Holiday Inn Spearfish - Convention Center
August 20-22, 2021
The 2021 Reunion will honor and celebrate the ship's 50th anniversary of commissioning. The original plan was to do this in the Seattle, Washington area the weekend of August 26th-29th, 2021. Unfortunately events in the area earlier this year have led to a change of the host city. The safety and concern for our shipmates and their guests are always of the utmost importance when planning the reunions.
The 2020 Reunion Committee hopes that we can have a safe and fun Reunion.
The venue, banquet hall, and hospitality suite are set, menu picked, photographer in place – and even entertainment (which you will love!)! A special memorial is in the works for the shipmates lost. This reunion’s fundraiser is “A Ship Store” where you can order from the samples that will be on hand of custom designed USS Downes items. Some of the items are shirts, hats, hoodies, metal works, coffee cups and more! The monies raised will be used to fund future USS Downes reunions. A 50/50 Raffle, plus a few surprises along the way. It will be a reunion like no other!
They are only waiting for the shipmates to join in on the fun, smiles and the laugh this reunion is sure to bring!
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO PACK YOUR SMILES AND YOUR HUGS!!!
