Tentative Schedule for 73ers at DSA 2015!

Class of 1973 Gatherings at
Deaf Seniors of America Conference
Asheville, North Carolina- August 23-27, 2015 

Hello Class of 73 members!

We need to know if you're planning to attend the DSA conference in Asheville. There are a few names on the Class of 73 blog but there are more than 15 names on the DSA map. We do not want to miss or overlook any class member.

You can check the conference schedule and activities on DSA website or facebook. More than 900 people have registered and the conference schedule is filled with workshops, exhibits, and tours. If you want to go on tours, you will need to contact DSA and register for the specific tours.

Below is a tentative schedule for Class of 73.

We will meet at a designated place in the hotel daily to check on each other and address last minute changes or plans.

August 23: Sunday evening: Meet between 5 and 5: 30 for dinner at the Grove Park Inn (There are several dining options). Welcome by President Donna Leff

August 24 and 25: Monday and Tuesday morning breakfast at the hotel. (Between 7: 30 and 8) Time is tentative and we can decide later.

August 26: Wednesday morning: Gallaudet University Breakfast at the hotel

August 27: Thursday morning: Old Fashioned Country Style Breakfast (arranged by Glenda's family) This will be outside of the hotel. I need to know how many will be driving their own cars so that we have enough transportation.

For Lunch during the week we can decide at the hotel where to eat lunch. Grove Arcade which is about 2 miles from the hotel has a nice outdoor restaurant.

August 27: Thursday evening: Banquet and Gala at the hotel. 1920's theme. Dress up like 1920's and have fun!

August 28: Friday morning breakfast at hotel (tentative) as this will be check out morning. Will depend on how many will leave early or later.

Once I have a definite list of who will be going to the conference, I can communicate with you directly through email or texts. Please let Donna know if you are attending the conference.

Looking forward to seeing you in August!

Glenda Cable Zmijewski, Class of 73 Secretary
