Each year we incur expenses related to the annual reunion. We usually send out one or two mailings to our mailing list about the upcoming reunion, and we still have ~90 people on our mailing list without email addresses. For 2017 that cost $138.
Th other major expense is for the meeting room at the hotel during the reunion. We always have a room open on Friday and Saturday to serve as a meeting place for people during the weekend. Most hotels will provide the room at no cost if we reach a minimum number of rooms booked. Unfortunately we did not reach the minimum this year. The hotel was nice enough to offer us the room for free on Friday and only charged us $150, half of the normal rate, for Saturday.
If you would like to make a donation and help out with the costs, you can use the PayPal donate button on this page. If you pay with a check, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send the necessary information.
Thank you for your generosity!
