Mr. N.A. "Charlie" Gonzales has accepted the chairmanship for the reunion. He will need many volunteers, so please offer him your talents, especially those of you in the Tucson area. There is no charge for the dedication, so bring the entire family.

The Reunion at the Braniff Place Hotel will start at 6 PM with a No Host Cocktail Party. Refreshments will be individuals 's expenses. Dinner will be served at 7 PM, at a cost of $7.50 per person. There will be an outstanding mariachi group for your entertainment and with program to follow. The aim and purpose of the reunion is to celebrate the bicentennial of the family's association with Arizona and the City of Tucson. There will be ample time to become re-acquainted with long absent family members and relatives.
