2012 Department Convention

Springfield, Missouri, 65807

19 May 2012

As you know our state convention is coming up on us very quickly. Arrangements have been made to hold this year's convention at the LaQuinta Inn, Springfield South, 2535 S. Campbell, Springfield, MO 65807, on 19 May 2012.

Rooms at the LaQuinta Inn can be had for the following rates (mention Purple Heart Convention):

Single Queen : $68.85 per night Double Queen: $79.05 per night

Contact information for the LaQuinta Inn is: Tel: 417 890-6060. The cutoff date for reservations is 1 May 2012.

I'm trying to get one or two of the Missouri State Legislators to speak at the convention on veteran issues at our state house in Jefferson City. It would be nice to have a good turnout of Patriots and Associates, so we can hear directly from our elected officials on some veteran initiatives going on in our state capital.

Have not decided on a banquet for Saturday night (19 May 2012). This will depend on number of folks attending. Please let me know if you would like a banquet or a nice location and order from menu. There is still time to put either one together. My contact information is listed above in the letterhead.

Again remember if you're going to the staying at the hotel, the cutoff date is 1 May 2012. As for the convention - let me know if your coming so I can finalize details.

Yours in Patriotism,

Everett L. Kelly
