The Final Count (Down)

Well, old friends, I am *so excited* about homecoming! After who-knows-how-long I'm back in touch with Sarah (Walker) Cuison, and she just sent some photos that blew me away. My camera broke on Independent Travel, so a picture of me in front of Rome's Colosseum... was the first I'd ever seen!! I just had to stop and stare.

When we get together, we all are going to remind each other of memories we didn't know we'd forgotten.

Have you registered for Homecoming, yet?

All the funds for this event are being handled through the alumni office, so you don't have to worry about me getting my grubby hands on it! You'll pay for this event the same way you would any other reunion event (meaning if you're last-minute, you can still register late). You can go to this link: Lee University Homecoming. You can register for all events here (sports, entertainment, food, this reunion, the 5K, etc.), and also find hotel information (I'll be at the Baymont!).

By October 30 I need to give a near-final headcount. So, are you coming, Dave?

The News!

Alright my friends, hopefully you have all received your homecoming information in the mail, but if you have not, I wanted to let you know our information is live on the Lee University Homecoming Website:

There is also another page where you can indicate "yes" you are coming to the reunion:

We are all set for this event. It will be fairly simple, really just a dinner among friends with time to look at photos and re-tell stories. There may not be as much of a program like we girls planned on Valentine's Day, but I guarantee the story-telling will be just as fun!

After dinner everyone is welcome to make their own plans. I know Some people would like to attend other Homecoming events on campus, and others have children to put to bed, but I would like to open the invitation to maybe go out afterwards.

Or, as Sir Walter Hooper said it after the Lewis Society Meeting in Oxford, "Please adjourn with us to the Bird and Baby for refreshments as we continue our discussion."

Now, since we're a month out I'm currently making menu selections. I requested a "British" style menu for old times' sake, and that the children eat for free. So, when you send in $20 per person do NOT pay for your kids! If you all had teenagers we I could charge, but everyone has babies and toddlers, so the caterer is providing some kid-friendly options at no-charge. As for us, we'll get an elegant dinner, but every caterer is restricting our options (must be the busy-ness of the day). There will be ONE entree option for the whole group.

Chicken, beef or pork?

They all look good to me!!

Here's my count:
