Are you ready for the 33rd annual 11th ACVVC reunion in Grand Rapids September 5-9? Just 5 months away but your Blackhorse Women’s Group has been busy thinking ahead!


We have an exciting and interesting adventure planned for you! Read on to learn more!


What: We are hosting a Women’s Group Luncheon and Tour!

When: The afternoon of Friday, September 7 12 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. We'll begin boarding reserved buses at 12 noon at the reunion location (exact boarding location to be announced later).


Where: Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park just out of the city. The Sculpture Park is among the world’s top 100 art museums visited worldwide. Early Sculpture art works go back as far as the 19th century.

Details: This is one of the nation’s most significant sculptural and botanical experiences. There are 158 acres of indoor and outdoor gardens and sculpture exhibits. We’ll have guided tours as well as the opportunity to view portions of it by tram. The Park is handicap assessable throughout.


Luncheon: We’ll start our experience with lunch catered by the venue's Taste of the Gardens Cafe, a popular Grand Rapids lunch venue and said to be a treat in itself.

What We'll See: After lunch we'll tour the magnificent gardens and sculptures. In addition to the guided tours, you are free to walk around at your leisure. There are places to sit and relax throughout nature's beauty.

Return: We will begin to board buses for our return around 4 p.m. returning to the reunion hotel somewhere around 4:30.

Cost: As with all of our Women’s events, you pay actual cost of your catered lunch, group entry fee, and transportation. That cost is $41 per person.


How to Sign Up: Preregistration and payment is required. I’ve attached a registration form for your convenience. Please print it, and fill it out completely, one form per person. Remember to select your lunch choice.

Mail your completed form with payment to the Blackhorse Women's Group to the address on the form. (Do not mail it with the 11th  ACVVC Reunion registration.) You can make copies of this form for family and guests!

This is your chance to preregister for this fun event! (Regular registration begins after the next Thunder Run is sent.)


Hoping to see you in Grand Rapids!
