And you are welcome to attend the Board of Directors meeting on Saturday the 10th at the AMEDDC&S.  We hope that you and your classmates are planning to attend!

If you are coming from out of town and are not planning on staying with family or friends, we recommend you stay at the Drury Inn and Suites Airport.  They have a free airport shuttle which will also take you to places close by like car rentals, Wal-Mart, and restaurants.  The room rate includes a hot breakfast buffet as well as an afternoon "Kick Back" happy hour with drinks and a food buffet that can easily be your dinner if you wish.  For about $100 a night, it is hard to beat!  You can book online at www.druryhotels.com or call the hotel directly at 210-308-8100.

 

Other Suggested Things to Do:  In your "free time" we'd also suggest you visit the AMEDD Museum (next to the Wurzbach Gate).  The River Walk is always about 10 degrees cooler than street level and the boat captains are pretty entertaining.   Also, the SAS Factory Outlet and Country Store.  This is located at the original factory.  They sell shoes and other things.  The sales ladies actually WAIT ON YOU like in the olden days!  Nickel soda, 10 cent popcorn, antique cars, porches.  It is a GREAT outing!!  https://www.facebook.com/SASGeneralStore/  Located on the south side at the corner of Nogalitos and Zarzamora.

 

If you have any questions about the reunion, please do not hesitate to contact Jeannie Bryan Coe, Class of '74 at jbryancoe@mindspring.com OR 210-601-6132.
