Make plans now to attend the 28th annual Dingler family reunion in Little Rock, AR. When making reservations at La Quinta Inn, please specify that you are with the Dingler reunion to receive the special rate of $74.00 plus tax (a substantial discount from the normal rates of $99-$149). This is a large, recently renovated hotel in downtown Little Rock. Please make your room reservations by June 20, 2007 to ensure that you receive the special rate.

The hotel will provide a hospitality room large enough for 50 to 60 people. This 12th floor room, with nice views of Little Rock and vicinity, will be available for us all day Friday and Saturday. On Saturday night, we will have our annual meeting, following a banquet. The event will take place in a spacious church fellowship hall only 2 blocks from our hotel. Cost for the meal will be $15.00 per person. Glen and Jessie Dingler are to be commended for their diligence in arranging for the hotel and banquet.

Little Rock offers a number of attractions. Obviously, the new Clinton Library is now a major tourist destination. A trolley line, the River Rail Electric Streetcar, connects our hotel area to the Clinton Library, as well as the Riverfront District, a noted restaurant and entertainment area along the Arkansas River. The State Capital, Governor’s Mansion, several museums, and a submarine (the USS Arkansas) are all close by. If at least 20 people express interest in touring the Clinton Library, we can arrange for a guided tour.

So, please make your hotel reservations by June 20th. If you plan to attend the banquet, please call, write or drop me an email at tcowan@jcowaninc.com. If you are interested in the guided tour of the Clinton Library, let me know, as well. If it has been a few years since you last attended a family reunion, then 2007 would be an excellent opportunity to become reacquainted with the extended family.
