Letter from Chairman Ellis

I hope you have reserved the date and plan to join us for Founders Weekend at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, on March 24-26, 2017. Some of you may even want to extend your stay and arrive a day early!

A registration table will be set up in the Main Lobby between 3 and 5 pm on Friday. Please check into your room and then stop by the H-SC table for a detailed schedule and a list of all guests. You are invited to the Welcome Reception at 5:30 pm at InFusion Bar and Restaurant. Then you are on your own to explore The Greenbrier dining options.

The annual golf outing scheduled for The Greenbrier course will be a little different this year. Because of greens and fairway re-construction from last spring's flood, there will be only 12 holes available-thus the reduced fee of $65. Limited tee times begin at 10 am.

On Saturday evening we will gather in the Trellis Lobby for cocktails at 6 pm, followed by dinner in the Cameo Ballroom.

This invitation, as well as our corresponding website, includes all the information you need to make your travel plans. A special room rate of $199 a night will be honored until February 27, 2017, or until rooms are no longer available. Please call The Greenbrier to make your reservation. Then return the enclosed reservation card so we will know you intend to join us.

If you have questions about the activities or room reservations, please call Candy Dowdy (434) 223-7140. I look forward to seeing you on March 24-26

With best wishes,

Chairman Ellis
