The 14th annual meeting and fundraising night of ASAA – N.A. will be held in Texas July 4, 2009. Our Dallas hosts have been planning every aspect to make sure our stay is enjoyable. Although cancelled for programming and convenience purposes, a few hours drive from Dallas is Houston if you want to visit historic places and be near the water. For entertainment, we are expecting Tadese Abraha (wedi kokeb) to join Selomon Haile, Tadese G. and Yayne. We will have three singers for the first time. Dallas has arranged a group discount rate at Quality Inn for lodging. This is also where the party and meeting will be held. You must reserve by June 12 to qualify for the discount.
