The Boone Society
2018 National Conference and Reunion
The Boone Society will hold its 2018 National Conference and Reunion, June 20-24th in Lexington, KY.
The host hotel is the Hilton Lexington/Downtown. It is centrally located with restaurants and shopping within walking distance. They have a great rate and complimentary airport shuttle.
This trip has three days of field trips to historical Boone related sites. We have contracted once again with Bluegrass Tours. They are a quality coach company and very accommodating. We have reserved two 55 passenger coaches in anticipation of the attendance we expect. Hopefully a third will be added as we fill up the first two. Let’s make this the greatest conference and reunion ever.
Special events will include a wreath laying at the Daniel Boone Memorial, at the Kentucky National Guard, and the entire day at Fort Boonesborough on Saturday.
The fort has moved its traditional event called “Descendant’s at Fort Boonesborough” to
our date. They are so excited about our visit and a special program is being planned. Descendants from other families are encouraged, and we hope to share our families’ history with them. Stay tuned for more exciting activities that day.
Day trip lunches will be provided at Buffalo Trace Distillery, Blue Licks Park and at Fort Boonesborough.
All of these are hearty lunches and feature local cuisine. Also included in your reservation is a welcome dinner reception on Wednesday night June 20th, and the Banquet on Saturday night at the Hilton.
Dinner music will be provided by Larry Spisak. Both of them participated in America’s Frontier History Expedition in May 2016. There will be a photo display of that expedition by Ric Lambert, gun maker and photographer.
There will be a hospitality room for tables with our members to spend time together and it will also hold silent auction items. If you have anything to donate to the table, please bring it with you or ship to Sam Compton, 118 Fairways Drive, Hendersonville, TN 37075. Proceeds from the auction will go to a benefit determined by the Boone Society on Saturday night.

Hope to see you in Lexington, KY in 2018.
