A message from WM Price about our upcoming Communication...


I'm sorry this is so late getting out. Iíve been having a hard time getting a place to have the evening meal on Friday the 17th,and rooms. With the 150 anniversary of Cedar Creek, things have been booked up 45 days ahead. Today I made reservations in Winchester Va at the Golden Corral for dinner at 6 PM for 20 to 25 people. Golden Corral is a steak house and buffet, all you can eat. Across the parking lot from the restaurant I have blocked out 10 rooms at the Sleep Inn & Suites. If you call for reservations, the booking is under Civil War Lodge Research, rates are $92.00 plus tax. This is non smoking rooms with either a king or two queen size beds. Bookings have to be made no later than October 3rd for this rate. Price will be for one or two night which every you want. The address for the Golden Corral is 120 Costello Drive Winchester,Va.22602.For the Motel is Sleep Inn & Suites 140 Costello Drive, Winchester Va.22602,phone number is 540-667-7636.Remember to ask for booking under Civil War Lodge Research. The Hotel has a breakfast included in the price. The meeting will take place at Spurmont Lodge at 135 John Marshall Highway, Strasburg Va. 22657,at 10 AM on October 18th lunch will be at the Lodge. After lunch hopefully, if weather is good we will travel to Cedar Creek for the battle. Hope to see a good gathering. If you have any questions contact either me at 540-335-3635 (cell) or your Secretary. God bless each of you and your families. Wayne
