Brent chaired the committee. Phil did a ton of calling and emailing to locate as many of the missionaries as possible. Tom and his wife managed most of the arrangements the day of the reunion. Loren made the DVD - I'm still amazed. Mike arranged for the building and worked with Presidents Eagar and Muren. I did the web page and kept a master email list.

We also had a lot of help from others who I can't remember because it was so long ago. We had a great catered meal and some authentic Central American food. If you'll remember, the church was full - too full - with 400 people. The organizing committee communicated mainly via email with a half dozen conference calls over the last few months before the reunion. So many of you wanted to share your bios and family photos. That contributed so much. Even though President Muren couldn't be there he said he loved catching up with you by reading your bios.

This is an open invitation to anyone who wants to participate on this year's reunion planning committee. We only hold these every five years so there is lots to do to make this special. If you're interested in helping in any way, just post a comment here and we'll get started. You don't have to be registered to post comments - just use the 'other' or 'anonymous' buttons.
