The U.S.S. O'Callahan's next reunion willb e held in Boston, Mass, in 2008, at the Charleston Navy yard, from July 11th to the 14th. Boston has been picked to celebrate our 40th year anniversary of the O'Callahan's commissioning which was July 13th, 1968.
Room Accomodations have been arranged and will be at the CONSTITUTION INN which is in the Navy Yard. The rooms will cost $79.00 per day. If you wish to come early or stay later than our reunion dates, the rate will remain the same - BUT you will need to make arrangements with the inn when you make your reservations. Our banquet site has not been decided yet.
There are restaurants in the Navy Yard as well as in and around Boston proper for your convenience aside from the banquet.
The Navy Yard houses the U.S.S. Constitution and the U.S.S. Cassin Young (DD 973), both historical landmarks open to tours. The Navy Yard is still functioning.
Are you all interested in our "White Elephant Auction"? It would help make money for our collapsing bank account. We are open to suggestions of any kind to help make this a great reunion.
