Hotel Reservations:
Each person is responsible for reserving their own rooms.  The cost is $119.00 + any applicable hotel tax etc.  Please book with the Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina Hotel. We are contracted so many rooms and need to meet this quota.  All of the details is on the http://www.mcfaddenfamilyreunion12.com website.  Please be sure to use the hotel link on our family website and if you have any problems or questions when trying to reserve your room, please contact the hotel and let them know that you are with the McFadden Whaley Family Reunion party.

Also, if you do not have the IGH Hotel Rewards card I do encourage you to sign up for this card on the hotel website and receive hotel rewards credit.  It is a free rewards card. 

Fundraiser:
Sharon will be mailing out the fundraisers on this week.  Some of you may have received them by now.If you haven’t please contact Sharon right away. We encourage all family members to please participate.  This helps in offsetting some of the cost that we incur.  Herb & Christine were the first prize winners on last year and Janae Peoples was the second prize winner.

Itinerary and Prizes:
We will have the same prizes as last year.   More information will follow on this and the itinerary at a later date.
