The 2024 USS Lloyd Thomas Houston/Galveston Reunion has been scheduled for April 18th through the 21st.

We reached an agreement with the Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake hotel located at 3000 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX 77058.   The hotel will offer us rooms at $139.00 per night, and will include breakfast for two per room.

Thursday, April 18th will be our Check In Day, with a Welcome Buffet available at 6 PM.

Our schedule will include a visit to the NASA Historic Mission Control Center at Johnson Space Center on Friday, April 19th.

On Saturday, April 20, we will visit Moody Gardens on Galveston Island, do some sightseeing and conduct our Memorial Service at the Galveston Naval Museum at Sea Wolf Park.

Sunday, April 21 will be a free morning, with a business meeting in the afternoon, and the Farewell Banquet that evening.

I know that these dates are not convenient for some of our most loyal reunion attendees, but  these were the best dates for the hotel, and considering other events happening in the area around the end of April.

Hotel and event information will follow as soon as we have event schedules and confirmations. If you are planning to attend, please let us know by email at lloydthomas@atlanticbb.net, as that will help with numbers planning.

If you plan on flying, Mike recommends Southwest Airlines into Houston Hobby Airport (HOU), rather than Bush International (IAH), which is on the other side of Houston from our hotel.  Hobby is still a distance from the hotel, but not as bad as IAH.

BY THE WAY . . .

If you missed the 2023 Annapolis reunion, you can see a little of what you missed in my “Highlights of the 2023 Annapolis Reunion.” All my reunion summaries are found in our main menu under Reunions -> Summary of Past Reunions (or just click here.)

And furthermore . . .

Photo books for Dayton (2022) and Annapolis (2023) are now available. There are also links to these and others on our “Bulletin Board” on the right side of our Home Page.
