Mailers will soon be sent for the upcoming 2014 Harper-Boyd Reunion. We are behind the curve on getting our mailers out as we know they are typically sent the later part of the year prior. However, we spent a significant amount of time updating content and securing a venue for our busy metropolitan area.
The reunion is scheduled for August 8-10, 2014 and will be held at the Residence Inn Arlington Capital View.
Some of you may remember the 2008 Harper-Boyd Reunion held at the Residence Inn Pentagon City. However, this is not the same hotel. In fact, this hotel didn’t exist in 2008. The Residence Inn Arlington Capital View opened 2010 and is situated at the 28th block of South Potomac Avenue in Arlington, just south of the Crystal City dining and business districts, the hotel is connected to the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel and is minutes from the offices of PBS, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and government agencies like the Pentagon and Environmental Protection Agency.
Unfortunately, the registration fee will be $150 for adults ages 19 and over; and $65 for ages 4-18. This may seem as a significant amount but if you consider the $99 hotel rate (including breakfast) for the Washington, DC area you will get a great experience for a small premium over past reunions.
We’re hoping to get a great turn out but understand some of our core reunion guests, that participate year-to-year, may not be in a position to travel, for either reasons due to health or financial. Therefore, to keep this great tradition alive we’re relying upon the participation of more family members from all generations — great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, and children to participate.
