Subject: Veterans day - Hotel Reservation Reminder


Could you send out an email on the MRFA email distribution remainding people that if they plan to have reservations at the hotel they need to make them ASAP? The cut off date in 29 October and the hotel will not honor the reduced rates for reservations made after.

It would be helpful that those attending make their reservations by 27 October.

In brotherhood,
