On behalf of YOUR Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and the 2017 Winfield Johnnie Reunion Committee, because YOU have graduated from or attended St. John’s Academy or College, you are cordially invited to the gathering at the campus (now, Baden Square) on June 9-11, 2017, for the annual Winfield Reunion of Academy and College alumni. There will be, as usual, the focus on renewing the past - recalling people and events - which may have slipped off to the edges of your memory. And there will be seeing the old sites as well as the new on the “old” SJC campus. Along with the call to look to the future, to you the alumni and your Alumni Association, in the years ahead.
There will be a “mix”, then, of both the old and the new, of what is yours as alumni - all decorated in orange and black, of course! We’re counting on that “mix” to convince you to do the right thing: to decide - right now, if you haven’t done so already - to be a part of the Reunion days of fellowship and good times. This year the Planning Committee has chosen as the theme, “Johnnies Experience The Joy of Living in the Spirit.” So get together with your fellow classmates and come early and plan to be a part of the fun and festivities.
This year’s tentative schedule of events and activities can be found on this web-site. Any special events and activities put together by the honored classes will be posted on a bulletin board near the registration table. Registration will begin at 3:00 P.M. on Friday, June 9th in the Campus Center (now Baden Square Community Center) and the “goings-on” will wind down on Sunday, June 11th at Trinity Lutheran Church. What happens in between all the scheduled activities and events . . . well, to a certain extent, that’s up to you and your classmates.
Regarding the Profile Questionnaire, all profiles returned by May 1, 2017 will be published. Once gathered, we will publish the ever-popular Class Profile books (one for each anniversary class). Let me assure you: People who haven’t heard about you or from you, for however long it has been, will want to enjoy what you have to say about what’s been happening in your life and times. The most personal way to share news, of course, is to be on hand at the Reunion. But, if that’s not possible, let your spot in the Profile Book do that for you. Don’t disappoint friends/classmates by failing to send us your profile.
Sadly, a number of your classmates are “lost” - that means that we do not have a current or correct mailing address for them. If you know of anyone that is not receiving the Reporter, please let us know their current address.
Your Alumni Association Board of Directors and the 2017 Winfield Johnnie Reunion Committee emphasize that ALL alumni of ALL years and classes are invited to attend any reunion and will be welcomed. So, urge your friends/classmates and any “Johnnie” to attend!
It’s the people, not just events and schedules, which make a reunion successful. So … Come, be a part of Reunion 2017! The success of such an event depends on YOU! “Hail, St. John’s College, Hail.”
