Hey fellow MOREons!

It’s time for the 2017 Alumni Picnic Survey!

We really want your input and this year, as a bit of enticement, your completed survey can enter you into a drawing for one of three Eegee’s Coupon Cards!  (Now go back and read that using Kermit the Frog’s voice and enthusiasm in your head  )

You can access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RFNYBK8

If you know any fellow alumni who aren’t on Facebook or don’t frequent this site, please pass along the URL as we want everyone to have a chance to give their input.

Please complete the survey by the Summer Solstice (June 20.)

Thanks for your help!

2017 Spring Alumni Picnic Recap

In the future, this picnic will be referred to as the “2017 Retired Alt. Ed. Faculty Picnic*  (*attended by one student)

Not really sure what happened.  There were a few last-minute cancellations but we were expecting many, many more to attend.  It was suggested that we have these too frequently and that we should cut back to one per year or even biennially.   Several years we put out a survey and, while the response was lite, the majority preferred twice-a year picnics so we’re stumped to explain the lack of participation.  (On the up side, it was a great staff reunion )

We REALLY want your input on how often (or even if) we should hold these events so watch for a new survey in the next few weeks.  Until then, check out a few pictures at https://www.projectmorealumni.com/2017-spring-alumni-picnic-at-la-madera-park/

Hey fellow MOREons!  A final, annoying reminder about next Sunday’s Alumni Picnic …

Put a big schulenheiser* on your calendar for next Sunday and join us at La Madera Park for a gathering of family and friends.

2017 Spring Alumni Picnic
Sunday April 30, 2017
La Madera Park
2700 E La Madera Dr.
12:00 – 5:00 or thereabouts

The park has only one ramada so it will be easy to find us, lots of shade, a nice playground (so bring the kids), basketball and even horseshoes.

The Ramada has a grill and we’ll bring charcoal, BBQ tools and a few burgers and dogs.  Tom Anderson is going to spring for a small keg for those who wish to imbibe 🙂  Each time we’ve had a picnic we asked that you bring food for yourselves and a bit more to share and we’ve always had plenty to go around. (Tucson Parks and Rec has a no glass bottle policy so if you bring beverages, please stick to plastic or metal containers.)

WE NEED YOUR HELP NOTIFYING OUR FELLOW ALUMNI! If you know of any alumni (alumnus?) that doesn’t frequent Facebook or projectmorealumni.com, please extend a personal invitation.

We’re still trying to track down several items of memorabilia. 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:

Graduation Programs
Any pre-1986
1991** and 2003

Graduation Videos
Any pre-1991
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.)

See you Sunday!

*schulenheiser: not sure if it’s a real word but it sounds better than “mark your calendar.” Besides, it’s fun to say “schulenheiser”

** Project MORE office manager Jeri Ellis dug deep into the school archives and found a copy of the 1991 Graduation Program which is available for viewing on the Facebook alumni page or on projectmorealumni.com

We promise to treat them carefully and return them promptly.

Happy Groundhog Day Fellow MOREons!

If a groundhog sees its shadow there’s six more weeks of winter, if not, spring is only a month and a half away (or something like that.)  In any case, before it gets too damned hot it’s time to announce the upcoming Spring Alumni Picnic!*

Put a big schulenheiser** on your calendar for Sunday April 30, 2017 and join us at La Madera Park for a gathering of family and friends.

Sunday, April 30
La Madera Park
2700 E La Madera Dr.
12:00 – 5:00 or thereabouts

This time we’re picnicking on a Sunday in hopes that we can see some new (old) faces.

La Madera is a popular park (we’ve had nothing but compliments) and it’s frequently booked up so once again put your hands together and thank Liberti Moreno for securing a reservation almost before the ants had carried off the debris from the last picnic.

The park has only one ramada (so it will be easy to find us), lots of shade, a nice playground (so bring the kids), basketball and even horseshoes. This time we will remember to bring the horseshoes and maybe we can talk Franz into giving lessons 🙂

The Ramada has a grill and we’ll bring charcoal and BBQ tools. (We may even spring for a small keg and a few burgers and dogs.) Each time we’ve had a picnic we asked that you bring food for yourselves and a bit more to share and we’ve always had plenty to go around.
