It is my hope that everyone is doing well given our current situation. In conjunction with the current ACRN staff, plans for the 50th Anniversary weekend in Athens for April 16-18, 2021 are continuing. Here is an update on the planning.
Thanks to Carrie Markels, there are room blocks at the following hotels that you can start reserving now.
The first block is at the Ohio University Inn [740-593-6661 or 1-866-593-6661]. The rate is $109 per night (starting on Friday, April 16th) and you have the choice of either a King with a pull-out sofa or a Double. You would state that is for the “ACRN 50th Anniversary”.
