Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are having to do a "flip-flop" and reverse the order of the two tours planned for the 2013 Missouri Division/Missouri Society Reunion. A wedding has been scheduled at the Historic Bolton House for the afternoon, which will require that our tour of that home be changed to the MORNING LADIES TOUR. Obviously, the tour of some of Jefferson City's historic Confederate homes and other sites will be subsequently changed to be in the afternoon right after the MOSB Business Session and will be available to all who want to attend.
We apologize for the necessity of making this change, and we wish we did not have to make this change for those who were looking forward to seeing the Bolton House in the afternoon, but we have no choice but to go forward with this reversal of the tours.
We have spent several hours getting the rest of the reunion scheduled in a way that will hopefully run smoothly and on time. Please review the revised "Schedule of Events" which reflects the change in the tours. All other functions of the Reunion will transpire as they were scheduled.
I should also be mentioned that M.M. Parsons Camp member Mark Schreiber, who was our tour guide at the Old Missouri State Prison two years ago, will be the tour guide for both tours this year. Compatriot Schreiber knows the history of the Jefferson City area like no other, and always gives a great tour. Both of these tours a free of charge and transportation will be provided.
PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR CAMP MEMBERS. WE WILL DO OUR VERY BEST TO GET THE WORD OUT TO THE WHOLE DIVISION VIA THE NEWSLETTER AND THE WEBSITE AS WELL.
WE ALSO NEED YOUR HELP ASAP WITH REGARD TO YOUR TAKING THE TOUR(S). WE NEED TO KNOW HOW MANY WILL BE ATTENDING EACH TOUR ASAP, SO WE CAN PLAN FOR WHAT KIND OF TRANSPORTATION WILL BE NEEDED, ETC. PLEASE EITHER REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, OR CONTACT ME TO LET ME KNOW IF YOU AND/OR YOUR GUESTS WILL BE ATTENDING EITHER TOUR... THIS IS CRITICAL THAT WE KNOW IN ADVANCE. DIVISION ADJUTANT PAUL LAWRENCE AND MYSELF WILL DO OUR BEST TO GET THE NUMBERS TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS GO AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
