St. Marys,  Pennsylvania will be the home base for those who plan to stay at hotels.  St. Marys PA  is approximately 35 minutes to Elks Country Visitor Center, the site of the reunion.
In addition, limited hotel rooms that have been reserved for our group, there are cabins and other rentals in the area. 
There is also a hotel right in Benezette which is older but clean.  
To reserve a hotel room in St Marys PA please click on the “Travelers” Link. You must telephone the hotel staff on these hotels directly and ask to speak to the person in charge of group reservations.  Rooms are only reserved up to July 5, 2019 and then will be released to the public with current pricing.  Room pricing based on a two night stay.  Due to a wedding event on the same date as our reunion, it is important to book your hotel immediately as this city is the closest to where the reunion will take place.
More info on Elks County’s and other lodging may be found under the link “Elks County PA Info" link. It has info on where to see Elk, lodging and other Activities.  A great map for locating Elk and scenic drive is located on this site.

Those guests who live within driveable distances; such as Youngstown OH, Sharon PA and Pittsburgh have less than a 3 hour drive to Elk Country Visitor Center; however, we hope you stay and do some of the activities that are listed under “Travelers” link.   
Also, we have Bianchi Family (Augello/Angello/Angelo) who resided in and who are buried in Ridgway PA which is a short dive  from St. Marys.   Ridgway PA has a historical center with many old Victorian and Italianate style homes.  I am trying to get a Historian to do a walking tour.  At one time Ridgway was a wealthy area with lumber mills.   More to come on website.
