Hello Congo Colts,
It's Congressional School's 80th anniversary, so there's no better time to have a reunion of alumni from the 1980s - the final years of Congo's high school!
Congressional will celebrate its anniversary at The Red Carpet Gala on Saturday, March 28, at the Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel. On the evening before, Friday, March 27, the school is hosting a free happy hour on campus for all the 80's alumni, to kick-off the weekend's celebration.
Here is the reunion itinerary:
- Meet at 6:30 pm on 3/27 in the school's library for drinks and light hors d'œuvres
- At 8:00 pm we'll move our get-together to Crafthouse to continue our reunion. The Crafthouse is walking distance to the Westin and just 15-minutes from Congressional
- We'll meet up at 6:00 pm on 3/28 for The Red Carpet Gala
- After the Gala we will gather at the hotel bar for nightcap
While at Congressional, we will have a chance to chat, visit our old classrooms, see the gymnasium (remember selling candy bars to help get it built?) We'll also get to meet Congressional's amazing new Head of School, Dr. Gordon, and I may even persuade Mr. Cavanaugh to join us!
Saturday evening's Red Carpet Gala event will be tons of fun, and includes a live auction, dinner, and a DJ so we can show off our best 80's dance moves. Tickets are $150 per person. Use the buttons below to purchase tickets and reserve your hotel room.
It will be fun to see what's new and what's still the same, at the school and with each other! I look forward to reminiscing with you. In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
