USS SPROSTON (DD/DDE-577)
INVITATION TO THE BOSTON REUNION SEPT 17-21 2008
The 2008 Boston Reunion activities are in place. Ken Landry and Paul Morsewich have worked hard to ensure that you have a great time in Boston this year. We will stay at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1360 Worcester St., Natick MA. More Navy activities have been planned than in previous reunions, including a tour of the destroyer USS Cassin Young (DD-793), tour of the USS Constitution, lunch in the wardroom of the battleship USS Massachusetts (BB-59), Memorial Service aboard the USS Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. (DD-850), and a bus tour of Boston with lunch in the Faneuil Hall Market Place downtown. Of course we will break bread at the Saturday evening banquet/raffle and Sunday morning brunch. Len Doran will have items for sale from the ship’s store. Those of you traveling by air should lock in your seat and fare as soon as possible because flights will sell out and fares will rise later in the year.
