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, lunch 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
UPDATE: (April 12) Almost 800 people have registered for the Reunion. That means we’re at capacity. (And matters are complicated by the fact that Beau Soleil is having its graduation the same weekend!) If you’d like to attend, you need to contact Nathalie Wildeboer at email@example.com ASAP and ask her to put your name on the waiting list.
Take a peek at six of the items up for bid in our auction:
Clockwise from the upper left: a weekend at the Hôtel Ermitage de l‘Oasis, on the Mediterranean, near Cannes; Golf at Beaverbrook, in Surrey, just outside London; a week at Siri Mendira Villas, in Bali; one night and dinner for two at Margutta|19 in Rome; two premium tickets to “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” plus a night at the Hotel Bayerische Hof in Munich; and a week at a condo at Alta, Utah.
