Hey Fellow MOREons!
Just 10 days left until the (official) end of summer so you know what that means. Yeah, it will be hot for another month. WAIT … No! I mean it’s time to plan for our Autumn Alumni Picnic!* Put a big schulenheiser** on your calendar for Saturday October 22 and join us at Ft. Lowell Park for a gathering of family and friends.
Saturday, October 22
Ft. Lowell Park Ramada 1 (by the playground)
2998 N. Craycroft Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85712
11:30 – 4:00 or thereabouts
This time we’re back at Ft. Lowell Park, right next to the playground, so bring the kids! Ramada 1 has a grill and we’ll bring charcoal and spring for a small keg. Every time we’ve done this we’ve asked that you bring food for yourselves and a bit more to share and we always have plenty to go around. Put your hands together in appreciation of Liberti Moreno for securing the Ramada reservation and beer permit!
(TUCSON PARKS AND REC HAS A NO GLASS BOTTLE POLICY SO IF YOU BRING YOUR OWN BEVERAGES, PLEASE STICK TO PLASTIC OR METAL CONTAINERS.)
We want to reach as many alumni as possible so this announcement will appear on the PM Alumni Facebook page but we no longer have a connection on classmates.com so if you have a paid classmates.com membership, please feel free to set up a “Reunion” for this event and if you know any alumni who shun social media (Luddites one and all) please pass the word and extend a personal invitation.
We’re still trying to track down several items of memorabilia for out collection. If you have any of the following you would be willing to loan us, please bring them to the picnic. We promise to take good care of them and will return them as soon as they are copied or scanned. Wanted items include:
1991 and 2003
1994, 1998 and 2001
Photographs and any other memorabilia
Any you wish to share (be sure to clearly mark your name so they can be returned.)
Hey, you’re not getting any younger so drop on by to see how we’ve all aged, reconnect with old friends and make some ones too! Besides, if you don’t show up, how do you expect to be included in one of these wonderful group pictures we keep posting 🙂
See you on October 22nd!
*Formally called the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. First Annual Alumni Picnic but we lost count 🙁
**Schulenheiser: not sure if it’s a real word but it sounds better than “mark your calendar.” Besides, it’s fun to say “schulenheiser”
