DTW/SOAP 7th Annual Reunion 6/22 and 6/23 2011
The 7th Annual DTW/SOAP Reunion moved this year from Orlando Florida to Brighton Michigan. We gathered at the Courtyard Marriott with 33 attendees, and the two days were a rousing success. In addition to Michiganders, some others traveled from Florida, South Carolina, Arizona, New Mexico and Ohio. All were on their own during the day to pursue golf, shopping, strolling through a beautiful nearby park, driving to Frankenmuth (known for the fried chicken and year round Christmas store) or just relaxing and enjoying our beautiful rain!!
The first night, we had an informal dinner at a local Irish pub, then returned to the hotel to imbibe and compare stories of our illustrious careers. Our formal (no dress code) dinner was held at a beautiful restaurant and supplemented with individual photographs taken (gratis) by a professional photographer, including an entire group photo. After a fantastic meal, we again returned to our hotel to continue with our storytelling.
We are all looking forward to another enjoyable reunion next year. We welcome all DTW area personnel to join us next year. For further information contact Jim Holtsclaw, 248-305-5967, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Bob Ervin, (248) 538-8336, email@example.com
