September 10, 1990
Dear Charter Member of the B-CC Alumni Association:
First of all , a heartfelt thank you goes out to you for becoming a charter member of the Bethesda - Chevy Chase High School Alumni Association. Because of your support, the Alumni Association is well on its way to success. With a membership already totaling 403, seventy-six percent of all graduating classes are represented, and members are now living in forty-one states and two foreign countries. A complete list of members by class and geographic location will be forthcoming in the fall issue of the Alumni Newsletter.
As a small token of appreciation, enclosed you will find a B-CC alumni window decal. Since the initial membership drive has been completed, we now face the challenge of spreading the word and increasing the association's membership. Everyone can help in this effort by displaying the window decal, talking to fellow alumni, and using the enclosed membership form to recruit at least one new member. Our goal is to reach a membership of 1000 by June of 1991, but this cannot be done without your help.
Our first Alumni Association meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 10, 1990, at 8:00 PM in the B-CC cafeteria. A chairperson from each class will be selected, and a fund-raising social activity will be planned for the spring of 1991. Although those of you who live in the local area are more likely to attend this meeting, those who cannot attend should feel free to send any comments or suggestion to the Alumni Office.
You are cordially invited to attend B-CC's 1990 Homecoming festivities on the weekend of October 12, 1990. An alumni reception, sponsored by the class of 1993, will be held in the Blue and Gold Room above the gymnasium at 6:30 PM on Friday, October 12th. The reception will be followed by the Homecoming parade, football game, and half time ceremonies honoring the 50th graduating class of 1940, as well as all alumni. The class of 1991 has chosen "The World of Disney" as the Homecoming theme. The presence of many alumni would certainly add to the magic of this special evening at Guckeyson Memorial Stadium!
Once again, thank you for your support and any efforts you can make in helping to attain our membership goal! Your comments and suggestions have been appreciated. Keep the ideas, articles, and news items coming! The B-CC Alumni Office phone number is 301-657-4917. Let's keep in touch!
B-CC Alumni Coordinator
