An update from our
Who’s coming to the
BIGGEST WEEKEND OF THE YEAR
WOW! Be sure to save the weekend of June 8-
be the first time for several of us toattend the Golden Reunion on Sunday the 10
. Marilyn Pruyn said that the sign-up forms andinfo for this unique gathering of alums whose Classes were graduated 50 or more years ago willbe sent out on March 19th.
Now, I’m gonna do something I know you all will agree is verydifficult for me. I’m gonna hush up (on this event, only, however)!But I am more than pleased that we will also be celebrating the Class’s 55
with a Reunion onthe Friday and Saturday (June 8 & 9).
Yep, the M’s are at it again!
Here’s what I am told is
the Plan, so far:Friday evening we will be gathering at the house of
in Lakewood. We are each to
bring heavy hors d’oeuvres, deserts or the like so we can have kind of a munching light supper while we get caught up on each other’s new or refurbished tall tales. This is no sit
-down formaldinner, as Roy has told me he will be hiding all the good linen, Havilland china and especiallythe silver flat wear. I guess he knows his Classmates
well! This is a drop-in affair startingsix-ish and ending whenever.On
our dinner will be held at the
Argyle Room at Lakewood
. Roy hasarranged that we can have their private room
Also, we are going to be able to order fromtheir regular menu and pay separately (they accept cash or credit/debit cards). We will be able toorder drinks from the no-host cash bar in the restaurant. We can gather at 6:00 and eat at 7:00.No events are scheduled for Saturday afternoon, at least at this time. Details (addresses,directions and maybe even a rough map) will follow in the next two issues of HI-LIFE II.
. We have raised the amount of the Award to $1500 (from $1,000), at leastfor 2012. More on the changes we are starting will be covered is those issues, and we will have ameeting of the Committees during our 55th/ Golden Reunion weekend.
In the meantime
, ourScholarship Award Ceremony will be held at
1:00 in the Brockman Lecture Hall on a Fridayin mid-to-late April.
More details soon.
I cannot tell you how gratifying it is to see the young
man or woman react to this presentation and meet the “winner” and the parents. I have always
thought attending pays honor to the student, the School, the Class and ourselves. And it is overin 15 minutes. Please seriously consider attending if you possibly can.So . . .
see you in June!
