The site of the Forest Service Retiree 2015 National Reunion was in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Marriott Pyramid, October 11-16, 2015 - the week after the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

We had 525 current and past Forest Service employees, spouses and guests from all over the United Statesattend. Reunion events featured cultural and historic presentations about the U.S. Forest Service. Everyone had a great time.

This event benefit the National Museum of Forest Service History located in Missoula, Montana whose mandate is to preserve and educate the public on the diverse history of the Forest Service. The reunion made at least $10,000 that we will be passing on to the museum.

This was the first Reunion with a Facebook presence. We started the page right after the 2012 reunion in Vail, Colorado. We uploaded several hundred pictures and a video or two.
