The Grand Worthy Patron and I invite you to join us at the
Wyndham Grand Hotel to celebrate Deborah’s 98th Annual Grand
Session. The Wyndham is located in the City of Pittsburgh near the
“Point” where the three rivers meet.
We have planned several fun pre-convention activities beginning
Saturday, July 12th and continue throughout the weekend (see
program list). The Grand Session will officially convene on
Monday, July 14th.
To assist you in planning your visit, registration transportation and
hotel information is included here.
Whether this is your first visit or you are a return visitor to the City
there is plenty to do. The Cultural District is home to several
excellent theatres and a number of outstanding restaurants are within
walking distance of the hotel. You can jump on the “T” for a short
ride to The Rivers Casino. Or, you can enjoy a leisurely stroll
around The Point, take a ride on the Incline or enjoy the sites with a
ride on the double decker bus.
Start your planning today and we will see you in July!
