I know everyone is excited to get together for our American Cream Draft family reunion and it be a treat to be back on the East Coast. There are several airports to fly into, depending on how far you want to drive in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains! I know several of us will be driving in and we hope to have a few horses coming in for the meeting!
The meeting will be Friday at the Hotel starting at 9 am, the hotel is catering a lunch for us so that we can keep the meeting going and get everything done. It will be a “deli” style lunch with bread, meats, cheese and salads with brownies for desert and tea and water to drink. The price is covered by your registration fee and a donation. We will have our normal silent auctions to raise funds for the association. Friday evening will be on your own but there is an awesome restaurant in the hotel.
