We have great news about the 2014 reunion. We will be celebrating 25 years, and will be doing so in a big way.  We will be moving into the Ballroom.  Come and experience cloth napkins, real dinnerware and entertainment.  Best of all, we will not be limited to 200 people. This is your chance to come and celebrate our Silver Anniversary in Grand Style. The Friday night BYOB will still be limited to 115.

Just wanted to give everyone an update on the Association reunion for 2014. 

A milestone like this demands something special and to that end we will move into the Grand Ballroom at the Bahia Shrine for next year. Not only will we have better decor, we'll have much more room. You will also be enjoying a full sit down meal. Your dinner choices will be Champagne Chicken, Meat Lasagna or Vegetable Lasagna. Your meal will start with a Garden Salad and Dinner Rolls. Entrees are served with Garlic Green Beans and Red Roasted Potatoes. Desert will consist of specially decorated sheet cakes and an Ice Cream Station. Coffee, Ice Tea, Lemonade, Soda and Beer are included in the still just $25 per person price. The festivities start at Noon on Saturday March 1, 2014 and the Bahia Shrine Concert Band will be performing from noon to 4pm. Dress is Casual, but awards will be given for best period attire. What does this mean? Dress for the period that you worked. Example: If you worked in the 60's and 70's dress like people did back then. This is totally optional. Other awards and prizes will be given as in the past. 
What not to expect for 2014: A cup, blanket or something similar at check-in. In order to keep the cost at $25, those gifts had to be eliminated.
Maybe you have never made it to the Annual FART Reunion. Perhaps you have been contemplating coming for years. The 2014 reunion is what you have been waiting for. Bigger, better and something that will be talked about for years. Your FART Board and Reunion Committee have been working hard to give you the best reunion ever. 
Good News:  Since we will be in the Grand Ballroom, the reunion is not limited to 200 people as in the past. However, the BYOB Welcome Reception at the Homewood Suites Friday Night is limited to the first 115. The welcome reception is $10 per person. Soda will be provided and there will be an assortment of finger foods. 
We hope to see you at the reunion.
