Updates to the Reunion for the Sons and Daughters of Douglass on Friday June 30th, Saturday July 1st and Sunday July 2nd:
Questions have come up about reserving rooms.. although you're free to book hotel reservations with any hotel of your choosing, the new Fairfield Hotel at 2485 South Wilcox Drive, Kingsport, Tennessee 37660 is the hotel that the Douglass Board has special price accommodations worked out.. BUT...
You're not able to book reservations under the special rate just yet. You cannot reserve a room until May 15th, according to the hotel's agreement with us. You also have to use this special code to get the special rate:
S & D 301
Use that code when you make your reservation on May 15th or after at the Fairfield Hotel. Again, you are free to reserve rooms anywhere you like, but the special rate will be at the new Fairfield Hotel in Kingsport.
We have compiled excellent food menus for the Alumni Saturday afternoon gathering, the Alumni Banquet that night, and have assembled tentative speakers for the Saturday night banquet in the Douglass Community Room at V.O. Dobbins, and also the Sunday afternoon Memorial Service at the Central Baptist Church.
At your earliest convenience, please let us know that you'll be attending the Reunion, so that we we can get an accurate count for food, accommodations and attendance. Just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or let us know when you send your $50.00 alumni dues to:
