Wornum Family Reunion
Your 2017 Wornum Family Reunion committee members are Sagay Wilder-Chairman, Karen Wourman-Hollis & Asmara Wilder-Secretary/Communications, Keyah Worthy & Kideste Wilder- Events, Malikee Bailey- Social Media and Ishabah Wilder & Tomeka Howard-Treasurer/Co-Treasurer. Sagay volunteered at the 2015 family reunion in Atlanta to take on the responsibility of building a team to work together, plan, and organize the upcoming family reunion. Our hats are off and a big thank you, to the previous committee members.
We have chosen to have the family reunion in Suffolk, VA on July 14th weekend. Suffolk was chosen because it is affordable yet still close to the famous Virginia Beach oceanfront and other historic areas in VA. The luxurious Double R Mansion at 7742 Quaker Dr Suffolk, VA 23437 will be the site for all of the reunion activities. The amenities are too many to name so feel free to visit their website at http://doublermansion.com. It is our hope that all or the majority of our family members will appreciate our efforts and agree that this is a great place to host our family reunion.
I have blocked rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn-Suffolk under the WFR. The discounted family nightly rate is $119 + tax per room. Parking is free at the hotel. As always, you are responsible for making hotel reservations for you and any family member in your party. All rooms must be reserved by May 1, 2017. Reservations for the reunion can be made NOW directly with the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront reservations at 757-925- 1300 or online at www.suffolk.gardeninn.com.
