EWU Cheney Campus  |  October 18-19, 2013

Dear Class of 1963:

It is very important to the Alumni Association to create a reunion experience that is incREDible.  Unfortunately, as of today, only three classmates have registered for this special weekend.  As you know, what makes this weekend so great is the ability to reminisce and spend time with friends.  After many discussions with classmates and staff, we have decided to “reboot” and try again.  We are forming a reunion committee that includes friends from the classes of 1963, 1964 and 1965 in order to create a larger, combined class reunion.  By enabling more time and inclusion of class participants in the process, we hope you will see an increased attendance.

In the next month, we will send information to complete a survey.  Our goal is to seek your preference for having the combined reunion in October 2014 or May 2015.

Thank you for your understanding and please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.  In addition, please let me know if you are interested in participating on the planning committee.

Best regards,
Lisa Poplawski
Director of Alumni Advancement
