Save the children, please.
At a U2 concert in Ireland , Bono asks the audience for some quiet. Then, in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands. Holding the audience in total silence, he says into the microphone, “Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.” A voice from near the front of the audience pierces the silence. “Fookin’ stop doin’ it, then.” (Thanks Rodney)
And this cautionary tale arrived in my in-box from another one of our classmates, whom shall remain nameless.
“Can you make a hotel suggestion? I can stay at my parents, but they live pretty far out and since we’ll be drinking, I figured we would grab a room. No sense in taking chances.
We did that for the ten year and I ended up with a 14 year old souvenir!! “
And with that, the Reunion Committee strongly encourages you to take the following under advisement during reunion weekend:
#1 – No clapping
#2 – We’re not handing out any reunion souvenirs and you shouldn’t be either. But if you do, see rule #1.
And one more time with feeling: This Friday, July 13, is the deadline for getting in your reunion payment. If you have mailed your payment since last Friday and not received an email confirmation of its receipt, please let me know via email; email@example.com
