60 Year Reunion Announcement!

W-L Class of '57 & '58 Reunion

Friday,  September  7,  2018

September 7-9, 2018 at the Key Bridge Marriott, Rosslyn, VA  

See Event Early Bird Costs Below - Early Bird Costs Offered Until June 10, 2018  

Your reunion committee has been making plans for a fantastic "Last Hurrah Reunion" weekend with our two classes. Now we’re ready to receive your early-bird registration. We ask that you complete the Survey and Response Form recently sent to you by snail mail or email and return it to us by June 10th. After June 10th we may have to increase the cost depending on how many of you respond to this early-bird request. Organizing any event relies on a good response in order to pay the expenses that began to accrue in January when we signed the contract with the Key Bridge Marriott. We are counting on you to take the worry off our shoulders by responding early.

HOTEL HEADQUARTERS: Our headquarters is the Key Bridge Marriott at 1401 Lee Highway in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington. The hotel is conveniently located a few blocks from the Metro, and within walking distance to Georgetown for hardy souls. If you haven’t done so already, please reserve your room as soon as possible to take advantage of the special rate of $119 plus taxes per night while rooms are still available at that price. Our group will have a special parking rate of $10 a night with in and out parking allowed. Please call 800-228-9290 and reserve under group Washington-Lee High School Class Reunion of 1957/1958 for the weekend of September 7-9. Even if you live locally, staying at the hotel gives more time to be together!
