The Grand Worthy Patron and I invite you to join us at the Wyndham Grand Hotel to celebrate Deborah’s 98 th 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 12 th and continue throughout the weekend (see program list). The Grand Session will officially convene on Monday, July 14 th. 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!
