                                       2017 Reunion Information

  Greetings to all shipmates and significant others. We are getting ready to celebrate our 2017 reunion in our homeport, Newport R.I. It is my hope that it will mean as much to others as this trip down memory lane means to me. Work has been done to layout the agenda and we believe the package should be enjoyed by all. For those that have not been back in many years you will see that Newport has transformed into a beautiful resort from the Navy town that we all knew. The reunion will be held earlier this year on September 24,25,26 2017. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. This is to accommodate all those from the South that would be too cold in our late October weather! The hotel chosen will be the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Middletown, R.I. This is within 2 miles from downtown Newport and very close to the base. Reservations for the Homewood Suites must be made by each attendee. To make a reservation call or go on their website ( www.newporthomewood.com) (phone- 401-848-2700) use our code NKP. The cut off date to book a room will be August 4th 2017.
