We are planning to have a big reunion at the Orlando Airport Marriott every four years, starting with the 2000 Reunion. This will give us a reunion every election year. If we run out of things to talk about, then we can argue politics! The four year cycle also means that the reunions will happen each leap year. Its not too early to plan for the 2004 reunion! Spread the word and please tell your FCA friends to register with us!
The 2000 FCA reunion will be at the Orlando Airport Marriott on July 28, and 29! We expect over a hundred alumni and their family members to attend.
We'll see you in sunny Florida!

Many of you don't know me. My name is Deb Hulse DeHaven-'75. (My brother Bear Thompson graduated in '72.) I was given the task of making name tags and putting together "bio's" and an "address" book of those we located to hand out at the Reuinon. Well folks, time is drawing near and we've yet to receive info from a bunch of you....If you don't wish to be included - that's fine - send me a quick "no thanks"... that'll do...
Likewise... if you'd been planning to come to the Reunion, but hadn't taken the time to send your checks to Josie for the banquet... you need to do it NOW! (If you want to stay at the Marriott still... remember to mention you are with FCA... it may already be to late to get the discount- but it's worth a shot!)
It'll be $35 (CASH) at the door for the banquet - if we have room... (and NO- it does NOT matter if you graduated... if you ATTENDED... you are INVITED!!) and right now - we are way over original "count" ....SO PLEASE... BE IN OUR COUNT!!!!
If you haven't sent bio info... here's what I need... (KEEP IT SIMPLE!!!):
Married: How long? Spouse's Name?
Here's mine as an example:
Deb Hulse DeHaven- class of '75... worked in the family business,
Charles Chips for 14 years following high-school. Went on to the Quaker Oats Company,
moving around the East Coast, for 10 years. Currently back in my home-town of St.
Petersburg, Florida, managing an office for a clinical psychologist. Divorced many
years,with no children, I share my life many good friends, two very old kitty-cats... and
Fondest memory: Probably arranging a reverse "panty-raid" on the boys dorm a couple of weeks before graduation... and the ensuing conversation with Col. Allen once he discovered who was behind it... ah yes... there's more to that story!!
Anyway- stuff like that...cute - but, please G-rated!
Can't wait to see You!!!

We need to know if you are planning on attending the Reunion, even if you will be staying in other places and will only be attending the Banquet. Please email me, Mary Lynn, at LadyKiter@aol.com so we can make our lists of whom has paid and for what. Please put on your check whether it is for Marriott rooms, banquet, or both. Peter Thorpe, Thorpeart@aol.com, and I were at the 1990 Reunion and we'll be glad to answer any questions. Also, please tell your FCA friends. We want everyone there!

This photo of the Marriott's pool area was taken during the 1990 FCA reunion. It
was a good place to gather during the day. Don't forget to pack your swim suit!
