Reunion 2020 Information


The 2018 USS Francis Scott Key reunion will be held in Charleston, SC from May 13 - 17, 2020 ......  Anyone with suggestions for the reunion should contact Diane Singleman at


Here is the latest from Diane as of:

May 12, 2019 - Reunion 2020 News: Diane Singleman has just sent e-mail to everyone regarding the 2020 Key Reunion in Charleston, SC next May.  Read Diane' e-mail below.  If you have not received an e-mail, please send Diane your current e-mail address.

I am in the process of planning the 2020 Key reunion in Charleston. It will be from Wed., May 13th thru Sun., May 17th. We will be staying at the same hotel as we did in 2012, The Quality Inn & Suites. It is currently undergoing a total renovation that will be completed later this summer, and at that time the name will be changed to a Comfort Inn & Suites. They are giving us a super good deal on the rates. Prices have gone up significantly, but we have the same rate for Sun-Thurs of $99 that we had in 2012 and a rate of $139 for Fri & Sat ( about $50 less than the rate for non military reunion groups on the weekend.) 

Quality Inn & Suites,
196 Patriots Point Rd., Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464


Call the hotel to book your room if you think you might attend. You can always cancel a few weeks prior to the event if you change your mind.
Please email or call me ( 518-355-2119) if you have any questions.
