Alumni Association's Social/Service Weekend VI - coming this July.
Normally held on the second or third weekend in July, Social/Service Weekend is an opportunity to connect with alumni from all of the school's graduating classes for giftie fun and service to the school. Families are welcomed.
"Social Hour" extends from 5:00 pm-midnight on Friday. Housing in Caddo is free and recreates the joys of living with each other. Shared meals with co-op cooking and clean-up keep our food costs to $10 per person for the entire weekend. Meals from Friday's supper through Sunday brunch are part of the weekend.
Service projects for the school begin on Saturday morning. Participants will receive their "to-do" lists when they arrive on Friday.
A volunteer team will run "Future GiftieLand" with parental co-op childcare so alumni with children under 12 can participate in the weekend. Children over 12 are put to work on age-appropriate and adult-supervised tasks.
Saturday evening brings another Social Hour and shared meal.
We wrap up the weekend with Sunday morning brunch and the final good-byes.
To register: Email Thorn LaCaze at email@example.com and include your name, email address, class year, and the names of any guests. If you are bringing children, please give their names and ages so we can plan appropriately for co-op childcare and junior work teams. To get involved in the conversation, join the Social/Service Facebook Group.
To pack: Linens for an extra-long twin bed or a sleeping bag, your towels and toiletries, and clothes appropriate for physical labor. It can be cold in the dorms, so pack a blanket and a jacket. Don't forget your camera. Having ipods for music as we work adds to the fun. You may also want to bring your yearbooks for reminiscing and any board/card games for Social Hour. $10 per person in cash or check made payable to LSMSA Foundation (Memo: Social/Service Weekend) subsidizes the cost of our meals.
