Hi everyone! I have received several calls regarding the guaranteed seating deadline of May 1 that I had placed on the reunion registration form. This is the same statement that was on the Lafayette reunion registration form. It does not mean that you cannot register or come if you do not have the form to me by May 1. I do apologize if anyone has mistaken this as a cut off date for reunion attendance. We will have plenty of room on the buses and if need be we will get another bus. We want all to come. I have taken the statement out of the next newsletter which is now complete and will be sent out by end of next week. Look forward to seeing everyone.
