Notice to members planning to attend upcoming SWCM in St. Louis

CLEVELAND, August 25 ó Brother Dave Grimes, Local Chairman of BLET Division 42 (St. Louis) and host chairman of the 2014 Southwestern Convention Meeting, reports that the St. Louis Hilton at the Ball Park is sold out for the upcoming SWCM.

Brother Grimes advised that he is working to secure additional rooms at an alternate hotel. In the meantime, he asks that anyone planning to give up a reservation for the SWCM to do so through him (instead of going directly to the hotel) so that the room can be passed on to someone else from BLET planning to attend the SWCM. And if you havenít made hotel reservations yet and are in need of a room, please work with Brother Grimes. You may contact him by email (dgrimes1355@gmail.com) or by calling (573) 776-8333.

The 79th annual SWCM will be held at the St. Louis Hilton at the Ball Park from September 7-11, 2014. For more details, please visit the SWCM website or the BLET National Division website.
