Message from Legacy 5: Memorial Day Celebration Cancellation
As you all know, Middle Tennessee has experienced a historic series of storms that resulted in record rainfall and now widespread flooding. Gaylord Opryland Resort, which sits adjacent to the Cumberland River, suffered flood damage in the early hours of Monday, May 3, 2010 as the river rose to levels that have not been seen in the last 50 years and breached the levees.
As a result of these floods, Opryland Hotel is currently closed and will not be able to accommodate the annual Memorial Day Celebration. We thought that we had an alternate venue secured but then that venue informed us that they had made a mistake and they were not able to help us after all. We have exhausted all options and have unfortunately been unable to make acceptable arrangements for Memorial Day. Therefore, regrettably we will have to re-schedule the Memorial Day Celebration for a later time. Currently, we are trying to secure dates for later this year at the Gaylord Opryland hotel and we will let you know as soon as those arrangements are finalized. Perhaps a Christmas or a New Year's Eve Celebration will be possible. The Hotel is absolutely magnificent during the Christmas season.
Opryland Hotel will be refunding deposits and payments for all reservations scheduled for arrival over the next 90 days. We greatly appreciate your patience and Opryland requests that you allow several weeks for processing.
Please know that we tried everything in our power to find a suitable substitute for Opryland Hotel, but nothing was available in the greater Nashville area. We are so very disappointed and we know that our 1000 friends will be as well. We will continue to work very diligently to make a very special alternative available quickly. Please continue to watch www.legacyfive.com for updates. God Bless you, our friends for your gracious understanding. We love you and look forward to seeing you at another Celebration soon.
