2007 MRFA/9th InfDiv Reunion

at the Adam's Mark Hotel in Indianapolis, IN


As some of you may know we will not be using the Drawbridge Inn at Fort Mitchell, Kentucky for our future reunions.

Some of you may go back as far as 1994-95 when we had reunions at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, KY. Our first time in Louisville in 1994 was what we called a "Gathering of the Troops". The association had no registration fee, no meals, no dance etc.

We did the same thing in 1996 at the Drawbridge Inn and everyone truly enjoyed themselves. It was a way to introduce the membership to the hotel and surrounding area. 

A few of your officers and board members visited the Adam's Mark Hotel a few months back and thought it would be a great place for a Gathering of Troops in 2006 and a Reunion in 2007. We will have a hospitality room with snacks and beverages and Bob may want to pump a few products. Again, there will be no registration fee, buffet or dance. If you live in the area and don't want to use the Adam's Mark Hotel that's your call. All Members and guest are welcome no matter where they stay. We just ask that you come and enjoy our new hotel and new city. I don't believe you will be disappointed.
