What We Did

5501 N. Hacienda del Sol Road, Tucson, AZ  85718   http://www.haciendadelsol.com

We headquartered our informal reunion of the Arizona Alpha Pi Beta Phi Pledge Classes of 1962, 1963 and 1964 and other interested Pi Phis at Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort in Tucson, AZ.  

We scheduled some activities and suggested some others.  Of course, everyone was free to visit with each other as she desired.  The Hacienda del Sol was a delightful place to hang out and visit.  The Casita Grande at Hacienda #38, which we rented for the event, was open each afternoon for Pi Phis attending the Reunion for gathering and for refreshments.
