Our reunion, which has typically been held during Homecoming week, will most likely be the second or third week of October 2020. We hope to have exact dates by the first of the year in 2020 when the football schedule is released, so everyone will have plenty of time to lock down their plans.
The next phase of our effort will focus on activities at the reunion. We will research and suggest possible activities in addition to the typical activities planned by the University. Once we put together a preliminary list of possible activities we will be reaching out to everyone to determine their level of interest in attending the reunion, what activities they are interested in, as well as soliciting any additional ideas.
We are considering pursuing and providing a Class Gift to Speed School, in the name of our 1970 Class at our Golden Reunion, for those that are interested and able to contribute. We know that not everyone will be able to or willing to contribute to a Class Gift, which is understood and perfectly fine. However, if you regularly contribute or would like to contribute to Speed School this would be a perfect opportunity to make your gift more impactful. Please consider this option to join some of your classmates in a Class Gift. As we develop this idea, we will be communicating on how to contribute and what the options there will be for the gift – like a one- time gift for a project or possibly an endowment.
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please feel free to contact any of us on the Golden Reunion Committee.
