Buena & Ventura 40th Reunion
Due to the unforeseeable outcome regarding COVID-19 (the coronavirus), and in an abundance of caution, we are formally canceling our 40th Reunion scheduled for July 31 and August 1, 2020.
We have had lengthy discussions regarding this difficult decision, including the potential financial impacts with school and business closures, unemployment, and any future travel restrictions that may affect our alumni. In addition, with the virus yet to reach its peak in the U.S. and no idea when we would be clear of quarantine, how long it will take for recovery, and if/when we would be able to safely congregate, we feel this is the best decision for our alumni and their families, including those that live abroad.
As this (worldwide) virus and potential fallout is unprecedented, we cannot postpone the event to a date certain until this health crisis has subsided. Only then can we begin our planning process to reschedule an event for next year (2021).
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to celebrating in the future. In the interim, you and yours are in our thoughts and prayers. Be safe!
It is truly hard to believe that our 40th Reunion date has arrived and we are still in the midst of the pandemic! We are just as surprised as everyone that COVID is still thriving in our community, nation, and the world. We hope that you and yours are well and look forward to when we can, once again, begin planning our reunion. Everyone's health and safety are our top priorities so we will keep an eye on how things progress and contact everyone when we have a new date in 2021 to celebrate. In the interim our prayers are with you during this challenging time. Stay safe!
