2021 Reunion Has Postponed

Postponement of 2021 57th AHC Reunion OCT 7th - 10th.



Primary reason for postponement is based on a significant change in the local Region’s Health status where Reunion activities were scheduled. The Hotel, the Air Show and NASA tour are all in Harris County. Additionally, most of our membership is in the age group most at risk population.

Harris County judge Lina Hidalgo raised the COVID-19 threat level to “red” on Thursday afternoon, as the COVID-19 delta variant has increased hospitalizations and strained the region’s hospital resources over the past month.

It’s the second time the county has hit its highest threat level. The first time was in June 2020, and lasted until May.

The new advisory (threat level red) indicates that severe and uncontrolled outbreaks are present in the community and worsening, and that the public health capacity in the region is strained or exceeded, Hidalgo said. "It's straining our staff, it's straining our hospitals, and it's imposing heartbreak and anxiety in so many families in Harris County,” Hidalgo said.

The county judge called the latest surge a "perfect storm” of strained staff, a more transmissible virus, and the limited ability for local leaders to implement public health policies.

The delta variant of the coronavirus has spread rapidly throughout the region and across Texas, leading to massive increases in cases and hospitalizations. In Harris County, 25% of ICU patients are being treated for COVID-19, up from 20% on Sunday. The positivity rate in the county is doubling every 1.8 weeks, Hidalgo said.

Dr. Cedric Dark, an emergency room doctor at Harris Health System’s Ben Taub Hospital, told Town Square on Wednesday that LBJ Hospital — also within the system — declared themselves in an internal disaster!

This decision was agreed upon by Jim Carriere, Darrell Anthony, Craig Hedgley and Sam Moore.

I will continue to be the Reunion Coordinator and will communicate more often!
