Rear of River Street Inn (Reunion
|Our reunion was a blend of southern charm
and the Mabuhay of the Islands. Four wonderful days, and we were
greeted with unseasonal cool weather for that time of the
Our reunion theme was:
We stayed at an historic hotel, the Riverstreet Inn, located in the middle of the bustling tourist section and by the river. The hotel offered a daily complimentary "Happy Hour" with wine and hors d' hoeuvres and cash bar, where we all congregated every day.
The first night we had a "Welcome Cocktail Reception" with light food, and many of us wandered out to the shops and restaurants after wards on River Street.
