Details for 2016 Annual Reunion of Sultana Descendants and Friends- Knoxville, Tennessee, April 22-23

Here’s details about this year’s annual reunion of the Association of Sultana Descendants and Friends to be held in Knoxville, Tennessee, on Friday, April 22nd, and Saturday, April 23rd.

I have booked a block of rooms for the attendees at the recently remodeled (2014) Holiday Inn at Cedar Bluff, just west of downtown on I-40/I-75.

The room rate for the Sultana Association is $99 + tax per room (normally $149 + tax). Included in the special rate is a free hot breakfast (not a Continental breakfast) for each room occupant.

For reservations you can call the hotel direct, or use the 800 number, both listed below. Be sure and mention that you are with the Sultana Association. For online reservations use the link below. Please make your reservations by April 1st.

For those who don’t know, our reunions for descendants and friends had it’s first reunion, informally, at the beautiful Sultana monument in South Knox County in 1987 followed by our first formal reunion in 1988, 28 reunions ago!

We then met in Knoxville for the first 14 years before holding reunions at sites related to the Sultana story. Our first “away” reunion was in Vicksburg, MS, our first of 3 eventual reunions at that location. Some other cities where we held our annual gatherings are Memphis, Chattanooga, and Franklin in Tennessee; Mansfield and Cincinnati in Ohio; Athens, AL; and, of course, in Marion, AR, this year.
