EVERYTHING IS READY, WE JUST NEED YOU!!
Everything has now been set for our 29th annual Reunion in Baton Rouge, LA. This year our Reunion will be held from Wednesday, October 24 – Sunday, October 28, 2018 at the Embassy Suites Baton Rouge, 4914 Constitution Avenue, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70808 where every two-room suite features a private living room, flat-screen TVs and a separate bedroom. As with all Embassy Suites you will enjoy a free made-to-order breakfast every morning which includes a cook-to-order egg/omelet station and snacks and drinks are complimentary every night from 5:30 to 7:30 during an Evening Reception. Our rate will be $119.00 plus tax of 14% and is good three (3) days prior to and following the reunion, on a space available basis. This means if you want to come early or stay later, call and make your reservations as soon as possible. The hotel’s phone number is (225) 924-6566. You can also make your own reservations online at:
If you are coming to the reunion but are not staying at the hotel, you must pay for your breakfast. Self-parking is free and airport transportation will be free and is available through the hotel who contracts with Uber.
Our schedule will be: Wednesday evening (Welcome Social in the Hotel’s Bar area and in our Hospitality Suite), Thursday (a day in New Orleans where we will have free time in the French Quarter for shopping & lunch on your own, and a visit to the World War II Museum – with a step-on guide), Friday (90 minute Swamp Tour boat ride followed by our traditional Limburger Cheese Social), and Saturday morning after our General Meeting (Capital Park Museum, the USS Kidd Veterans Museum, and the State Capital Building – again, with a step-on guide). Additionally, Thursday/Friday evenings are open so we can have individual ship gatherings.
The Saturday night banquet dinner will be preceded by photographs by Classic Imaging and followed by our annual raffle and 50/50 drawing. We also have the Choupique Cajun Band and Les Danseurs de la Capitale de Baton Rouge, the Cajun French Music Association dance troupe, to entertain us. In addition to performing for us, they encourage participation by teaching us how to Cajun dance.
