Dear GHS Alumni,
After careful consideration, and after listening to many of your concerns, the GHSAAI has made the decision to cancel the rescheduled date of August 15, 2020 for this year’s reunion. The Wesley Center will not penalize us and has agreed to roll our deposit over to next year’s date. which is Saturday, April 10, 2021. We will be celebrating the Class of 1970 and Class of 1971.
If you already made your payment for this year’s reunion, the money will be rolled over to next year’s reunion date. If you’re not sure if you’ll be able to attend and prefer a refund, please email me at email@example.com. If we do not hear from you, we will automatically roll your payment forward; and you will not need to re-register in January unless there is a change in your contact information.
In January, we will be sending out more information regarding the 2021 reunion; and we will give those who did not register for this year’s reunion the opportunity to register for the April 10, 2021 GHSAAI Reunion.
