“Bill” Bautz, our current HFA President, invites all members of the Higdon Family Association, and any other interested Higdon descendants,  to meet in Gettysburg, VA for our 2018 Annual HFA Meeting. 

 8 Monday 2018: We will stay in the Gettysburg Hotel, One Lincoln Square, Gettysburg, PA the week of November 5-8, 2018, starting with meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday the 8th in the lobby/tavern to renew friendships and greet new arrivals. Dinner will be at any of the town’s fine restaurants. 

 9 Tuesday 2018: On Tuesday the 9th, we will go by bus to the Military Park Visitor Center to have an overview of the multi-day battle and visit various historical exhibits. Lunch will be at the cafeteria. That afternoon, we will take a docent led bus tour of the battlefield and return to the hotel. Dinner is “on your own.” 

10 Wednesday 2018: On Wednesday morning, the 10th, the HFA annual business meeting will be held in the hotel conference room. That afternoon there will be a docent led tour of the town of Gettysburg or free time to explore other points of interest. Wednesday evening features our annual banquet at the hotel. 

11 Thursday 2018: Departure is on Thursday morning, the 11th, when Bill wishes us “a safe journey home.” (Note: Plans may change based on interest and attendance.) 


Bill adds a travel note: “Nearest airports to Gettysburg are Harrisburg and Baltimore, both of which are 55 miles away. Baltimore is recommended because it has many more flights.”  


More information will be forthcoming as these plans develop.
