Hopefully by now everyone knows that we’re having a reunion in Newport,
RI in October, over Columbus Day Weekend. We’re booked into the
magnificent Viking Hotel. We’ve reserved a block of 75 rooms for Friday
and Saturday of that weekend, and the Viking Hotel gave us a
much-reduced price of $229 a night. To date, though many more
people have assured us that they are coming, only 37 rooms have been
booked for a total of 65 people. The Viking understands that the
economy is a factor for all of us, and this week the hotel has agreed
to reduce our block of rooms without penalty. However, they will
do this only once.
In a few weeks, we must commit to a new number of rooms, and release
the rest of the block back to the hotel for sale. Once we agree
on the new number, the reunion committee is responsible for meeting
that number and must pay the hotel for any room that is not
booked. Conversely, anyone who wishes to book a room after all
the rooms are accounted for, will no longer get the reduced rate.
By June 1st we have to give the hotel our final count. So, if you are
planning to attend the reunion, and have not already done so, now is
the time to book your room. After that date you will have to pay
the higher room rate. Don’t forget that when you book a room, you don’t
have to pay for it at that time. - your credit card is only used to
hold the room until you check in.
Thank you for giving this your attention. Attached are the Reunion
Information Package and Registration Form. If you have any questions,
please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope we see you in Newport in October!
LONDON CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL
COLUMBUS DAY WEEKEND, OCT 5 – 7, 2012
WELCOME TO NEWPORT! IT’S TIME FOR FALL FOLIAGE, HAVE A LOBSTER, TOUR A
MANSION, STROLL THE CLIFF WALK AND SEE OLD FRIENDS IN THE HOTEL WHERE
JFK AND JACKIE HONEYMOONED. FINALLY, A LONDON CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL
REUNION ON THE EAST COAST!
The reunion is at the magnificent Hotel Viking on Bellevue Avenue in
Newport. Rated as one of the most beautiful hotels in the country, the
Viking is within walking distance of most of what Newport has to offer.
The reunion is over Columbus Day weekend, and room rates for Friday and
Saturday nights are $229.00. The hotel is offering us a $199.00 rate
for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday for those who might want to
extend their stay and spend more time in the Newport area. The room
rate is based on a two-night stay and we ask that if you are planning
to attend that you stay at least the nights of Oct. 5 and 6. Those are
the dates we committed to when we signed the agreement with the hotel.
You can make your reservation on-line at http://www.hotelviking.com/ or
by calling 1-800-556-7126. Be sure to tell the reservation agent that
you are with the London Central High School Reunion.
The hotel is also known for its full-service spa, SpaTerre. If
you are interested in any of the spa services, please make your
reservations early, as space is limited. Information on the many
services can be found on the website.
The closest airport is Providence, Rhode Island. Once here,
there’s no need for a car – Cozy Cab leaves the airport bound for
Newport every two hours, and is only $25. Make sure to make
reservations before arriving at (800) 846-1502.
