At the 2018 Reunion in Jacksonville, FL, the members present voted to go to the DC area for 2019 and to Albuquerque, NM for 2020. This will be the SECOND TIME to have our reunion in the DC area and the FIRST TIME in Albuquerque!!!

 

In 2019, we will be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Sperry’s commissioning. We have a Friday tour of the Capitol, the Library of Congress, and a stop at the memorials lined up, and a Saturday tour of the Navy Yard. There is no cost to these tours, so we hope that you will come and help us celebrate. If you need a wheel chair for the tours, there are rentals available in the area.

 

The Hilton Washington Dulles Airport is just a short distance from Dulles Airport, and Herndon, VA is just a short drive from the Capitol.

For reservations, call the hotel directly @ 703-478-2900. If you call, please mention that you are with the “USS Charles S. Sperry Reunion” and ask for THE REUNION RATE, which is good 3 days prior and 3 days after. DO NOT use their public website to make reservations! You can book reservations online @ their DESIGNATED SPERRY RESERVATION WEB PAGE HERE. Reservation deadline is April 1, 2019. Stragglers will be in a space available situation after April 11th.

We do not have a large room block and this hotel regularly books up in advance, so BOOK YOUR ROOM NOW! If necessary, you have until two days before the reunion to cancel the reservation, but if you wait, you may not get a room.

We had a very special 2018 reunion in Jacksonville, FL. It was our first visit, and the Mayport tour was a bit chilly and windy, but we had a great time. We had several ‘first timers’, and some that we hadn’t seen since in a long time.  We hope that you will join us in DC.

ALSO: IF YOU HAVE CRUISE BOOKS OR PICTURES OF YOUR TIME ABOARD THE SPERRY THAT YOU WOULD ALLOW US TO POST ON THE WEBSITE FOR OTHERS TO ENJOY, BE SURE TO BRING THEM ALONG OR CONTACT THE WEBMASTER HERE TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO GET THEM FROM YOU.
