Dinner/Dance

We are so excited about the dinner and dance we have planned.  The Westin Alexandria Old Town is located at 400 Courthouse Square, Alexandria, Virginia.  The event hours are 6:00-11:00 p.m. to give us plenty of time for relaxing conversations, delicious dinner fare and dancing like we were 18 again!  We have also planned a special photo booth area with fun props for selfies with old and new friends.

The band, The Roadducks, is a Northern Virginia favorite, playing a variety of styles, most notably southern rock.  They will entertain us with fun dance and party music.  You can check out their website at www.theroadducks.com.

We have chosen a fabulous buffet with delicious soups, salads, beef, salmon, and desserts, and a cash bar.  Be sure to come hungry!

The cost for the Saturday evening dinner/dance is $110 per person Please mail a check to Susan Homar by the deadline of August 15 (see page 2).  Parking at The Westin for the dinner/dance is at a reduced rate of $12, payable at the hotel the night of the event.  Attire is business casual.

 

We cannot wait to reunite with all of you!  Please join us to re-engage, relax, revisit old friendships, and make new ones.  The more who return, the better and merrier it will be. 

We are looking forward to seeing you!
