(pictured above: Class of '69's reunion accomplishments table)
Thanks to those of you who have already responded to our call to bring to reunion things that embody what you consider your major accomplishments or prized creations in the past few years. Ideally we would like to see the things themselves, but if you can't carry them in a suitcase, it's OK to show a photo or program or other record (we can't display videos, alas). We are looking for professional as well as hobby/recreational milestones including:
- Artworks in any medium
- Craft objects that you made (knitting, needlework, macrame, furniture, pottery, stained glass, jewelry, you name it)
- Musical performances; compositions
- Theatrical performances or stage designs, lighting, costumes
- Dress/clothing design, sewing
- Food (recipes, cookbooks, websites)
- Publications (books and articles)
- Architectural plans; interior decoration
- Sports events (marathons, competitions, games)
- Community, educational and charitable activities
Surprise us with what you have been doing that made you proud and want to share!
Send a one-line title of your object/activity (including medium, date, bibliographical reference for publications) and 2-3 sentences about what this meant to you to:
DEADLINE is MAY 23 [this is the last possible date, because I need to print out this material and line up display tables). We would really like to hear from everyone, because we are sure that everyone has a talent to share. This is also a good way to find classmates with expertise in something that interests you (improve your cooking! your flower arranging! read new novels!).
All materials should be brought to Shafer between 9-10 am on Saturday, June 4, and picked up on Sunday after the parade. We cannot be responsible for losses or damage (don't bring the diamond ring you designed), but this is the dorm where our class will be staying, and we are hopeful that there will be people around most of the time. Normally the dorms can only be entered through a Wellesley card swipe, so there should be someone there to monitor entry.
Let me know if you have questions, and I look forward to hearing from you.
