Where: Ft. Worth, Texas When: September 2-6, 2018

Ft. Worth, Texas is looking forward to the arrival of the Society of Military Widows on Sunday, September 2, 2018. We will meet at the Embassy Suites Downtown in Ft. Worth, Texas, for a little business, fun and fellowship.

Don't delay! Start preparing NOW. We are meeting earlier than usual and hope to see everyone there! There will be a welcoming reception Sunday night, our regular mandated meetings, a tour of Ft. Worth and some fun at the Stockyards. [Don’t forget your western gear.] We plan to travel to the Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base Ft. Worth for our Memorial Service at the chapel followed by a little shopping at the exchange and lunch. Everyone has suggestions for the best places to eat and there are many restaurants, shops and things to see in a short walk or a trolley ride from our hotel. Breakfast and evening cocktails with refreshments are included each day, so get your registrations in as soon as you can. DFW [Dallas-Ft. Worth] is your closest airport. Taxis, shuttles, Uber and Lyft are available to get you to our hotel. [Do not forget to make those arrangements.]

Cathy and I will be there waiting for you and the hotel is re-decorating just in time for our arrival! Don’t be late. We are anxious to see you in Ft. Worth on Sunday, September 2, 2018.
