We Need to Raise Funds for Our Event. Help Us!


Fund RaisingThe Southern Forest Service Retirees Association is hosting the 2018 Reunion. Since this will be the first reunion east of the Mississippi River we want to impress attendees with the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, and to showcase the unique management of our southern National Forests. We are expecting 500-600 attendees from across the country.

To meet our expectations for the reunion we need your help! To provide the necessary funding for the event we are counting upon donations from our members as well as providing advertising opportunities for local businesses and organizations. There are several ways that you can become a part of this reunion and help our retiree organization continue to serve you.


1. Donations

Donations are welcome in any amount. We are asking Forest Service retirees to make a small donation to help us host this event. All donations will be recognized in the reunion program and on our website. Any contribution that you can make will go a long ways towards a successful reunion.

2. Exhibits

We will have 8’-10’ exhibit booth spaces at the reunion for those organizations and companies that wish to promote their products and services.



3. Advertisements

Several opportunities for advertising your organization or business are available. Space will be available in our 2018 Reunion Program for full page, half page and quarter page ads. Your organization may also wish to insert an advertisement in our registration tote bag.



4. Silent Auction

Donating an item or service for our silent auction is also a fun way to help raise the necessary funds for the reunion.


5. Sponsorships

Individuals, organizations or businesses might wish to sponsor the reunion or an event at the reunion.  Reunion sponsors will receive exhibit booth space, be featured on our website and in our program. We will also personally recognize each of our sponsors during the first day of the reunion.
