Reunion Information


REUNION XV

USS Alexander Hamilton Reunion XV
New London/Groton, CT
October 9-13, 2024.


LATEST UPDATE FROM THE REUNION COORDINATOR 11/19/23

Plans for the 2024 Alexander Hamilton crew reunion are underway. Our coordinator, Paul Skalski, sent the following:

"New England is beautiful in October, but can be expensive so I'm trying to keep attendees' costs down. There is plenty to do in the area all within 20 miles of Groton. I have a list of attractions which I will beef up a little more. Looking at doing a Sub School graduation and possible boat tour on Friday pending Sub School's 2024 graduation schedule and boat availability. If everything lines up, we could have a graduation class named 'Alexander Hamilton'. Saturday's closing banquet could be held at the Sub Vets Club House... depending on the number of shipmates who sign up to attend. The auction could be held at the hotel or moved to the Sub Vet Club House."
"Clutch" Koogler added that Paul is looking at area hotels and will be meeting with hotel reps to determine what hotels best offer what we need... reasonably priced rooms, allow us to bring our own refreshment for the hospitality area, etc. Also updated information should be available soon and "Clutch" distribute it as soon as he receives it from Paul...at least we now have dates to plan around.

That's all for now...more to come!

This will provide us up front money for the next reunion, mailing costs, etc. Membership also gives shipmates a vote in any decisions that will be made with regard to the Association. Please send your dues $$ to Jim Koogler's address above. We thank you for your continued support.
