Quick reunion update….. We have secured a venue for our 20 Year Reunion!!

Hyatt Lisle
1400 Corporetum Dr
Lisle IL 60532

Saturday, July 24th 2010
7:30pm – 12:30pm (tentative time)
(after 12:30, we can still stay in the atrium, but it opens to the public)

The hotel is located off I-88/rt53 (just over 15 miles from aurora). So it is a good
distance to the events at my house on Friday night and IMSA on the weekend (while still
off the highway for those who want to venture into the city or elsewhere to visit with
other friends and family). Rooms have been set aside for us for a special rate. They
will block the rooms for us until 7/6/2010 (after which they will be open for anyone to
reserve). There are other events going on that weekend, so I would suggest you book
asap. Room rates (for both friday and saturday night) are:
$89/night – standard room
$129/night – panaromic suite
To reserve your room, you can call 800.233.1234 and mention you are reserving for the
“IMSA 20 year High School Reunion”.

The reunion will be held at the hotel’s atrium. The evening will be a reception type
event for a casual feel. We will have passed hors d’oeuvres, light dinner, desserts,
and an open bar for most of the night. I will be DJ’ing for part of the night, and we
will have some other surprises for entertainment. Ticket prices are $85pp. I will be
posting some information soon where you can purchase your tickets.

I will also be sending out an evite soon so that we can track who is RSVP’ing along with
the site to purchase tickets shortly… Please contact me if you have any questions.

*** for those not following along in facebook, here is the other information posted a
few months ago ***

Lots of questions have been coming up about our reunion, so I thought I?d send out a
little email to update everyone on some of the plans that are in place or in the works?
Our reunion will be held in conjunction with IMSA?s Alumni Weekend. Here is a rough
schedule of the weekend?s events:

Friday, July 23rd

Night – I will have an informal gathering at my place. I will be opening this up to the
surrounding classes (89,90,91,92). More information to come soon?.

Saturday, July 24th

Day ? IMSA will have an open house during the day. This event is open to all classes (in
particular, the classes of 1990/1995/2000/2005 will be attending since it is their
respective reunions). This is a family event and there will be some children?s
activities hosted by the AAI.

Night ? Our Reunion!!! Amy Gurbacki Berry and I are working out the final details and
will be emailing the official plans soon! We are close to finalizing the location and
details? (hang tight!)

Sunday, July 25th

I figure most people will be up late this day, so we are not going to plan anything
official. There will be a few suggested plans (ie: brunch, family outing, etc) for those
who aren?t travelling right away and just don?t want their weekend to end!

Some other things in the works that we need your help on:

Finding Alumni ? We have quite a few class members in our facebook group. Please help
get some of the others missing to join! I will be sending out an email to everyone based
on their registered email address with myIMSA. I will also be compiling a list of alumni
who are on facebook, available via email, or lost. Everyone?s help would be greatly
appreciated in trying to hunt down those who aren?t facebook/email connected.

Photo/Videos ? Aimee Wonderlick Walter has offered to help compile photo/videos into a
slide show for the reunion. Please contact her with anything you would like to share
with for the reunion night.

Class Gift ? I have had a few conversations with the IMSA Fund to see if we can combine
IMSA Fund giving with a ?class of 1990 reunion gift? to IMSA. We are looking into
something that will benefit the students directly. With Scott?s recent passing, it would
be great to have a gift that can be given in his memory. If you have any ideas, please
let me know.

I will be posting this information on the facebook group page
( Please
look there for future information or if you wish to help work out some details. I will
follow-up with emails to the class as any of the above plans become finalized. Also,
please feel free to email me directly if you wish to help with any of the planning!

Thanks, and see you soon in July!
