enfeedia RSS feed publisher FeedBack ( 0) Hello to all SME62 Lancers! { corrections included }
Get excited! We are looking forward to a great 55th Reunion, Oct 6-7, 2017. More than a reunion, it will be a fun Kansas City vacation adventure, even for the locals. In fact, we're so excited we wish we could just go ahead and have the reunion now. Future updates will also come through this feed alert from our website. Please remain registered in order to receive them. {Note that this item is being re-posted 8-7-2016 to force email alert so that everyone can see the corrections made on 8-4-2016.

We will meet and greet and have a "deli" supper and cash bar Friday, October 6th, 2017 at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center. Saturday night, October 7th, we have contracted the entire Milano restaurant for a wonderful Italian dinner buffet/cash bar in the Crown Center Shops, just a block from the Sheraton. All for just $140 each! During the day Saturday, you can visit with old friends, and explore the area. Use the free KC Streetcar line ( kcstreetcar.org/about-streetcar ), or the hop-on, hop-off KC DoubleDecker Tour Bus ( www.kcdoubledeckertours.com ), to rediscover KC Downtown, City Market, Union Station, Crossroads, etc! And access tourism site, www.visitkc.com , to be up to date on all things and places "Kansas City".

*********** But, the main reason we are contacting you NOW is to ask you to make hotel reservations. Oct 6-7, 2017 is shaping up to be a very busy KC weekend -- Sheraton already filling up. We have contracted for a block of 30 rooms at the Sheraton at a very good discount - $159+applicable taxes, 1-2 people, KS bed or 2 double. Reservations need to be made for these rooms before we can add more to the block. Your credit card will hold the room but will not be charged until you check in. Please reserve your rooms now, at no risk. To do that, copy/paste this link into your web browser: www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/ShawneeMissionEastClassRoomBlock .

Or, if you prefer talking to a human (to use Starwood guest points, other discounts, or if using iPad or iPhone), use this phone number (816-841-1000), and specify reservations for the "Shawnee Mission East Class of 62 Room Block". Note that you can also use the group block to reserve for up to 3 additional nights before and after the reunion dates, at the same much reduced rate! Cancellations are allowed, without penalty, up to 24 hours before first check-in date. **********
