As people started to check into the Habana Inn for the COPT's Labor Day Get-A-Way Weekend 2018 August 29 - September 3rd, they could see and feel that there were more people than in past years. Indeed, they were right. The Habana Inn filled the 130 rooms that were allocated to Prime Timers. Habana Inn offered an additional 9 rooms. By the time the festivities started, those rooms were already booked. Many rooms had 2 people in them.


Some scheduled events included: Continental Breakfast, Hospitality Room, Happy Hours, Welcome Party, BBQ dinner, Randy Lunsford entertaining beside the pool all weekend long, Box Lunch or Pizza both days, 2 days of city tours, Saturday night banquet with world class singer Dr. Matthew Johnston from Wichita, KS, a couple of brunches, and bridge, There's also fun by the pool whether in the pool or sitting visiting and watching others.

The 170 attendees were free to decide what to participate in or to go with friends to do whatever they wanted in Oklahoma City. Participants come from nearly every state in the US, Canada, and Australia. They sat at tables under umbrellas or around the pool catching up with friends about their lives. New friendships begin with forming bonds that will be strengthened with phone calls, emails, and visits. Several participants described the annual gathering as like coming home for a family reunion. One of our COPT members, while on a Prime Timers cruise overheard a discussion among those on the cruise that the Labor Day Weekend in OKC was their best value for the money of any such gathering.

Central Oklahoma Prime Timers wish to thank the owners and staff of the Habana Inn for the many years they have made us feel like family. Also, to the many volunteers and participants who came together to make Labor Day 2018 fun in the sun and like a family reunion a success. We can only hope the new owners who bought The Habana Inn will be as accommodating to our group as we have experienced in the past.

The newly renovated Hotel Habana will welcome C.O.P.T. Labor Day Get-A-Way guests for 2019. See you in 2019. Join the party!
