June 11 - 14, Lexington, KY
We’re headed for Lexington, KY. Dates have been set for Thursday through Sunday, June 11 through the 14th.
We will be staying at the Microtel Inn. You can get the best booking price on line here: http://www.trivago.com/?iSemThemeId=4259&iPathId=34552&sem_keyword=list%20of%20hotels%20in%20lexington%20ky&sem_creativeid=54232781446&sem_matchtype=e&sem_network=s&sem_device=c&sem_placement=&sem_target=&sem_adposition=1t2&sem_param1=&sem_param2=&cip=10412001011. A continental breakfast is included, though we will be heading out for breakfasts.
What will we be seeing there besides horses? There’s Ashland, the estate of Henry Clay where there is a granite marker which commemorates 2 companies of the 4th Ohio along with the 3rd Ohio Cavalry being captured by our nemesis John Hunt Morgan ( http://henryclay.org/ ), Mary Todd Lincoln’s House where the future wife of Abraham Lincoln lived in Lexington (http://www.mtlhouse.org/index.html ), John Hunt Morgan’s house (http://www.bluegrasstrust.org/hunt-morgan.html) along with his grave in the Lexington Cemetery ( http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=morgan&GSfn=john&GSmn=hunt&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=19&GScnty=1022&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=4433&df=all& ), and Waveland, an antebellum mansion owned by the grandnephew of frontiersman Daniel Boone (http://parks.ky.gov/parks/historicsites/waveland/history.aspx ).
As with all of our reunions, it should prove to be a tremendous amount of fun. So why not join us this year. We’ll be kicking off the reunion meeting in the coffee shop at the hotel for a Meet N Greet at 6:00 PM. If you see a group of people milling around there, it’ll be us.
