A number of us have been kicking around an idea for our upcoming class reunion. After our 20th, I visited with a several people that were not able to make it to either the reunion or Fort Stockton. It seems the main reason for not attending the 20th was family vacation time. People had a choice of taking their family on vacation or coming to the reunion but not both. I also have heard a lot of people say they did not have ties to Fort Stockton any more and Fort Stockton just isn’t the “vacation destination” it once was.
So how about taking a cruise as a class instead of the pilgrimage to Fort Stockton for just a few days? This can combine many aspects such as, the family vacation for the summer, the 30th reunion, a discounted group rate for a cruise (so ask you’re family and friends if they would want to join you, because the more cabins we fill up, the less expensive the trip is for everyone), etc, etc.
Currently, the discussion has centered on leaving from Galveston on the first week of August, 2008. I have personally taken this trip already and it was a blast. There are so many, things to do either on the ship or in port that everyone can enjoy themselves.
You are receiving this email because I either had an updated email for you or I took it off of the 20 year list. What I have done is created an email list of everyone I had an address for and called it: email@example.com (my companies name). With this address you will be able to correspond to everyone on the list at one time simply by using that one address.
Now the big issue is getting current email and mailing address’s for everyone ASAP so all can start planning this trip well in advance. With this in mind, once I have verified all of the email address’s I currently have, I’ll send out a spread sheet of address’s we had from the 20 year reunion. When you receive this list, please update it with your current information and anyone else’s information you might have then send it back to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feedback is greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you all.
Let’s go cruising!
