2019 Hilliard Cunningham Family Reunion

Reunion Family,
 
"Ask not what your family can do for you, but what you can do for your family".  We're glad you asked!  The answer is, you can be among the first to register for our upcoming Hilliard/Cunningham Family Reunion which will be held in beautiful downtown Houston, Texas June 27-30, 2019.  The Houston committee has been working hard on making this reunion one to be remembered for years to come.  We have chosen the Hampton Inn/ Homewood Suites by Hilton Located in downtown Houston.  We have negotiated excellent room rates and in and out valet parking rates (which is at a premium in downtown Houston).  A full complimentary breakfast is included each morning for those registered family members staying at this facility. 
 
We will begin with a welcome reception at the host hotel on Thursday Evening.  On Friday morning we'll leave for a brief journey to Hallettsville, Texas, where we'll visit the Brown Chapel Cemetery where Bunk and Mary Hilliard are buried.  While there, we’ll have a memorial service followed by a picnic and games.  Friday night will be free time, where the family can partake of the many entertainment venues in downtown Houston, including night clubs, and Minute Maid stadium (home of the Astros baseball team).   Saturday, during the day, will be open for shopping or just visiting with family.  Our banquet, dinner entertainment and family meeting will be held on Saturday night.  Sunday morning we will conclude the reunion with our traditional Church service, with music furnished by our family choir.
 
As a cost saver, we will not be doing mail outs, so it is extremely important that you provide copies of our correspondence to your family members who might not have assess to email.   A copy of the registration form will be attached to this email and will also be on our reunion website (hillandcunnreunion.com).  We will again have a souvenir booklet.  The cost of ads for that booklet is $75 for a full page, $50 for a Half page and $30 for a quarter page.  Those ads and the checks should be sent to Edith Page at 1049 Lucky St, Houston, TX. 77088.  Those ads need to be submitted by June 1, 2019.  The checks should be made payable to the "Hilliard/Cunningham Family Reunion".
 
Please send your registration form and checks to David W. Hilliard at 2703 Garden Falls Dr. Manvel, Texas 77578.  The checks should be made payable to "Hilliard/Cunningham Family Reunion".
 
The "host" hotel is unique in that there are really two hotels under the same roof.  It is named the Hampton Inn/Homewood Suites by Hilton - Downtown Houston at 710 Crawford street Houston, Texas 77002.  The rates at the Hampton Inn for a standard room are $109.  At the Homewood Suites, the rates for a King Studio Suites are $119 and the two Queen Suites are $139. All rooms have a microwave; however, the Homewood Suites have a kitchen.  The parking is $16 per day (in and out).  The reservation number is the same for both hotels.  To book room arrangements, call 713-224-001.  Be sure to mention the Hilliard/Cunningham Family reunion.
 
Yours truly,
