February 4th-6th 2011
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library
Simi Valley, CA

The Personal Invitation from Nancy Reagan, along with the Program of Events for Saturday’s activities shows the extent Mrs. Reagan and the RR Presidential Foundation have gone to make this a Stellar weekend for everyone, including the national television audience, as the premier kickoff to a year of Reagan Centennial Celebrations throughout America!

The Centerpiece of the RR Library is the newly-renovated Museum. It not only archives and displays many of the Hallmark moments in Reagan’s long career as life guard, radio sports announcer, television announcer / anchor / M.C., movie actor, union leader, political candidate for Governor of California to President of the United States--but also brings those venues to life; like never before! It is a Must See!


The events of the Reagan 100th at the Library could best be described as: An Awesome Spectacle!

From the crisp, colorful Maroon & Gold uniforms and gleaming brass horns of the famed USC Marching Band descending the long steps under the glistening wings and jet engines of AIR FORCE ONE, blasting their timeless Souza marches, The Beach Boys taking the guests on a trip down “Memory Lane” with their surfing and 1950’s hopped-up, top-down, convertible car songs---to Lee Greenwood bringing everyone to their feet with his rousing rendition of “God Bless The U .S.A.!”


It was a time for reminiscing for some with long-lost Reaganite colleagues, for others to visit with friends of forty plus years, and to thank God for his gift of Ronald Reagan’s example and legacy; to the people of the United States.
