More than 60 veterans and guests of the USS Forrest B. Royal reunited in Portland, Maine this past week for their bi-annual reunion. The host hotel was the Best Western Merry Manor Inn where the service is friendly and the accommodations are comfortable and affordable. The complimentary breakfast each day was a hit, as was the inviting hospitality room stocked with snacks and drinks.
The group enjoyed a busy but fun reunion. On Friday, they headed up to Bath, Maine for a guided cruise around Bath Iron Works and a tour of the Maine Maritime Museum. After lunch in Freeport, most visited LL Bean’s flagship store. Once Saturday’s business meeting was complete, a trolley picked the group up to explore Portland. After lunch in Old Port, they saw the childhood home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Bug Light, the Liberty Ships Memorial, as well as other notable landmarks. The Banquet at the hotel wrapped up the event on Saturday evening, and most headed home w/ fond memories and high hopes for the next reunion.
Armed Forces Reunions, Inc has been honored to plan their reunions for the last twenty years including events in Washington, DC, Buffalo, Norfolk, Branson, Charleston, and more.
