Dear One And All
After some deliberation at the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association it was finally decided to have the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Batches of 1983/ 84 and 85 on the 16th, 17th and 18th of December 2010. Over the past few occasions the celebrations were held in August and with the rains on that time - the costs to the AA increased substantially - that's the reason for the change in dates. The exact programme will be detailed in due course but usually the programme has a CME on Day1 followed by individual class dinners, Picnic/Get-togethers on Day 2 and the big dinner on Day 3.
At this point, I would also like to keep all of you informed that I am most likely to be taking a two-year sabbatical from St. John's starting July 1st this year and the AA is likely to request one of the others in St. John's namely Babu or Sunita to help out. Will surely be around to support both the AA and our class rep.
Next, recently Victor suggested that those of us who are interested could also meet up this year. Specifically on and 2nd - exactly 25 years after joining St. John's. So please let us know if you will be coming.
Finally, my family and I are visiting the US between the 26th April and 23rd May 2009. I am definitely meeting with Anupam and Marion while in Florida and with Geetha while Washington (21st May). Will most probably spend 2 days in the NY/NJ region during the Memorial weekend before heading to Minnesota for 5 days. (The family gets back to India on 23rd May). I can be reached on +1 512 5778 243 just in case anyone would like to call. While in Bangalore my numbers will be the same.
Will look forward to hearing from you all. Please forward this to anyone I have missed and send me their address as well!
With Best Wishes,
