STORM SAVANNAH!

23rd Annual Aerial Rocket Artillery Association Reunion

August 31 - September 4, 2020

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS MONDAY - THURSDAY

       Join us in Savannah, the oldest city in the state of Georgia. Established in 1733 on the banks of the Savannah River, it was the British colonial capital of the {then} Provence of Georgia and later the first capital of the state. It was a strategic port during the American Revolution and during the American Civil War.


     Reunion headquarters will be the Holiday Inn Express located at 199 East Bay Street, one block off River Street in the Historic District. Information for booking is available in the Jan/Feb/Mar and Apr/May/Jun issues of the "Straphanger." Reunion rate for a Double Queen or a King Bed room is $119.00 + tax. The $119.00 is the rate for Sunday through Thursday and changes for Friday and Saturday to a higher weekend rate. Our Reunion Host is attempting to get a reduced weekend rate for early or late extensions.The higher weekend rate is the reason for changing to Monday - Thursday. To get a look at the hotel google Holiday Inn Express Savannah Historic District.


     As the oldest city in Georgia it is full of HISTORY and Savannah offers something for everyone. Tour the city on foot (if you are up to it) or by trolley, horse drawn carriage, or golf car. A walk along River Street is a must, with its monuments, shops, restaurants, and pubs. Go out on the river for a lunch, sunset, or dinner/entertainment cruise or take a dolphin tour. Know as the most HAUNTED city in the nation there are numerous cemetery tours, day and night, including one with connections to "The DaVinci Code" and featured in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." One tour is even done in a real hearse and there is also a "Haunted Pub Crawl." There are forts and military museums including the Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force. I would be remiss if I did not mention that Savannah is also famous for dining and several culinary tours are available. As usual - additional tours can be arranged through the hotel or done individually. For more information go to www.savannah.com.


     This is only a teaser of things to come and our host and hostess, Jerry and Ann Hipp have an exciting agenda laid out with full details in the April/May/June newsletter. Make your reservations and join us!
