The reunion was changed to an informal Gathering. It was planned to be an informal get-together but we had a great turnout of 72 people!
The Gathering began on Sunday, 8 October 2017. Normally we started our reunions on Thursday but this worked out better financially for the reunion.

This was also an early bird day although many attendees arrived early. The attendees explored Charleston on their own and joined together for a group dinner at the Crab Shack at Folly Beach.

We did not have a flag presentation ceremony due to the informal nature of the gathering.
