We have made a decision on behalf of our family with the Embassy Suites Hotel to postpone our 40th Family Reunion until next year. We have modified our contract with the Embassy Suites Hotel in Philadelphia to host our 40th and 41st Family Reunion next July 2021. Everything will be held the 3rd weekend of July, the dates are the 15th - 18th, 2021 at the same hotel Embassy Suites Hotel, 9000 Bartram Ave in Philadelphia, PA. The hotel has cancelled all room reservations for this year. If you used a credit/debit card to reserve your room in full, your money will be refunded by the hotel. You will need to re-register for your hotel rooms next year.
Anyone that has paid their Family Reunion registration fee for this year will not need to pay it agin in 2021. All registration fees will be retained until next year. You can still send in your fegistration fee for next year if you want to get it out of the way.

We will retain this year's (2020) Host Chapter fee and Youth fee of $200 paid by the Chapters for next year. The only money that will be due next year from the Chapter will be the $50 website fee which is due each year.
