Again, Welcome.

Larry Abernathy, Family Reunion President

DATE FOR THE 48TH FAMILY REUNION:  JULY 19-22 2018

Below is the link to the Registration Form for the Family Reunion.

All the costs and deadlines are on the form.  https://goo.gl/forms/DFnnenjPrk8MG5zw1  
 

 

The hotel: Embassy Suites - 300 Tallapoosa St., Mont., Al. 36104

Thank you for selecting Embassy Suites as host hotel for your upcoming event.  Your group has been assigned a group code to alleviate confusion during the reservation process.  The code assigned to your group is AFR .  This code may be used when booking at 1-800-Embassy (362-2779), online at www.embassysuites.com, or by calling the hotel directly at 334-269-5055 Ext. 1092.    Date are July 19 - 22, 2018.  THIS DEAL IS SOLD OUT.

Due to an unanticipated large number of family reunions taking place in Montgomery on the same weekend as our famiy reunion, we are unable to obtain additional blocks of rooms.   But we are asking you to  make reservations at this hotel with a rate of $174.00 a night for a standard king or two double bed suites if you use your AARP coupon.   Even if you are uncertain about attending the reunion, I still suggest that you make reservations as soon as possible.  If you are unable to attend, you can still cancel the reservation 48 hours prior to the event without any financial penalty.   If you wait close to our reunion date, there may not be any rooms available at this hotel.  Please pass this information along to all family members who may not have received it.  Again, I cannot over emphasize the need for early hotel room reservations. 

PARKING  

There is currently a charge of $14 plus tax for guest’s overnight self-parking.  Valet parking is available for $21 plus tax per day.   This is subject to change at any time.    

We only have a certain number of rooms blocked off and cannot block off additional rooms until these are booked. Therefore we urge you to make your reservations asap, even before the end of lthe year.  You do not have to pay until you arrive.  Fill these rooms so that we can book more rooms.  Thank you.

William Abernathy Jr.

 Dear Family,

We have researched some additional hotels for the upcoming family reunion.

The hotels are: Candlewood Suites 334-277-0677 1 bed - $89/per night 2 bed - $94/per night Suite - $114/per night which includes a full kitchenette Holiday Inn Express & Suites 334-271-5516 (Free Breakfast) Dbl Queen - $103/per night King - $108/per night King Suite - $126/per night Fairfield Inn & Suites 334-260-8650 $129 on 7/19/18 $149 on 7/20 & 7/21 add $20 to rate for a suite Senior rates (60 over) $105.40 (7/19) $135.15 (7/20,21) The hotel staff stated that these are the present rates and will probably go up as the dates get closer. Therefore, early booking is highly recommended in order to receive the above listed rates.

Sincerely,

William Abernathy
