All-Class Picnic 2013 - Planning now!

The first All-Class Picnic planning meeting will be held tomorrow, January 9th, at Picnic Chair Barbara Ward Thompson's house!

It takes a lot of planning, organization, fresh ideas, refinement of old ideas, scrambling, unscrambling, note-taking, e'mailing, telephoning, and determination to put on a huge event like the Sedro-Woolley High School Alumni Association All-Class Picnic!  Are you on the committee?  You should be!  Are you a volunteer for the event?  You should be!  It's always more fun when you're a direct participant!

Our annual picnic will be Saturday, July 13, 2013 (that's easy to remember!) at beautiful Riverfront Park in Sedro-Woolley.  You can reserve your picnic lunch now - the reservation form will be in the upcoming newsletter, or just visit our web site to pay your dues and for your picnic!

Classes that plan to erect their own tents on site should contact Barb as soon as possible to ensure that she has mapped out space for you.  This is a VERY POPULAR option for many classes - more each year.

Also, if your class has a sign, plan to bring it!  If not, think about acquiring one now!  Nice and early -  no rush.  Need t-shirts and sweatshirts for your class to wear and proudly display your graduating year?  Again, it's time to design and order!

I wonder if assistant picnic chair Mike Martin '67 can keep up with Barb Thompson '43...plan to attend and find out!
