Under the direction of composer Bob Crewe's guidance and signed to the 20th Century label, Diane Renay, then 17 years old, released her biggest hit, "Navy Blue", in late 1963. The song told the story of a girl, lonely for her steady boyfriend away from home in the U.S. Navy and anxious to see him again. "Navy Blue", composed by Crewe with Bud Rehak and Eddie Rambeau, became a national smash, reaching No. 6 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in February 1964, and soaring to No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary singles chart.

KEARSARGE Association members, families and Friends,
Because of the Coronavirus situation a decision has been made to cancel/postpone our May reunion in Milwaukee (MKE), Wisconsin. Tentatively, we will try to reschedule very close (in MKE) to the same time period in 2021. We will keep everyone informed as appropriate when confirmation is made. KEARSARGE Association Treasurer, Bill Hollywood, will be reimbursing each of you for the amount paid for registration fees and all events.
The cancellation/postponement is made with disappointment, but in the best interest for the safety of all. I just received an email minutes ago stating that the Governor of Wisconsin also banned all meetings immediately of 10 or more people until further notice. (Your elected officers had already decided earlier today to cancel and that was more confirmation.)
Cancel your hotel reservations at your earliest opportunity. Call 414-273-2950 (hotel direct), If any difficulty is involved I will personally intervene on your behalf. Also, if you have already made flight/other transportation arrangements, cancel them please for this year. I understand that airlines are working with their customers for refunds/some type of credits for a future flight. Considering this “National Emergency” I’m hopeful and optimistic they will work with you.
I am sincerely sorry and truly regret this disappointment and inconvenience and trust you will understand the reason for this decision. Any/All comments concerning cancellation/reschedule are requested immediately as long term planning is essential.
