Reunion 2015:  Something Old and Something New

This year’s reunion promises to be as much fun as last year’s; we have a theme Something Old and Something New.  And no, it is not about a wedding in the usual sense of joining partners for life.  It is about selecting the best from the old and adding some new things and coming up with something wonderful which can be replicated in toto or tweaked as each Program Committee wants.

We have included many old favorites:  A Welcome Reception on Wednesday, a group dinner on Friday night.  Also on Friday night we will have a bonfire on the beach in front of the hotel (weather permitting).  Consider wearing your whites to the bonfire, if you want.  On Saturday, our Annual Meeting will be held on the campus in the Hardy Hall Ballroom, which we called the Auditorium.  It will be followed by our In Memoriam reading of the names of deceased alums under Friendship Oak.  Then, to wind up everything, we will have a fabulous celebratory dinner on Saturday night with buffet and cash bar.

The Program Committee also wanted to try out some new things: The Mixed Nuts luncheon on Thursday ought to be a lot of fun—it is an opportunity for you to meet and get to know women who went to Gulf Park at a different time with different rules and regulations than you had.  It will be held in the Hardy Hall Dining Room and feature a sandwich/salad/dessert/drink buffet.  Also new is the venue for Friday night group dinner which will be held at Salute, an Italian restaurant about 2 blocks from the hotel.  Look at their menu online—it sounds fabulous and several of the Program Committee can personally vouch for the quality.  Our celebratory dinner will be catered by Bacchus, also new.  We have 2 options for the venue, Pass Christian or a newly renovated location, and we will let you know at check in which one we choose.

Even the Program Committee is a mix of old and new:  Judy Williams and Penny Wright are members of the 2013-15 Board of Directors and Sherrie Shumack and Virginia Roper are newly elected members of the 2015-17 Board.  We hope to see you at Reunion 2015:  Something Old and Something New.
