Hello Crockett Kin and Friends!
Happy Summer to all my Crockett Cousins and friends! We have already had several 100° days here in central Texas. Linda and I have spent the last few months attending baseball games of our grandsons. I know many of you have experienced similar activities. Hopefully, your weather has been better than ours.
We have news of the 2024 Crockett family reunion. I have been working to get the date set with the Crockett Hotel for rooms and the Menger Hotel for the banquet. I am happy to announce the Board of Directors approved the reunion to take place July 18th to July 21st of 2024, in San Antonio at The Alamo. The negotiated rates are some of the best negotiated prices for this venue that we have seen.
I am so excited for all of you to have the opportunity to see the huge changes to The Alamo. They recently completed the Front Gate and Barracks rebuild. There is a fantastic new museum on the grounds now. They have closed the vehicle traffic in front and removed the plaza to open up the overall experience of all things Alamo. Every day brings them closer to making The Alamo a world class historical site that honors those that died, including our esteemed ancestor, David Crockett at the Alamo in March of 1836. The Reunion Committee will be planning a reunion experience to ensure all attendees go away talking about it for years to come. Anyone who wishes to assist with the Reunion planning can contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call at 918-327-4218. I challenge each of you to reach out to those who have not attended in a while and especially those that have never attended and urge them to join us and experience the all-new Alamo Experience! Here are some basic details for now. More details will come as we get closer to reunion time.
