    The final arrangements have been made for our reunion in Salem, Massachusetts from May

23, until May 27, 2022.  Salem is very near Boston, and has a varied and rich 

Maritime and cultural history.  It was incorporated in 1629, and is most famous for its  

Witch Trials, which is themed throughout present day Salem.  We have secured the Historic Hawthorne Hotel in the center of Salem, which is within walking distance or trolley ride to restaurants and many attractions.  We have been granted permission to an early visit to the USS Constitution, which as you probably know is a commissioned active duty ship, with an active duty crew.  We have been given special permission to hoist the Roadrunner Flag and Presidential Unit Citation, below the US Flag from a Yard-Arm.  After the Constitution tour we have the opportunity to visit the Cassin Young a Fletcher class Destroyer tied up near the Constitution. 

   We are pleased to announce the planned attendance of Vice Admiral James Amerault, first

Captain of USS Nicholas FFG47 and World War 2 shipmates of USS Nicholas DD449, Al Liberatore and Arthur Thurston, both of whom have celebrated their 100th birthday.kc v    The total cost pricing below, is for bus transportation, trolley transportation, meeting room rental, continental breakfast for 3 days served in the meeting room, lunch at FINZ 

Restaurant on the harbor in Salem, after the trolley tour and finally a Banquet dinner on May 26th after our Ship’s Meeting.
