Deadline for registration extended

Dear 209ers,
It is early March and there is still time to RSVP that you are coming to our 50th reunion, from Friday April 24 through Sunday 26, 2015 in center city Philadelphia. The weekend is full of activities with time to reunite with classmates coming together from around the country and around the world.
  • Friday is a visit to our alma mater on Broad Street to see the Winged Victory still standing and meet with the principal.
  • Saturday afternoon is the big event, the reunion luncheon at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, sharing a meal and the afternoon with the entire group.
  • Saturday evening is more relaxed with informal get-togethers at classmates’ homes in center city.
  • Sunday is a pay-your-own-way brunch at the Bourse Building in Olde City prior to guided museum tours of either the African American Museum or the Jewish Museum, both nearby.
  • The RSVP deadline is being extended until the end of March to accommodate all comers. But please let us know as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.
  • The Ritz Carlton Hotel has expanded our room reservation block for both Friday and Saturday nights at our group’s discounted rate of $249. If you tried before to reserve and could not, try again. But do it soon as when these rooms are committed there will be no more at this rate. The rate is only available until March 25, assuming there are rooms left by that date.
A robust group of classmates have already signed on, and more are letting us know that they are on their way. The RSVP deadline is being extended until the end of March to accommodate all comers. But please let us know as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.

Post a Comment

Comments from classmates are warmly welcomed! Here are some guidelines for those unfamiliar with commenting on blogs:

Choose an identity. You need to claim some sort of an identity to leave a comment. You can either be already signed into an approved account (like Google) or you can leave a comment anonymously, without signing in. If you choose 'anonymous', that will be the heading on your comment, rather than your name. You should include your real name in your comment, of course, so we know who you are! (If you want to sign into one of the listed accounts, you should do it before selecting it from the drop-down list and writing your comment.)

(Using the anonymous setting means you don't have to have an account with any of the listed services in order to leave a comment. However, if you use one of the accounts in the drop-down list, it's possible to have your name link to your account so people can contact you.)

Because spam is such a problem on blogs and Web site comment forums, devices are in place to prevent mass spam attacks, and you will be asked to prove you are not a spam robot. You will be presented with a symbol (like a circle or square, for example) to click, or letters or numbers to type into a box. This is called a CAPTCHA (an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart"). Presumably, only humans, and not spam-spewing robots, can perform these tasks. (In the case of letters/numbers, they can sometimes be hard to read. There is a curved arrow to click on to get a different set of letters/numbers. Click on it until you get a set that you like.)

Once you have composed your comment, you can preview the comment before submitting it. If you approve of what you see, publish your comment for all of us to read.
