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
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
We hope to see you at the reunion.
