Douglass Reunion Committee Meeting of 4/14/07


Greetings, Sons and Daughters of Douglass!
The Douglass Reunion Committee meeting this past weekend was a good one.. Committee members got an update on their website, including the fact that we've gotten more than 4,000 hits since we signed on. (Thanks for making a great way to stay in touch with loved ones, your Douglass school, and your friends and neighbors in Riverview and South Central Kingsport!).
A decision was also made on one type of goodie to be sold at the event this summer. On sale will be tumblers with handles like the ones in the picture above, emblazoned with the Douglass Tiger logo, for the low price of only seven (7) dollars! They can hold both hot and cold beverages, and it will be a limited edition tumbler. You can order your tumbler now by just sending seven dollars to the Douglass Alumni Association, P.O. Box 1936, Kingsport, Tennessee 37660, and it will be ready for you to pick up when you arrive at the Reunion. You can, of course order as many as you want, for seven dollars apiece. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number if you pre-order. The special Douglass Tiger Tumblers can also be purchased when you arrive, but to ensure you'll get one (they may sell out before you arrive), you might want to go ahead and reserve as many as you want, by placing an order and sending in your money, then picking it or them up when you get to the Reunion.
Don't forget to send in your registration money (100 dollars per person, also payable in installments),
Also, don't forget to have your high school senior apply for a Douglass Alumni Scholarship.. the deadline is fast-approaching. College is not cheap, and every deserving Douglass Alumni descendant needs the chance to get as much funding as possible to further their education. Download the application form by clicking on the scholarship link on the's home page.. fill it out and get it in, pronto!
Our next Douglass Alumni Reunion Committee meeting will be on May 5th, 2007, at 1 PM in the Fellowship Hall at St. Mark's on Maple Street. The meetings are coming quicker now because the Reunion is soon upon us, so if you have a few minutes, drop by, enjoy the fellowship (and the snacks), and help us with the decisions that will make this 2007 Reunion one to remember!
