Hello Ladies of SMA 1979!

Did you know we have a private Facebook page?  Join us there too!  The page is called SMA79. It is a secret group so it's not public.  There are only 46 who have joined us there.  But if you want to keep very private, this is your place!

So, our 40th Reunion is just around the corner!  June 28, 29, 30th, 2019. Plans are being made now!  

The first step of course is to start reaching out to all those alums from 1979 that you may still keep in touch with. Get their most current email addresses, encourage them to join us on Facebook and of course on our website that you've come to.  We pay for this website so let's use it.  There are lots of features that help keep us in touch.  Do your part and update your profile now!

This email is going out to all those emails currently on this website.  If yours or someone you know has changed their email address, please let us know.  



Hello ladies,
We are counting down to less than eight months from our 40th class reunion set to be held June 28, 29 and 30 in Portland Oregon.
Now that the dates are set we are looking at venues for 3 to 4 different activities in order to offer up lots of opportunity to meet up with your classmates from 40 years ago.
We would like to arrange a very casual get together on Friday night which we could hold at St. Mary’s for a nominal fee unless someone has an art studio, golf club, winery, or any other sort of venue where we could pay for our own drinks and appetizers that provide a somewhat quiet atmosphere to visit and catch up.
For Saturday we’re open for discussion on events for the daytime which at our 30th if you remember we organized a fun golf tournament and were able to take advantage of one of our classmates who is related to a golf course owner, Carolyn Hickey.
We’d like to do a golf event again unless more people would be interested in doing something else , all input is welcome.

For Saturday evening we would like to have the main event which would be a nice sitdown dinner, alum only, at a nice venue such as a golf course, winery, or someplace like the Mac club or any other venue that would be affordable. We have checked into the Portland Art Museum and venues like that that are very cost prohibitive by the time you add catering. If you remember at our 30th we had a nice outdoor venue in Bethany that we enjoyed a catered buffet dinner and view of the NW  hills.  If you have an "in" somewhere, let us know.

Sunday we would also like to enjoy a Potluck picnic in a park somewhere if anybody has suggestions of where we could do something like that where we could bring our spouses and or children and in a lot of cases grandchildren.
Bottom line here is were looking for suggestions and mostly for affordable venues hoping that some of you have some connections in the  Portland area.
If you have any suggestions for any of the four events please email them no later than December 15, 2018 so we can start reserving event spaces and sending out more detailed information.
Also want to make a note here that if you are in touch with any SMA ‘79 graduates that we don’t currently have on our list (insert list) or have changed their email address, home address, or any contact info in the last 10 years or home address, please guide them to the website that Angela has so graciously kept up to date for us every year This email is coming to you based on the most current information on that website. If you haven’t been on there recently and want to update photographs of family members and yourself and update business information, retirements, please do so as soon as possible.
Angela and I will be meeting again around December 15 to compile the information and begin working on reserving venues. If you would like to participate in meeting with us please include that in your email to either Angela or I.


Sincerely, your reunion coordinators once again...
