Be a part of the excitement . . . join in the fun . . . CAC's biggest party of the year!

FIESTA GRANDE

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS
July 25-31, 2004

The Alamo San Antonio is a city pulsing with modern frontier excitement and laced with the quaint charm of yesteryear. Its heritage, culture, traditions and natural beauty create a unique blend that has attracted adventurers, entrepreneurs, and visitors for hundreds of years.  From the earliest Spanish missionaries of 1691 to today's corporations and visitors, its appeal continues to draw attention.
 

The St. Anthony Hotel, with its rich heritage, has been designated a Texas and a National Historic Landmark.  Built in 1909, it was named after the city and St. Anthony of Padua. It overlooks the famed Travis Park, in the heart of downtown San Antonio.  The hotel is only a few blocks from Paseo del Rio Riverwalk, Rivercenter Mall, and The Alamo.  And less than a mile from museums and local attractions.

Make memories with CAC'ers...seasoned friends and new friends alike...and experience SAN ANTONIO!
