Join us for a reunion weekend April 4 - 6, 2008 at SHIP as we remember our friend, our sister, Jennifer Lisman Bunich.

Friday April 4th -
6 pm - Relay For Life - Seth Grove Stadium
This campaign sponsored by the American Cancer Socitey is a 12 hour relay beginning at 6 pm Friday and continuting until 6 am Saturday morning. We will join various campus organizations to raise money for this worthy cause - all monies raised by the AOIIs will be donated in Jen's name. As part of the relay, luminaries will be sold for $10 to help to light the track (and they may be dedicated to someone). The sisters will be mailing these forms to everyone the beginning of March with all the information (and we will update this site so continue to check in!).

Saturday April 5:
11 am - Memorial Service for Jennifer Lisman Bunich Location TBD
The memorial ritual ceremony is not limited to only AOII sisters and -great news- alumnae do not have to wear white!!! Thanks for the info, Danette!

Here's another option for people. If anyone wants to make their own album pages prior to the April meeting, they could do so and bring them or send them to me ahead of time. (These need to be CM pages, see below). Here are some tips for either sending stuff or creating one's own page:
-Pictures, pictures, pictures - whatever you can find is great. Get copies made at your local developing place if you can't part with what you have.
-Memorabilia is great. Old notes, paper pandas made by your little/Aunt Stella/big, etc. that you still have for some reason (I do!)
-A memory-filled note in your own handwriting - it's more personal than typed. Use acid free, lignin free paper if you can and a special scrapbooking pen. If you can't beg, borrow, or buy these, write one anyway. A note that may yellow over time is better than none. Just don't use a Sharpie - they really bleed over time. If you're at a loss as to what to say, consider putting "I remember..." at the top of your note, then bullet point things underneath.
-Any poems, quotes, special words that might enhance the album, either on your page or others. We will probably have some blank backs to pages that will need "fillers". Poems are perfect for this.
-If you're making your own pages, please use Creative Memories pages (any color) since that is what will fit in the album we'll use.
-Lastly, if there are sisters who don't have pictures or memorabilia, but would like to contribute to the album, they could still send remembrances - either written (as suggested above) or in e-mail format. I'll create several pages of that kind-of donation.
