The 2022 USS Francis Scott Key
reunion will be held in Charleston, SC from Monday, May2 thru Friday, May 6. Anyone with suggestions for the reunion should
contact Diane Singleman at email@example.com.
Here is the latest from Diane as of:
09 August 2021 - Shipmates,
Attached is the registration form that needs to be completed by everyone who
plans to attend the reunion & go to any of our events. (note: you should
have received the form via e-mail. If you did not, contact Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org)
This needs to be returned to me by April 3, 2022. If you need to reserve a
room, call 1-843-856-8817 & give our group
code BD9805 and identify yourself as a Key reunion
attendee in order to get our special rate. Please reserve your room as soon as
you think you
might be attending. I have a limited number of rooms in our block & can only
add more at our rate when needed if they have rooms available. You
can always cancel your room if something changes your plan to attend. If
you plan to go to Patriots Point & tour the Yorktown, there have
been some changes here. There is no longer a snack bar on board where you can
get burgers & other lunch items. The is now a vending machine
area that sells sandwiches & other items. On shore there are food trucks
available to purchase lunch. However, I have reserved the CPO Galley &
we will have a choice of 3 different box lunches available for you to order. I
will need you to complete your lunch choice on the registration
form, so I know how many meals to order. If you will be ordering a lunch, please
have this information to me by at least by Mar. 29, 2022.
As always, if you have any questions, just email me or call me at 518-355-2119.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Stay healthy &
hopefully we will all be together again.

I am currently making arrangements for the next Key reunion.
I hope everyone who had planned to come in 2020 will be able to make it this
time. Looking forward to seeing everyone again & meeting all the new
shipmates that had planned to come it 2020.
The reunion will be in Mt. Pleasant (Charleston), SC from Monday, May 2

in and register. Our banquet will be on Thurs. night and check out will be Fri.
May 6th. Trips will be on Tue-Thurs. Registration form will be emailed as soon
as all the times are finalized.
Just like everything else, motel rates for the weekends are very high. The hotel
suggested that we hold the reunion during the week, like most military groups
also hold their reunions. We will be staying at the same hotel we had planned to
stay at in 2020 & go on the same trips (Charleston tour, Hunley tour,
Patriot Point tour etc). We will also go on the harbor dinner cruise on our last
We will be staying at the Comfort Inn & Suites Patriots
Point. The phone number for the hotel is 843-856-8817. Our Group Code is BD9805.
Be sure to call the hotel at this number, tell them you are with the USS Francis
Scott Key Reunion and give them our group code in order to get our special group
rates. DO NOT CALL the number on the Choice Hotel website!!
We will pay the same rate they were going to charge us for 2020 Sun-Thurs
nights, $99.00 - 109.00, depending on the room you reserve. Weekend rates for
Fri and Sat $189-$199 (Their regular weekday rate is $149.00 and the weekend
rate is $239.00). If you wish to
extend your time at the hotel, they will honor the reduced rates for the Fri,
Sat & Sun before the reunion starts and for the Fri & Sat after the
reunion is over.
If you are thinking of going, book a room now. We have a block of rooms
reserved and can add more if needed, as long as they still have rooms available.
You can always cancel a few weeks before the reunion if you later decide you
cannot attend. So book early. If you
have any questions, just email me at email@example.com
or give me a call at 518-355-2119.
