2020 VHPA Denver Reunion is canceled.

NEW - 2020 reunion T-shirts and pins The Denver reunion may have been cancelled but the spirit of what could have been lives on. The reunion logo was such a big hit that several members have asked about t-shirts & pins.

HQ will be taking pre-orders for t-shirts and pins until August 14, 2020.  One reunion pin will be included with each t-shirt ordered and additional pins may be purchased.  After sales have closed, the order will be placed with the vendor. Upon receipt of the shirts, HQ will ship your orders.

Steps for purchasing t-shirts & pins:
1. Download the form, at https://www.vhpa.org/R2020Tshirts.pdf
2. Mail your order form, along with your payment, to HQ at the address listed on the form.
3. Orders may also be placed by calling HQ at 800-505-8472.

Future Reunions

2020 - Sheraton Denver Downtown, Denver, CO ($125/night) Thursday - Sunday, 21 - 24 May 2020

2021 - The Westin Charlotte, Charlotte, NC ($129/night) Wednesday - Saturday, 30 June - 3 July 2021

2022 - Marriott Tampa Waterside, Tampa, FL ($129/night) Thursday - Sunday, 26-29 May 2022

Note from Art Jacobs, reunion committee chairman:  The closing banquet will be on the evening of the last day listed above. Our group rate will be good for 4 days prior to and 2 days after the dates above. The membership must also know that we were able to negotiate the lowest room rates, banquet pricing, etc. by agreeing to the dates listed, and to have locked in $129 / night for a first class hotel in a destination city 3 and a half years out is an excellent deal (and we hope to do the same for 2023).
