70th-Anniversary Reunion in Chesières-Villars

It's another big milestone event—Aiglon's 70th-Anniversary Alpine Bash! 

All alumni are invited to ‘soar like an Aiglon eagle' back to the mountains in Chesières next summer for the Aiglon 70th-Anniversary celebration weekend: Friday 28 June to Tuesday 2 July, 2019. "We’re planning an enlightening morning of meditation, followed by competitions, a boat excursion on Lac Léman, a tour of the Château de Chillon, a visit to Gruyère, an expedition at Solalex, a meal at Bretaye, and a Saturday evening gala with cocktails, dinner, and dancing," says Marcia Izant (Clairmont, 1971), Aiglon Alumni 70th-Anniversary chairman. Come and share your stories with fellow alumni. If you would like to donate to the auction, (ahem, ahem) please contact marcia.izant@gmail.com. We need some dazzling holiday packages and eye-catching merchandise to generate some buzz!

“If I can’t donate a week beachside in the Seychelles to the auction, is there something else I can do to help?”

Oh, we are SO glad you asked. It turns out we want to assemble a collection of Aiglon stories we can publish in advance of the event: adventures and misadventures while you were in school as well as anecdotes about Aiglon friends and faculty. Rack your brains. Then submit your memories here. Just one request—please don’t make stuff up.

You can check out the school’s Anniversary event page at https://www.aiglonlife.ch/70th/ and at https://www.foacevents.org (the FOAC’s official Anniversary Reunion page). And while you’re on the FOAC Events site, don’t forget to take a look at some of the amazing offerings up for bid in our auction.

 You never forget the first time you flew into (or over) Switzerland.

Class of 1976 (& Friends) 40th Reunion
Jun
29
to Jul 3

Class of 1976 (& Friends) 40th Reunion

To see your personal video invitation, click here and type in the password 'reunion' when prompted.

Is it possible that 1976 was forty years ago? Line Stump Magnin pulled out a calculator and did the math. She says numbers don't lie—although they can be fudged. So everybody who was at Aiglon during those halcyon days (whether actually in the class of '76 or not) is invited to a big bash on the Mountain next summer. People have been reserving their places on Line's Facebook page, under 'events': ('29 June to 03 July 2016   40th Reunion for Class of 1976'). There's also a reservation page on the Aiglon Life site.  Note that the first events are actually scheduled for the 30th, though most people (40 so far) are arriving the day before. Contact us if you haven't gotten a Facebook invitation or need more information.

Sandro Corsini posted this: "Most importantly I will again lead a group expedition from Col de la Croix to Bretaye and Lac Noire, over an alpine ridge which is one of my favorite walks in the world! The plan is to then meet with all for a picnic lunch, near the lake. Can't wait!"

So we'll need a few oxygen tanks, a guitar, and somebody who can do a passable impression of Julie Andrews singing Do-Re-Mi. Dust off your hiking boots and start learning the lyrics now. We'll see you in the Alps next summer!
