Another hotel option...cheaper

I checked the rate at the Quality inn in Kingsburg. The hotel has been completely renovated so it should be decent and as Yvonne said, "not poochie. I got a rate at 73.99 plus tax. They too will offer a hot breakfast. I blocked out 10 rooms for Friday the 17th thru Sunday the 19th. Call 1-559-897-1022 and ask for Garza reunion rate. I wasnt sure how many rooms to block out. Should I block out more? I dont know how many families plan on getting a hotel but if you plan to you need to do it soon because remember the rooms will come off hold two weeks prior to the event.

Do you need a Hotel?

I havent put any rooms on hold as of yet. I hope no one has tried to call and make reservations. Sorry time has just flew by. I cant believe the reunion is only months away. And that my son will be 2 years old on July 16th. Wow how time flies. Anyways, I am going to put about 15 rooms on hold at the Holiday Inn, in Selma by Friday the 22nd. If you need a room call the hotel directly (phone number is posted on the left hand side of the blog page) and ask for the Garza rate and book it. Two weeks before the event so after July 3rd the rooms will come off hold and I cannot guarantee the same rate at $95.00. There is also a new Quality Inn right in Kingsburg that I noticed the last time I was there. It looked pretty decent. I will call and check their rates and ask if they can put any rooms on hold for me without a credit card. All hotels work differently so I will let you know. Please blog any questions you may have. I cant wait to see everyone there. Oh yeah and we are planning to have a cake and pinanta at the pool event for my boy, Damien who will have just turned 2 so come ready to party!!!!

So have you thought about a t-shirt... 

There are so many websites that provide custom prints and I wanted to share with you the one Yvonne and I chose this weekend.  

We ordered some samples on Sunday morning and I got them in the mail on Tuesday... I could not believe the fast turn around.  

Here is the website we went with: they have "hanes tagless t-shirts"

I also wanted to share the image that we are using.
We choose a light blue t-shirt and decided to put this on the back with our names...
If you would like to use this image,  just let me know and I will provide it for you. 
Any color, any names... 

We will also be buying button pins with Grandma and Grandpa's picture on it to wear in front.

85 days and counting.......

Thanks alex and shawna for letting us come over and have a family meeting at your home! the meeting went very well. We discussed the menu, the budget, housing and hotel accomidations, and everything is looking really good. We should be able to do everything we were hoping to do.

Nancy and I will go to rent the Kingsburg High School Pool on 05/01/09, for Sunday 07/19/2009 for the hours of 1130-400, hopfully... when I tried to go on 04/01/09 they changed the date to start the bookings of the pool, SO that is going to be super fun!!

For the Big Day event Saturday 07/18/2009

The Mens Breakfast is still happening please call alex if you planning on attending 559-974-0503
Debbie is doing the slide show. Are you needing anything debbie for this? more pictures of the family members?
Mandi (tio evelio's daughter)and Beckie are working on some activities, but if you have games or ideas please post them.
Family T-shirts have been brought up by many of the family members. if your family is wanting to wear t-shirts for sat, 07/18/2009, like the last reunion then go for it!! my dad's family will be wearing a reunion t-shirt. Beckie is creating a design for us, you can design whatever your family likes.
Another topic of interest is that we are hoping we can house as many families who are having to travel as possible. The hotel rates in Selma are pretty reasonable, but can add up for families, so Kique, Mandi, D'andra, Alex will let me know who from their siblings and parents can host a family or two here. Lisette, Amy Crandell, Lolito/Nora, Karina if you can call me and let me know who from your families would like to stay at someones home or hotel. # 559-238-5538.
Tia Nena and Tio Ramiro will be staying with grandma. There have also been talks about fixing up the casita in the back for another family? we need to meet on that to see what needs to be done, from what I understand just a little TLC.
Lisette does need an estimate to hold rooms at the hotel to get the discounted price so the sooner we know the better!
There are still a few families who haven't responded back wether they will be coming or not. I will be calling just to find out soon if they will be able to make it. There is a rough estimate of 175 people coming!!!

Please post anything or comment on any questions you may can also call me at 559-238-5535...
