Dear Vintage Grapes:
At long last, after another five years, the chance to see each other is just two months
away! The entire committee has been working hard to plan an event filled weekend which
I am sure will prove to help us all create even more memories together.
Some of the highlights about our reunion weekend in addition to the activities planned by
Early arrivers gathering at Papa's on Thursday night, May 14.
Party following the all class dinner on Friday night, May 15th graciously hosted by
Miguel, Juan and Lobo. We will also have a band!
Farewell brunch on Sunday hosted by Haley and Elizabeth!
In addition, this reunion, we will have a big turn out from our overseas classmates, especially from Latin America! This reunion will be a special opportunity to reconnect! For
those of you who will not be able to attend but still want to make your presence felt, we will
set up Skype for calling into the class meeting. If you're interested, feel free to email myself
or Noreen with your Skype ID and we will make sure you get connected.
Also, for our class dinner on Saturday night May 16, please relax and dress casual! But
also note that our uniform for the alumni parade will be white button shirts and khaki
I hope that you have all been able to make your arrangements for travel and housing and
that we will see you in May. If you have not yet had a chance, please do be sure to get
online and register for the reunion. And while you're at it, why not click the link and make
a small donation of $19.85 to Culver. Our very modest goal is to increase participation and
a challenge which you will read about from Haley.
As ever, the committee stands ready to assist however we can, so if you have any concerns
or questions, please do feel free to contact any of us. And until May, wishing you all the
best and warmer weather!
SEE YOU SOON!
