WELCOME TO THE 2005 SOLAR GUARD REUNION
The 2005 Solar Guard Academy reunion is set for March 9- 12, 2005 in Williamsburg Virginia. Cadets will be able to meet and greet each other and enjoy some of the classic episodes of the 1950's Space shows while at the festival. Check the Williamsburg Film Festival for the latest information on the guests and hotel reservations.
The Solar Guard Academy display theme for 2005 will be "Remembering Ed Kemmer, Commander of the Space Patrol". Some rare photos provided by Lyn Osborn's sister, Beth Flood, will be part of the display along with other cast members from the show.
