As we are all aware, we are not as far out of the woods with COVID-19 as we had hoped.
Despite our vaccinations, there has been a continuing rise in cases due to the highly contagious Delta Variant.
In light of this information, and the fact that most of us will not be eligible for a booster shot before September 25th, we have voted to postpone our Reunion Gala celebration to May 21, 2022.
We have heard from many of you who have already cancelled, or who have expressed trepidation about the large gathering. We get it.
We realize that this is extremely disappointing and may cause some of you to change travel and family plans. We’re sorry.
Our primary concern has always been the health and safety of our fellow classmates.
We will update the website this week with more information including the procedure for rebooking your hotel room, if needed.

Saturday Night Gala: The Main Event
We hope some of you will bring memorabilia from “back in the day” for the Memory Lane display and Photo Op Areas. Please email a brief description of your objects to: Louis Pope firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Gala evening will include dinner, a DJ, dancing, and a fantastic film depicting images from our shared past. You will relive long lost memories.
You may be in it!
You do not want to miss it!!
We have been planning for almost 3 years to make this a night to remember, and a great chance to reconnect and reminisce with your WJ classmates.
Please share this information with anyone else that you would like to celebrate with us.
