Hey all. Those of you who haven't purchased tickets should probably do so SOON!! Lauren needs to put a deposit down for the event and she can't pay out of her own pocket. Tickets were $35 before June 15 and now they are $38. Get them now before they become $45 per person. Here's the payment schedule:
Now, tickets are $38.00 ( a total steal--really)
per person after July 24th: $41.00
per person after August 9th: $45.00
Tickets will also be available at the door for $50 per person.
We are also currently looking for sponsors for our reunion. If anyone is interested in helping their fellow classmates enjoy the best possible atmosphere during the event, while also receiving some excellent goodwill publicity, then this is a great opportunity. The cost would be $250 dollars which includes 2 free reunion tickets and offers you the ability to advertise your company, display your logo, or simply subject us all to an inside joke from years gone by. For more information, please contact Lauren Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We all know Lauren is a classy lady. This will be a fabulous event if we all buy our tickets ASAP and make it all possible.

We all remember Nikki Norman. Her little girl has been diagnosed with metachromatic leukodystrophy, a rare and terminal disease. Eliza has the late infantile form, the most common and most severe. Symptoms include muscle wasting and weakness, muscle rigidity, developmental delays, progressive vision loss, convulsions, trouble swallowing, paralysis and dementia. Most children with MLD do not live to age 5. The other forms start later and progress more slowly.
I advise all to read this article. It breaks my heart to hear about the pain Nikki's family is suffering but am so touched to see the strength and love she has for little Eliza. We are thinking about you Nikki and hopefully we can meet Eliza at the next "monthly birthday party."
