Committee Met on 7/29/2009: EEK! The Big Event is IN 5 WEEKS!

The YV69 Reunion Committee met at Bob Tamori’s house on Wednesday, dining on salad and Hawaiian chili. Please do not ask me what makes it “Hawaiian”! As usual these meetings are great fun. Guy Gettle, we missed you!

At last, the reunion does not seem like something in the distant, misty future. We turn the calendar to August this weekend and, wow, that means the reunion is only 5 short weeks away.

Our official invitations have been mailed. Our official e-mail blast went out the day after the meeting. It was decided at the meeting that the primary focus of the committee should be getting those we have already located, TO ATTEND THE REUNION.

We are still searching for our missing classmates, but have delegated this job to some wonderful classmates who were eager to volunteer for this job. If you would like to come forward to help with any aspect of the reunion, please let us know!

Some things to note:

Bob Ayres will once again be our charming MC. You have my permission to call him Ryan Seacrest. Let us know if there is something you would like to see on the program this year.

Sally (Morrison) Marin is hosting a get together at her ranch the night before the reunion for all of the former Madrigals (the elite singing group). Please call her if you know someone who belonged to this group. 925-200-0460 We are hoping to persuade the Madrigals to sing at the reunion!

Guy Gettle is in the process of developing our very own YV69 Wine! You will be able to buy a bottle to commemorate the occasion at the reunion. We have seen a preview of the label and it is beautiful.

We are inviting teachers to the reunion that taught when you were in high school! We hope to let you know soon who has accepted.

There will be an event on the Sunday after the reunion at Ygnacio Valley High School. It will be a casual get together at 11AM (brunch). We are hoping to take a walk (literally) down memory lane that morning.

Some of the committee members would like to get a group together to go to the YV Homecoming Game this fall. More about this later.

The event itself is coming together and Debbie Carlin, our fearless leader, has somehow managed to put all the pieces of this great event together. It was a little risky to put on such a big event without the help of a professional planner (like the prior reunion).

For those of you who have put on weddings for your children, putting on a reunion is a little like the weeks before the wedding day. You are happy, you are prepared, and you can’t wait for all of the pieces to merge into one amazing and happy celebration.

Can’t wait to see you there.
