Notes from the President
I hope everyone is looking forward to our September 21 meeting at Yacovelli’s. If you don’t have your reservations in yet, now would be a good time to send them.
We will be preparing boodle boxes for cadets and graduates, for the all parents; we need to know the academic company (A1, A2, …, H4) for your cadet. This is required to send packages to your cadet. Your cadet might have moved from a different company, please verify the company number.
We will also want to hear from parents who have been to
And we will want to also answer questions from ’07 Parents who are planning for Plebe Parent Weekend.
Grad parents are responsible for door prizes.
Please make sure and send your membership dues in as soon as possible for the coming year. The membership form is on the website. We will need the information for the boodle meeting and for preparing the member booklet for the upcoming year.
See you in September.
