Lines from Lynn:
Double Tree Ontario Airport Hotel
By Lynn Tegtmeier Valdez ‘65
CHSAA Reunion Liaison
When I began serving as Reunion Liaison for the Alumni Association many years ago, one of the first things I did was visit Ontario area hotels to make personal contact with their event coordinators and group booking agents. As with everything, some of the folks were very helpful while others showed virtually no interest in booking reunions. I have also made it a point to ask for feedback from the various class reunion chairpersons relative to pros and cons of the various venues.
Not surprisingly, the Double Tree Ontario Airport Hotel has proven to be the most popular venue for those classes opting for the traditional “dinner/dance” reunion format. Over the years I have consistently received very positive feedback about the facilities at the hotel in general and more specifically about Rafael Solis (909 418-4842), the special event coordinator. In 2015, as co-chair of the Class of 1965's fifty year reunion committee, I had the opportunity to work closely with Mr. Solis. Every step of the process, from preliminary discussions about booking the ball rooms right through the evening of the event, Mr. Solis was always available to answer questions, offer advice and assist in any way he could.
If you have something you would like to share with other reunion committees, contact me and I’ll see that it is published in the Tiger Rag.
