Re: Dedication Ceremony at Casa del Gobernador / Reunion Dinner

We are extremely excited about the two biggest events in the lives of our numerous families, to take place at Tucson, Arizona on Wednesday, April 9, 1975.

First, the public dedication of the "Jose Maria Sosa Room" at the John Charles Fremont House / Casa del Gobernador at 10 AM. There is no charge, so bring the entire family. We are anxious to have all our several branches of the family represented. We are particularly anxious to introduce all the senior members mentioned in my earlier letter.

Secondly, the Soza Bicentennial Reunion Dinner, to take place at the beautiful and new Braniff Place Hotel, which we will also use as our headquarters. Cocktails at 6 PM with a No Host Bar. Dinner will be served at 7 PM, at a cost of $7.50 per person.

If possible, we will try to arrange a bus tour of historic Tucson, pointing out the original town site, old presidio site, and a tour of historic San Xavier Mission; all important in the life of our family's early arrival.

So that we may make full and proper arrangements for your attendance and complete our program, we need your reservations at your very earliest convenience. Preferably, we would appreciate your reservations by next week. If you can not attend the dinner, please attend the dedication ceremony, as we would like to make your acquaintance, and introduce you.

Please detach the lower the lower part of this letter, make the proper entries, and send it at once to the noted address:

To: Mr. N.A. Gonzales, General Chairman
Soza Bicentennial Reunion
733 South Third Street
Tucson, Arizona 85701
