The Lettermen Society
Another successful Lettermen Society Convention comes to an end with everyone traveling home after four days packed with private time shared, concerts, special surprises & making of new friends......
Attendees of The 32nd Annual Lettermen Society held October 10-13, 2013 in Las Vegas experienced many special moments with The Lettermen. The convention got off to a great start with everyone attending The Dennis Bono Radio/Internet Show where The Lettermen were guests. That evening the fun continued with everyone going on a Las Vegas Night Lights tour of the Las Vegas Strip. For over three hours, the amazing sites of Las Vegas were enjoyed with The Lettermen--Tony on one bus and Donovan and Bobby on the other. Then, for the second half of the tour, they switched buses, enabling them to share this special time with all.
A unique opportunity started the day of activities with attendance at sound check...the behind the scenes fine-tuning and rehearsal that goes into the polished performances of The Lettermen, followed by another stellar show in the South Point Showroom.
Saturday was quite a full day, but everyone was able to relax & spend some private time with Tony, Donovan & Bobby at a delicious luncheon. A private "by request" informal concert was held before another sold-out Lettermen show in the South Point Showroom where The Lettermen were surprised on stage by Ron Alexenberg, Executive Director of The Hit Parade Hall of Fame. He presented an award to them in recognition of their induction into The Hit Parade Hall of Fame.
A lovely breakfast on Sunday morning provided the opportunity for those departing for home to say goodbye to friends old and new and get that one last hug from The Lettermen. Those remaining had one final treat--one more Lettermen concert in the Showroom bringing this wonderful time together to a close.
