To the Membership - Rearding the Cancelation of the upcoming Alumni Conference in Natural Bridge
Due to the continuing health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 threat and uncertainty regarding the operating status, we feel it is prudent to cancel the upcoming Alumni Conference scheduled for June 6, 2020 at Natural Bridge Historic Hotel & Conference Center in Natural Bridge. Hopefully this epidemic will be behind us and we can gather for our next scheduled conference on November 14, 2020 at Four Points by Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Details regarding this conference will be coming out in our fall/winter Grapevine.
The Alumni Board of Directors, Division Representatives and Appointees agreed with this decision. For those members that have Pre-Paid the Registration Required you have two choices for the money you paid to attend the spring/summer conference. Leave the money you paid and it will be applied for our next conference. If the cost of our next conference should be more than was paid for this conference that will be posted in our next Grapevine and you may pay any difference. If any member wishes to have their money returned please contact our treasurer, Phyllis Allgood, 208 Melonie Drive, Chesapeake, VA 23322. Phyllis' email is firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact me on my cell (804) 514-8877 or email RMM158@verizon.net. We want to make this as convenient for our members as we can. Also, we suggest you contact Natural Bridge Historic Hotel & Conference Center at (540) 291-2121 to confirm your reservations have been cancelled.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Message from Bob McCulloch, Alumni President
After careful thought, consideration and concerns about the Corvonavirus (COVID-19) we feel it is best to cancel our conference scheduled for April 25, 2020. We have spent much time and work coordinating a new date for our conference and it is now scheduled for June 6, 2020. Management at Natural Bridge Historical Hotel & Conference Center cooperated with Dave Copley and we were able to keep the same room rates and other expenses for our conference. Deadline to obtain rooms is May 4, 2020. Reservations made after this date will be subject to availability and room rates are NOT GUARANTEED!! Many reservations have been rolled over and I encourage you to make your reservations now. We feel there will be a large attendance due to the time of year and excellent room rates.
For the convenience of our members that had made reservations we rolled those reservation dates over automatically for June 6th and or another date of preference. For those that wish to cancel or any member that has not made reservations please call Natural Bridge Historic Hotel & Conference Center at (540) 291-2121. The code to use for making or canceling reservations is VSP05.
I encourage you to attend our conference because this will be a beautiful time of year to get away and socialize, renew old acquaintances and friendships. Remember the room cost of $89.00 + tax including breakfast hasn't changed which were the same as posted in the Spring 2020 Grapevine (Click to Open the Grapevine Newsletter).
