24-Year Reunion

Reunion dates ― October 16 & 17, 2009

Dear ’84 Gustie:

Can you believe that five years have passed and it is once again time to start looking forward to our class reunion?  Believe it or not, this one will be our 25th!

Before reading any further, put this letter down and get out your PDA, your Outlook Scheduler, your iPhone, your Franklin Planner or your oversized “old-fashioned” calendar and write in GUSTIE CLASS OF 1984 – 25th REUNION on the dates OCTOBER 16-17, 2009.

Now that you’ve secured the dates, I can tell you where it is.  Saturday, October 17 will be held on campus.  We can also have an event on Friday night―wherever we decide to have it!  We’ll be working with the Alumni Office to work out the details of what our reunion weekend will look like.  We will keep you informed as the year progresses.

For now, Carole and I want to start planning the reunion and are looking for volunteers to help plan the festivities.

1)      As chair of the fundraising committee, I am looking for 20-25 people who are willing to call 10-15 classmates to update their records, invite them to the reunion and invite them to make a donation to the Gustavus Annual Fund.  We have always had great success in our reunion years and this year will be our best!  You get to choose whom you call, so it is a great way to reconnect with classmates.  If you are interested, please email me at ericson5@comcast.net or call me at:  952-975-0104.

2)      Carole is chairing the communication committee and she is looking for people to help with all aspects of communication to our class (website, guest letter writing, etc.)  Please email her at swedebabe84@hotmail.com or call her at:  952-288-2542 if you are interested.

3)      We are also looking for a group of people who can help plan the activities for reunion weekend.  Once we get a group together we will have an organizational meeting and begin planning.  Please contact Carole or me at the above email addresses or phone numbers to sign up.  We need your input, and we can’t do it without you!!

We are looking forward to the best-attended class reunion Gustavus has ever seen!  Please get the dates written down in ink and volunteer to help out.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Go Gustie Class of 1984!!
