Reunion banquet reservations still being accepted

The Col. Truman Crawford reunion banquet committee would like to thank everyone in the drum and bugle corps community, those associated with our Armed Forces, and the family and friends of Col. Truman Crawford for the wholehearted response to and support for the banquet they have received thus far. The Hershey Lodge and Convention Center is working closely with the committee to host a gala evening. On March 22 they will salute the drum corps world’s “music man” with much camaraderie, music and remarks from a host of Americans and Canadians.

Requests for reservations are being received at a very fast clip. February 22 is the deadline for getting all room reservations in for the event. For room reservations, they need a credit card number with the expiration date.

A reception will be held on the evening of March 21, the reunion banquet March 22 and a breakfast March 23. For attendance at any or all of these three events the reunion committee needs a check or money order no later than March 14. They cannot reserve these events using a credit card. For all of the information needed to make a reservation, visit their Web site at www.TruCrawfordReunion.com.

The committee apologizes for any confusion regarding the January 15 date they stressed earlier, but they were required to put a deposit down at the hotel by that date. To all who sent in their reservations so quickly go their sincere thanks because this allowed the committee to meet its hotel requirement. There is still plenty of time to make reservations, but space is limited. Please contact Joel Leson at jleson@hotmail.com or (703) 690-7136, or Linda Walmsley at Reb1Lady@aol.com or (703) 490-4619 (evenings) or (703) 909-7872 (cell phone, anytime) for information or with questions.

“Linda and I have had the privilege of speaking to many of you, and if your enthusiasm and desire to be present to salute Col. Crawford and his family are any example of what we can expect on March 22, this will be a very special evening,” Leson said.
