HIGHLIGHTS:
A welcome reception on Saturday evening hosted by the King Charles Inn kicked off the reunion. On Sunday morning a special SEMMES low country brunch was held at the Inn. Throughout our four day stay in Charleston were many well arranged tours within the Historic District. Along with that we visited several Plantations and  Patriots Points Naval Park which included a mid day lunch aboard the USS Yorktown. The dinner party on Tuesday Dec 10th, the 40th anniv of Semmes commissioning, was highlighted by the presence of Capt Richard Alexander, Adm Robt Welander and Vadm Dave Emerson, the first three CO's of SEMMES. Charleston is a wonderful venue for a reunion.
