Alumni Reunion Opportunity, 29-31 May in New Orleans with the World War II Museum!!

The Army PT Alumni Association is planning a reunion event featuring the WWII Museum in New Orleans LA the weekend of 29-31 May!  If you've already been to the museum you most likely want to go again and if you haven't, this is a definite Bucket List  event!  We are working on special pricing for Museum tour tickets as well as reservations  at the Higgins Hotel which is adjacent to the Museum.  Group Activities will include tour tickets, the movie Beyond All Boundaries, Happy Hour get together Friday evening, tours both Saturday and Sunday, Armed Forces Day ceremony  Saturday, dinner and show at the Museum Stage Door Canteen on Saturday and a plated MuseumSunday Brunch at the Museum.  Estimated cost for the weekend and all group activities is about $200 plus your hotel and travel.  If you are near San Antonio, you might consider taking Amtrak .
We are working on special room rates at the Museum's
Higgins Hotel at about $149 a night which is a $20 a night savings.  Depending on how many people participate, rates could be less.  You may decide to book another hotel. Pricing for tours, events and the Higgins Hotel will be dependent on how many people participate. 

 

This is a GREAT opportunity to have a mini reunion with your class or just meet others who with a connection to Army Physical Therapy!  The event is open to everyone, not just Army graduates or alumni members.

To this end, we are asking that you complete this  short SURVEY to help us plan better. We need to have an apporximate number of participants and hotel rooms to reserve NLT 20 Feb 2020.
After that there may be rooms available but no guarantees.
We are not asking for mone at this time, we just want to get a resonably accurate head count.

.  You don't need to send money now.  We are just trying to get a guesstimate count for planning purposes.  Should your plans change down the road, you can go back and change your survey responses.12 Feb 2020 Wednesday, NLTPLEASE respond

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.
