You are invited to a reunion for all branches of the Aten, Auten and Eaton families that originated with Adrian Hendrickse Aten. At the reunion in Somerset, NJ in 2002, the relationship of the various branches of the Atens, Autens and Eatons was confirmed, using DNA testing, to be related. The reunion will be held on June 24th to June 26th 2005 just outside of the town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Pittsburgh Airport Hotel. As soon as our block of rooms becomes full we will need to reserve another block of rooms so please let me know if you are planning to reserve a room at the hotel. If you make your reservations using the Internet then you need to give our group code, which is AFR (as in Aten Family Reunion).
The hotel location is: Holiday Inn Pittsburgh Airport 8256 University Blvd. Moon Township Coraopolis, Pa 15108-2591 412-262-3600 http://www.hipittsburgh.comhttp://www.hipittsburgh.com
The Aten reunion rate for a room is $65 per night, but you must ask for the Aten Reunion rooms to get this rate. I believe that this is single or double occupancy. Make your reservations by Friday, June 10th. Just ask them to connect you to Rose Pascal, the Sales Manager, if you have any problems with reservations. Aten Reunion participants who have been included in this special rate may have the same room rate from June 20th through June 30th, 2005.
There is a free shuttle service between the airport and the Holiday Inn.
check in time is 3:00p.m. check out time is 11:00a.m. (they can be flexible on this time if you ask)
The Holiday Inn has a full service restaurant, and there are a lot of restaurants in the area, some within walking distance. You will be on your own for all meals except for a family meal or meals scheduled for Saturday. More details will follow later.
We are considering having a hospitality room on Friday evening, where snacks may be provided, but no dinner. This will be an informal gathering for us to meet, reminisce and to share information.
Saturday morning we may meet in the hospitality room after breakfast to have more time together.
Sunday we have no plans yet.
Please E-mail me back and let me know whether you are interested in attending, or if you wish to be removed from this list. This E-mail list is a compilation of various E-mail lists and the organizing committee realizes that it may contain people who aren't related to us. If you will not be able to attend, but would like to remain on the list to hear of any future events then you don't need to do anything. I will send more information as it becomes available.
