Happy Summer Class of 1993:
As hard as it is to believe, we graduated 20 years ago this year! Sometimes it feels like just yesterday and sometimes it does feel like 20 years ago. I have been grateful for the incredible world of social media that has given me the opportunity to keep in touch with many of you - at least over cyberspace. But, the wonderful news is that we will have an opportunity to connect in person this coming October. Save the Dave - Our 20 year reunion and CLU Homecoming is the weekend of October 18 - 20.
The entire weekend has several different activities taking place throughout the 3 days. Please keep an eye on the website as it continues to get updated with information about Homecoming weekend - www.callutheran.edu/alumni/homecoming/ . You can also check out our Class of 1993 facebook page - www.facebook.com/CLU1993Alumni . I am hoping to keep it updated with information about the reunion and other things our class might be interested in. Please "like" that website and share it with fellow classmates.
One change from our 10 year reunion is that there has been a general move away from doing get togethers "off campus". For our 20 year reunion, there will be an opportunity for our class to meet up on Saturday during the Alumni & Family Festival. There will be food and drink available at the festival (including wine & beer - what a change from our college years!) and our reunion class will have our own "meetup" area designated. If anyone is interested in doing something "off campus" in addition to the "meetup" during the Alumni & Family Festival, please email me and I will see if we have enough interest to try and arrange something.
One of our challenges is reaching out to our "lost" classmates or those who have not provided a current email address. If you get a chance, please check out the CLU LOST LIST and help us identify some of our friends to make sure they get all the correspondence for the upcoming reunion. In addition, it would be helpful if you checked in to make sure we have your correct address. As an incentive, alums who update their information before July 31st will be entered into a prize drawing to win a 2 night stay at the Four Season’s Westlake Village over Homecoming weekend. Information can be updated using the following link: www.callutheran.edu/alumni/plugin/update-info.php . I would love help if anyone is willing to help me reach out though email and phone to our fellow classmates to encourage folks to attend our reunion. Please send me an email if you are willing to help.
Beyond the reunion, there are many things going on at CLU. There have been lots of changes to the campus - new buildings, new athletic fields. And, CLU continues to have many opportunities for its alumni, particularly those in the area. Mark your calendars, below are some upcoming activities at CLU you might be interested in:
- Shakespeare's The Tempest and Hamlet will be performed at Kingsman Park on selected dates during July and August.
- There are also a couple of musical opportunities this fall: A Chinese Moon Festival Concert (Saturday, October 5. 2013 at 7:30 pm, Samuelson Chapel); and Los Valientes (The Courageous Ones) (Saturday, October 19, 2013 - homecoming weekend- at 7:00 pm, Samuelson Chapel).
Many things in my life have changed since our 10 year reunion: I am now living in the Washington DC area, changed jobs a couple of times, got married, and bought a house. I am sure many things have changed in your life. As your families grow and change, as your career progresses or changes directions, or if you find yourselves moving to a new location, please make sure to update CLU so we can help celebrate your successes along the way. I hope that I hear from you and can start including your updates as part of this letter.
I hope that you are able to enjoy your summer and take some time for rest and relaxation. I hope to see you in the fall!
