- If you plan on attending, please send me your full name, number of attendees, contact information and a check. Some of those who have contacted me only gave me your email address. CPD Re-pro graphics is printing tickets and posters - I'll either mail you your tickets or have them waiting for you at the door, if you choose to prepay. Please make the check payable to Michael Mattson, in the amount of $30 per person - in the memo line please write "convention reunion." My mailing address is:
7455 W. Seminole
Chicago, IL 60631
(All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Chicago Police Memorial Fund).
A T-shirt company is designing shirts for the occasion. If you have any other ideas please let me know.
If you'd like to volunteer for the Food Committee, please feel free to research food vendors and let me know what you find out. I've hit a bit of a wall on that one, and the clock is ticking.
Lodge rules prohibit any bottles - all beer, wine and pop must be in cans or plastic cups. Any volunteers for the Libation Committee would be welcome as well.
I've contacted a photographer as well. Phil Cline has agreed to attend the event, as well. Still no word from John Kass or his staff.
Depending on the success of the event, we may make this Annual.
Please bring any memorabilia that you think relevant - old riot gear, call boxes, photos, log-books...etc.
Thanks again for your interest and participation in this reunion. Thank you especially for your service to the City and to your fellow police officers.
We took out Mike's cell phone number as this site is trolled by non-police. If he wants to post it in the comment section, we'll pass it along. But it sounds like a good time. Hopefully, they have a "Dunk the Hippy" tank and a "Dodge the Flying Excrement" event. Come out and party like it's 1968.
