU2018 an amicable and enjoyable event filled with plenty of fun.  And, of course from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank and appreciate every one of our guests who committed to the reunion and was able to join us in the Pacific Northwest.  Among them, numerous guests traveled from abroad, from countries as far away as Australia, Cambodia, France, and across numerous states in the USA including AL, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, MN, NC, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, TN, TX, VA, and of course WA.

During the picnic event at the Blue Lake Park, the Former Khmer Navy overwhelmingly decided to have our next FKN Reunion take place in two years.  And, San Antonio, TX was chosen to be the next city to celebrate the RU2020.   Mr. Ban-Lun Lean accepted the nomination and will host the RU2020.

With great pleasure, I would like to transfer my duty as the RU2018 organizer to Mr. Ban-Lun Lean and wish him great success and the best of luck in planning and organizing the next FKN Reunion in 2020.

Sincerely,

Nicitha You, Chairman RU2018

Hello Friends and Colleagues,

As the RU2018 event draws near, I am pleased to release a schematic representation of the seating plan for RU2018 guests attending the Grand Banquet during the evening of 8/18/18.

Collaborating with Hilton Hotel, we came up with this accommodating seating plan. You may notice that there will simply be two rows of tables surrounding the dancing floor in order to ensure that guests feel a part of this auspicious event and prevent table isolation.  This “Table Guests Seating Chart” is intended to promote a comfortable setting and opportunities among guests to joyfully interact with one another.  To make you feel more comfortable, you may also notice that your family members and your friends with whom you registered are grouped altogether, along with other guests to fill the table.  Please try to familiarize yourself as to which table you are assigned to by referencing the attached “Table Guests Seating Chart.”

Please be advised that the check-in for RU2018’s Banquet at the Hilton Hotel will commence at 5:00 PM, followed with photos sessions.  Therefore, as soon as you and your family complete the check-in protocol, you can have your family photo taken by our photographer at the Photo Station located in the Reception Area (outside of Ballroom).

I hope we have a fantastic and memorable reunion together.  Lastly, I wish you, your family and friends a safe and marvelous trip to the RU2018 taking place in the Pacific Northwest.

Enjoy the Vancouver USA picturesque music and entertainments: https://www.facebook.com/VisitVancouverUSA/videos/10154429443341540/
