We wanted to update everyone on the reunion and hope you’re getting the word out to other Bruin’s who may not yet be aware. The formal invitations should be mailed out next month so keep a lookout for that in your mail.  Thanks to everyone's help we have found another 35 people since the last newsletter.  We need to locate a lot more so please look over the latest missing persons list below and help us find anyone still missing.  Also, check out the information regarding the raffle and old photographs below.

The 20 Year Reunion will be a fun and casual, entertaining atmosphere with plenty of indoor space and an outdoor patio setting around a beautiful swimming pool.  Food menus are still being worked on and also be casual with a central food buffet and specialty foods served (passed) regularly around the room by hotel staff thus allowing you to roam around instead of being stuck at a table.
