Dumpster hides Rohna history

In 2016, Tom Finn retrieved a batch of papers from a dumpster in Cincinnati, Ohio. After discovering these papers, Tom did some investigating and found that The Rohna Survivors Memorial Association would be holding a reunion at the Crowne Plaza in Dayton, so he drove to it with his son Nick, as they felt that the papers were too important to just be thrown away.

As it turns out, the collection includes more than 250 letters, photos and documents (over 1,000 pages total).

The Association was so grateful to them that they were invited to our 2017 reunion in Indianapolis. Here is a photograph of then President, Michael Walsh, with Tom Finn and his son Nick.

2020 Reunion

2020 Reunion Has Been Cancelled


Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and with sad hearts, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Rohna reunion.

We believe it is the right course of action to take for the health and safety of our members.

We have already rescheduled the reunion in Salt Lake City, Utah to June 10-13, 2021. Even though the travel and hotel industries have been hit hard by this health crisis, they have guaranteed us the same room rates.

If you are not registered to receive our newsletter, please do so now. We will do our best as determined by current events, to get it out to our membership. Please keep safe and stay healthy during these unprecedented times.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in June 2021!

Your Reunion Coordinators
