Once again the Cheyney Alumni Travel Committee is planning for its bi-annual journey to Winston Salem, North Carolina for the National Black Theatre Festival (NBTF). It will be held from July 29 through August 3, 2013. This event, which last year attracted more than 50,000 people, will include two/three daily plays, youth talent shows, readings, seminars, receptions and more. Many famous television and screen personalities will be in attendance and some will be lodging in local hotels. You are cordially invited to join us.
The committee has taken into consideration some of the requests made by last year’s travelers and have tried to incorporate them into our coming sojourn. The most prominent one was to include The Marriott (host hotel) and Embassy Suite as lodging centers. The Hawthorne Conference Center is also available. As is our policy, comfort of friends and alumni and speedy notification of NBTF events is the committee’s principal concern. Hopefully you will join us to help make this an exciting vacation.
Attached is an information sheet that outlines some of the plans. A deposit, which is refundable until April 1, 2013, will hold a seat on the bus and reserve a room in the hotel of your choice. You may do so by completing the tear-off below and returning it with your deposit to the address above. Please be informed that payment may be made by Pay Pal. If you have questions, feel free to call Paul at 215-885-6840 or Jean at 215-877-6699. We look forward to hearing from you.
