As you can see from the following plans for the 2002 reunion, the reunions had something for everybody to enjoy.
MAY 15 – MAY 19, 2002
The holidays are fast approaching and I find myself coordinating our USS Bryant Navy reunion next year.
I have reserved accommodations with the Red Lion Inn located near Seattle easily accessible to local restaurants, shopping malls and tourist sites. I am pleased that they have confirmed a special daily room rate of $89.00. Each attendee will be responsible to call the hotel directly to make your own reservations. To do so, you may call Red Lion at 206.575.8220, or their central reservations system at 1.800.222.8733. They have set up a cut off date of Wednesday, April 24, 2002. Please note when making your reservations to let them know you are a part of the USS Bryant Navy Reunion to quality for the special group rate.
Some of the events and sites we are planning are:
- Wednesday, May 15 we arrive in Seattle and get together that evening in the hospitality room.
- Thursday, May 16, we have arranged in the evening a cruise to Tillicum Village on Blake Island for a tradition dance and dinner show of the Northwest Coast Native Americans. The cost per person for the evening is $54.00.
- Sat, May 18, our annual meeting will be held in the morning and in the evening our banquet.
Transportation is available at an additional cost for all trips planned.
In the months ahead, I will provide more detailed information regarding our reunion. I look forward to our time together in the Seattle area in 2002.
