Restoring Love: July 26 - 28

Mercury One Memphis members, We would like to get an idea of who in our group is thinking about attending Restoring Love in Arlington TX in July. If you would like attend but are not sure you can manage it, go ahead and RSVP Yes (you can put Maybe in the comment line) and then pre-register for Sat. night tickets, or the full three day event tickets at  
If there is enough interest, we might be able to hold a fundraiser or a sponsorship donation opportunity to help defray the costs for those who are able to attend.


July 26, Day 1: Check-in and Meet People
July 27, Day 2: Day of Service
July 28, Day 3: Get Inspired

On December 8th, Glenn Beck announced an event called Restoring Love. But, is not only an event, it is a great movement. Restoring Love will be a movement to restore love and charity back into the American people and back into our great country.

The Nashville 9/12 group is organizing a bus that is going to make a stop in Memphis here is the information she sent me. When I spoke to her she said she will work with you on your situation (kids, traveling on your own, hotel room only, bus trip only, etc)


Nashville Bus Coordinator - Misty Collins (Reserve your travel package w/Misty at [masked] or email: [masked]


The price breakdown is based on the occupancy for each room. All rooms are suites. 

King Suite: 1 King Bed and 1 separate sofa sleeper 
Queen Suite: 2 Queen Beds and 1 separate sofa sleeper 
Single Occupancy – 1 Person (The only person in their room) = $430 
Double Occupancy – 2 People (Two people sharing one room) = $300 per person 
Triple Occupancy – 3 People (Three people sharing one room) = $257 per person 
Quadruple Occupancy – 4 People (Four people sharing one room) = $235 per person 
5 People (Five people sharing one room) = $225 per person 
6 People (Six people sharing one room) = $205 per person 

Note: According to hotel staff, you can sleep two people on the sofa sleeper (new air mattress type), but she did not recommended it, unless they were children. If you plan to have 5 or 6 guests in your room, please tell them up front their bed will be a sofa sleeper. I don’t anyone to get there and be disappointed or angry. 

The above price includes your (4) four night hotel stay, transportation to and from Dallas via motor coach, and your ticket to the 8/28/2012 event @ Cowboy Stadium. 

The bus pick up will at Cool Springs Galleria Mall (Franklin, TN) Please arrive 30 – 45 before departure. The bus will be parked near Sears and Interstate 65. The bus will leave at 7:45 a.m. The bus should reach Memphis around 11:00 (We haven't worked out a meeting place yet and would welcome suggestions.)

As of today (12/21/2011) we have not been given a lot of details about the volunteer or charity work we will be doing. As the group travels around the city together, we will use the motor coach. If our group is split up on the work day (Friday July 27) I will do my best to use our motor coach and the hotel shuttle to get everyone where they need to go. Thursday July 26 is the registration day, so we should have plenty of time to get out and explore.

    Buses are driving down to Restoring Love from all over America. If you want to hitch a ride, some buses still have seats left, and they need to fill them soon. To connect with bus organizers you can check out the map on this website.

    I just talked to Misty in Nashville. The hotel is a Comfort Suite it is about 45 minutes from the Cowboy stadium she said she chose it because it has a lot of restaurants, etc. in walking distance. It has two shuttle busses that we can use to get to attractions. plus the charter bus if you are traveling on that.
