Sorry guys and gals but the reunion conflicts with my wedding. See ya next time. Bill
Bill! Had we only known we could have chosen a different date! Well, congratulations!
The economy for the last several years has hit some of us very hard - drove me and a few others out of the country in search of income... I wonder if we should set up an anonymous "scholorship" fund to help people in a bad place with the reunion costs...
Doug, we had thought about doing this. The decision was made to keep the ticket prices low, so there is little or no surplus. Once certain targets are met, this may change. Certainly we could set up a fund for donations, that would go towards helping fellow grads with the cost. I will discuss it with Ela and the rest of the committee. The next committee meeting is March 9th.
That would be me lost our business of 25 years lost are home have had tons of illness...............A scholoship would be such a blessing for sure
Dave, Did the committee set up a scholarship fund? It would be great if you dould with PayPal. This would make it very easy for those of us who can afford to, anonymously help out those in need. I guess the logistics can be a bit daunting, like who gets how much? but maybe a fixed amount towards their expenses first ask first served until it is gone or no funds are left? In a non profit that I use to be on the board for, we had a scholarship fund. The only requirement was that they supply a short explanation of why they need the assistance. It went before the board and was always strictly confidential.
Can't wait to see all you guys again! (and girls! - we'll heck... I'm single again! :)
Is my 4th grade girlfriend single these days? :)
(You know who you are! :)
I am sure HE is Rich!
Oh.... that was below the belt Brad! :)
Pretty impressed by the 40 Year committee efforts. Jeff and I decided we can leave the Southern CA beach to join all of you in August. I think he remembers more names and faces that I do. Thank goodness you gave us time to study!
Looking forward to seeing ya'll again. Ted and I will be there. Dang missed the early bird rate. Curious what is included for the price? Dinner? Drinks? Photos? Entertainment? Live dancers?
Lisa, included in the price is dinner, a continuous slide show on the side, take your own photos ops, photo booth (assuming funds available), a brief program (mainly for necessary acknowledgements), the facility fees, and more. We really felt it was the best deal in terms of providing us the time and space and bang for the buck! Lots of time and opportunity for mingling and chatting. You are welcome to dance live as well. ;-)
Thanks Rich. All good. Looking forward to it and thanks again to the gang for putting in all the time and effort to make it a great gathering.
