Re: 1990 SOZA FAMILY REUNION August 31-September 2, 1990
Official Headquarters: Holiday Inn - Broadway, 180 West Broadway, Tucson, Arizona (602-624-8711)
General Chairman

Co-Honorary Chairman

THE EXTENDED SOZA AND SOSA FAMILIES of Arizona are unique in the annals of Arizona history, because through Alferez Jose Maria Sosa, family members have a heritage dating from 1774 at Presidio San Ignacio de Tubac and from 1775 at the Presidio de San Agustin del Tucson. For at least 215 years, the Soza, Sosa families have lived continuously, in Tucson and other parts of Arizona.

With understandable pride and honor, your Reunion Committee has done everything possible, for the grandest and finest reunion. The Committee has reviewed and assessed countless details and arrangements, in an effort to provide for your total pleasure, comfort, and enjoyment. You will rejoice, be enriched, and thrilled by the experience of this reunion.

Requirements are that we deposit 25% ($11,500.) May 15th. Help us meet this deadline. Please send your banquet dinner reservations at once.

To defray reunion expenses,, activities, functions, etc., consider becoming a Benefactor ($100.), Patron ($50.) or Donor ($25.) Names of all contributors will be listed in the Reunion Banquet Program.

A coffee mug with reunion logo, (showing) plus eighty surnames associated with the extended Soza, Sosa families, is being offered. The sample mug is very attractive and you will want several. We must sell 350 mugs to break even. Profits, if any will defray expenses.

Descendants of Alferez Jose Maria Sosa are bona fide "Descendants of the Presidio San Agustin del Tucson". If you would like to receive a letter of recognition signed by the Mayor of Tucson, send in your request with your banquet reservation at once.

Reunion special price of $41.00 for single or double occupancy. This is our headquarters and site of the banquet. Use the reservation card enclosed.

Your help is needed to update our family tree. Complete the enclosed chart and return to me.
