Hello Shipmates and Associate Members:
This newsletter provides you with vital information about our highly anticipated 2020 USS Hancock CV/CVA Reunion
in Charleston, South Carolina. The time frame differs a bit from previous Reunions, because by confirming Sunday,
August 30 for check-in and Friday, September 4 for check-out, we received a $109.00 per night hotel rate -- a reduction
of $100 per night.
Please note: Sunday, August 30th, is our sign-in date, and it gives you a day to relax from your travels to Charleston.
On Monday, August 31st, our day starts at 9:00 a.m. with a Memorial Service on the deck of the USS Yorktown, followed
by a tour of the Yorktown and the historic Patriots Point. We'll have a fun lunch at "The Crab Shack."
Tuesday, Sept. 1, you'll enjoy the Magnolia Plantation Tour, listed in Travel and Leisure Magazine as one of Charleston's
top attractions. Then at 6:00 o'clock that night, we have the Charleston Dinner Cruise. When you board, you'll

its fun and informative Carriage Tours through the city. The day's activities are your choice.
Thursday at 11:00 am, we have our Board of directors meeting, followed at 1:00 pm general membership meeting, where
you will vote on where our next reunion will be held as well as other Association matters. We are free until 6:00
pm for the cocktail hour before the Reunion dinner.
On Friday, September 4th, we'll tell our long-time and new-found friends goodbye. The hotel is booked for Labor
Please double check your travel days, so they coincide with the hotel's schedule.
We've worked with numerous parties to put this great reunion together. It is vital that you make plans as soon
as possible and be sure to contact old shipmates and friends to invite them to share this reunion with you. We
are looking forward to seeing you all. Safe travels.
