DATE: Friday & Saturday April 8th & 9th, 2011
LOCATION: Magnolia Hotel 1100 Texas Avenue, Houston, TX 77002
Tel: 713 221-0011
Saturday luncheon – 2nd Floor 12:30-2:30 $40.00 per person
INFORMATION: The Magnolia Hotel is in the old Shell building across from the Christ Church Cathedral and less than one block from the old Rice Hotel. The hotel is close to the rail line which can take you out to Hermann Park or Reliant Stadium, and it is within walking distance of Minute Maid Park and the Toyota Center.
The hotel will block rooms for both Friday and Saturday nights at a total cost per night of $129.00 which includes a full American breakfast, two drinks (beer or wine) during Happy Hour at the bar on the 2nd floor, cookies and milk at bedtime as well as all of the taxes. You need to call hotel reservations directly at 888 915-1110 and identify yourself as part of our group.
Reduced rates are also available for the one-bedroom suite and the studio suite for those that might be interested. Check with the hotel or call me for the quoted rates. The reduced rates will be protected from March 1st – March 25th, and the rates would apply to three days before and after the event for those desiring a longer trip down memory lane in downtown Houston.
Overnight parking at the hotel is $18.00 and event parking is $7.00 for up to 8 hours. Street parking is sometimes available on the weekend across from the hotel beside the church.
We hope you will make hotel reservations for Friday night and gather in the 2nd floor lounge about 7:00pm for a casual visit. Drinks and appetizers can be ordered individually, but there is no full dinner menu available. However, there are lots of great restaurants nearby on the ground floor of the Rice Hotel/condo complex.
Please send payment for the buffet luncheon to Sue Pope/13661 Lakeside Place/Willis, TX 77318. Be sure to include the name of your spouse or guest so we can have name tags ready for your arrival. You can call Sue at 936 890-7998 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Last minute reservations will be available on a limited basis so please make plans in advance.
If you know of anyone who has not received this information, let us know. We are including the classes of ’55 and ’57, but please share our information with anyone we have missed. We have had a large committee working diligently to get the word out to as many Mustangs as we can find. Don’t miss this opportunity to see all your “old” friends.
SEE YOU SOON!
55th Reunion Committee
