MEREDITH — The Meredith/Inter-Lakes Alumni Association met recently to put together its Annual Giving Letter. This is the Association's main fund raiser for the year and the letter was sent out to all alumni that are currently in the association's database.
Classes which hold reunions are asked to send a copy of their updated class list to The Meredith/I-L Alumni Assoc., PO Box 1076, Meredith, NH 03253

Donations from the fund raiser are also used to help support the Annual Alumni Gathering, which is held each year on the first Sunday in June. This event gives all alumni the chance to reconnect with friends and class mates. The 2014 annual event will be on June 1 in the Winnipesaukee Ballroom at the Lake House at Mill Falls. The Alumni Association will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary.
Each year the 50 year Class members are the honored guests of the Alumni Association, and in 2014 the Class of 1964 will be honored. Carolyn Schoenbauer along with a committee of classmates is heading up the reunion plans and the class is looking to connect with all their classmates. The Alumni Association is also looking for alumni members who might be able to give a little of their time to help with the associations duties. Call Ann Sprague at 677-2196 for more information.
