Dedicated to the memory of the ship and officers and men who sailed her
Here we go again! Another
reunion is in the works. We are all set for our next reunion in Charleston,
South Carolina. The hotel that we selected is the Crowne Plaza Charleston Airport, a short distance from the airport
and right next to the Charleston Tanger outlet mall.
The hotel meets all our needs and can host a reunion of our size.
Please make your hotel reservations early. You can always cancel 24 hours in advance at no cost. We expect a nice turnout at this reunion so we want everyone to be able to get a room.† Early reservations also allow us to better plan the banquet and tour. The reservation cutoff date is March 22, 2018, after that we cannot guarantee that you will get your rooms.
The dates of the reunion are Monday April 23, Tuesday April 24 & Wednesday April 25. We booked mid-week dates to get a reduction in room rates. Of course, the reunion rates are in effect three days prior and post event for those who wish to stay longer. Free airport shuttle transportation is provided.
A reunion agenda and menuís will be published in a newsletter. The basic format will be followed; Monday check in, Tuesday group tour and Wednesday meetings and banquet.
Our group tour will leave the hotel at 9:00am and start with a leisurely driving tour of the Charleston area in coach busses. Then we will stop for lunch at the Harbor Breeze restaurant which is Patriotís Point right next to the maritime museum site. After lunch, we go to visit the ships at Patriotís Point, the USS Laffey will be the focus of our attention I am sure. Included in the price of the day long tour, which will be $85, will be tour guides, deluxe motor coaches, admission to Patriotís Point and Lunch at the Harbor Breeze.
