Reagan Day Dinner at Bella Harbor Hilton

Last Friday night, Tom and I attended the Rockwall County GOP’s dinner in honor and memory of President Ronald Reagan, at the brand new Hilton hotel in the Harbor District.

What we saw of the hotel (the conference center) is very nice, and the event was a lot of fun. Here’s a photo of the room:

Kay Bailey Hutchison was the keynote speaker and she gave a great talk, but even more inspiring were the tributes to our military personnel (yes, I’m biased on that one due to being a proud Navy Mom with a daughter in Afghanistan right now).

Here’s a copy of the program:


We were invited by Rowlett Mayor John Harper and sat at one of his two tables. We got to meet more of our city councilmembers and candidates, and were especially excited by the enthusiasm shown by Councilmember Todd Gottel, who has many great plans for the city.

It was also an opportunity to get all spiffed up (Tom even bought a new suit for the occasion). Here are some photos of us in our finery:


The menu was the same menu served at President Reagan’s first inaugural dinner. It consisted of a salad and rolls, a very tasty chicken and rice dish (and unlike at many such functions, the portions were very generous) and a strawberry and cream dessert.  Here’s what our table looked like:

All in all, it was a very pleasant evening and the only complaint I have is the parking situation. They had valet parking for the event, and it worked great for dropping the cars off, but retrieving them went very slowly. Finding a parking place without valet service would have been a challenge.

We continue to be amazed and pleased with the Harbor development, and just wish we could get something similar in Rowlett.
