We would like to know what the timing and mode of your travel plans to and from Birmingham will be. When your plans are complete, please contact email@example.com.
Arriving in Birmingham
We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport (5000 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd. N,) both Saturday and Sunday nights, Sept 21 and 22.
If you are traveling in on Saturday, plan to arrive in time for the 3:00 pm orientation.
- By air - Those who are flying in may take the Holiday Inn's free shuttle (which operates between 4:20 am and 12 midnight). Call the hotel to be picked up (phone 205-313-2856).
- By car - If you are driving to Birmingham, you will be able to leave your car in the Holiday Inn's parking lot without charge for the duration of the Pilgrimage.
On Saturday afternoon, the Pilgrimage program begins in the Holiday Inn Ballroom with a 3:00 pm welcome reception, orientation session, and buffet dinner. For any hungry person arriving before the programs begin, meals may be purchased at the restaurant in the hotel or at a little sandwich shop across the street
Leaving for home at the end of the Pilgrimage
Our final day, Saturday, Sept 28, begins at a hotel in Oxford, MS. It will be primarily a travel day. We have changed the time we planned to leave, and will now board our bus at 9:00 am for the 3 hour trip back to Birmingham. We will be sharing our responses to the Pilgrimage in words and song during the trip.
Important: If you plan to fly home on Saturday, Sept 28, do not schedule any flight from the Birmingham Airport before 1:30 pm on Saturday. For those of you who have a flight scheduled, the bus will drop you at the airport as we arrive back into town.
Arriving early or staying over
If you plan to arrive in Birmingham before Saturday night, Sept. 21, or if you plan to stay over on Saturday, Sept 28, contact the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport and tell them you are with the Living Legacy Pilgrimage to get the negotiated rate. You will be responsible to pay for this night.
Your planning team is working on setting up all the details, and you should look for regular bulletins from us over the next three months that will help you prepare and know what to expect. In the meantime, if you have questions, please visit our website at www.uulivinglegacy.org or feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Birmingham. If you attending GA, please join us for our workshop, #4017 “The Struggle Continues, While the Melody Marches On!,” Saturday, June 22, 1:45 to 3:00 pm, and for our Living Legacy Pilgrimage reception, which is on Friday, June 21, from 5 to 6 pm at The Marriott Hotel SkyBox Meeting Room 7.
