It is with great enthusiasm and pleasure
we invite you, your family and friends to our 9th Reunion. I
can truly say, as our itinerary unfolds and I learn a bit more
of Philly, Im more impressed with Philly each day and know
youll be equally impressed as well. Its also the
perfect opportunity to rendezvous with the friends and family
you may not see on a regular basis. Another thought, why not
consider giving the grandkids a first hand history lesson in
the exciting city that gave birth to the American Revolution
and American Independence.
If you've been to Philadelphia before,
you already know what an exciting city it is. If youve
never been to Philly, what better time is there to explore the
Liberty Bell, our Constitution, Congress & Independence Hall,
the Avenue of the Arts and so much more youll be sorry
to see our Reunion end. If you never attended a Perry reunion,
what better reason do you need to enjoy the hustle & bustle
of an exciting Historical city? Remember, we're not getting any
younger, so its important to seize the moment when you can and
join your shipmates for a fun filled time. You owe it to yourself
to take this opportunity to cruise down memory lane
and enjoy the sea stories of your fellow shipmates.
To our shipmates who have not yet made
a Perry voyage down memory lane, be assured, youll
be warmly welcomed by all in the city of brotherly love.
After you drop your sea bag on your bunk and join everyone at
our hospitality room it won't take but a few minutes to feel
the camaraderie of everyone and become as comfortable as you
once were aboard the Perry. Just ask any of our lucky shipmates
that continue to attend our reunions, and they will tell you
they are as excited as I am to be joining everyone again for
another great time.
Travel to Philly couldnt be easier.
Its an international airport with direct flights from all
major airports and just 8 miles from our hotel. Shuttle transportation
is plentiful and for the more adventurous sailors, our Hotel
is only a $2 train ride away with a stop across the street from
the hotel. Philly truly appreciates us old Vets and even offers
us free Trolley & Bus rides with your Medicare card. How
about them apples!
As always, early registrations are important
for our effective dealings with the Hotel and tour vendors. If
youll help us out with an early registration, the Perry
Association will give you an opportunity to win a one night stay
and full breakfast on the concierge dining level during your
stay at the hotel. The hotel also has a 24-hour cancellation
policy without penalty so you can book your room ASAP without
As always, our reunion chairman Martin
Deeney has lifted all Cinderella Liberty restrictions
and has a most exciting itinerary waiting for you. What else
can be said, Im glad Im going, glad youre going
and glad well all have the opportunity to reminisce the
Perry yesteryears one more time. Cant wait to see you all
again for that cruise down memory lane. I missed
Pensacola, but God willing Ill be seeing you all in Philly.
Wishing you all a wonderful reunion,
