Reunion Chair Tracey Hays reports - “I am waiting for the contract so I can't give you pricing for the dinner and picnic. The hotel has agreed to rooms at $109 plus tax for the reunion."

 "Dates are still 9-12 October 2018. The location is Lexington Hotel & Conference Center (Riverwalk) on Prudential Drive. I will create a sign-up sheet as soon as I see the contract, and will ensure it is on the AOM website.”

“I have a different POC for the picnic. As soon as I get pricing I will send it out. The good news is if we book 40 rooms and spend $2500 in food/beverage, our meeting rooms and hospitality are free... and parking would be reduced from $15 to$5.”
