'The Princess Family'
Thanks for keeping the family alive. May you keep it going happily for years to come.
Philip Weiser, Cannes, France

22-29 September 2014 The Princess Family met in Bermuda
for their 50. anniversary reunion in Bermuda. Some 180 members participated, 120 from overseas like New Zealand, Australia, Europe and North America.
There was a Nostalgic Tour of The Princess Hotel, Welcome Party at The Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club, Cocktail and Dinner at Tom Moore's, House Party at Nicky & Tyrone
Chin and lots of luncheon meetings all over the Island.


HI Peter,

Thank you very much for a fun filled reunion. A very well organized event thanks to you and your organizing committee. This is Arohanui from NZ until we meet again.

Hi Dianne Carlson

Just to thank you for your great efforts to keep the Princess Family alive on radio in Bermuda.

Lots of people greet me and talk about the good old times...

I hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we did and I am looking forward to see you again next year on my holiday in Bermuda.l".

Love Peter

clearly 50 years ago the work environment was very different from today's. Sad that we move on and loose the good qualities.

So proud that this group has "stuck" together over the years!!! These are the workers who "made" Bermuda the tourist destination it was many years ago! Peter, thanks for keeping the group together and I am certain you all will be celebrating your 60th, 70th and 80th reunions to come!!!

Hi Peter,
Thanks for your latest newsletter and above all your continued dedication to keeping us all connected. You have a rare quality and gentle understanding of human nature. For all the mostly silent members of your Princess Family who receive your words..... Many thanks.

Hi Peter

Your 'Bermuda family' seems to be growing in leaps & bounds! And you
thought you were retiring!!

I think you read the Royal Gazette before we do -- and definitely more

I also get the impression that all participants truly appreciate your
efforts --

All the best,
Pat Heinicke, Bermuda

Your keeping the Princess Family together is invaluable.You keep a lot of people happy!
