VIVA Las Vegas!!

The Planning Committee is pleased to announce Las Vegas as host of the 2018 JFK Mega Reunion scheduled June 22-24, 2018.

The 3 day/ 3 event weekend highlights: - Friday Warm Up Mixer, Saturday Gala Dinner Dance and Sunday Prayer Luncheon.

ALL events shall be held indoors at the Tuscany All Suites Hotel (1.5 blocks from the Strip). Expect more developing event options that may include: solo class gatherings, aerobics/health, gaming and golf.

For added comfort, we'll provide aircon shuttles from the Tuscany Hotel to the Strip, Downtown and LV airport. More details to follow including entertainment, ticket prices, hotel reservations and card payments at this website.

We thank alumni from Seattle and Las Vegas who offered to host and who advised us during our assessment site visits. We left convinced either city could host this undertaking.

However, our Seattle alumni informed us about "BIG BERTHA" - the elevated waterfront 1950's highway tear down AND associated tunneling projects, affecting infrastructure with construction forecast to peak in 2018.

Looking ahead, we have a team of passionate Vegas locals who helped create an affordable, high value and family friendly "Insider" program.

We invite ALL JFK classes to these events and will soon announce a team of 1970 to 1984 Class Reps/Point of Contacts to answer your questions and personally walk you through the events.

Join us - We look forward to another historic and epic celebration of the JFK experience in ....Fabulous Las Vegas.... GO ISLANDERS!

More members to our Planning Team

We are pleased to announce the expansion of the Executive Board to include reps from JFK classes 80 and 81, Erlinda Ungos Mesick and Flordelisa Vega Harris.

Together, we pledge to honor our classes and ALL JFK alumni through the creation of diverse events to celebrate the JFK experience.

From our FB group beginnings in 2012, to the mega events created in San Francisco (2014) and San Diego (2016) - we look forward to even greater alumni gatherings.This includes planning the next 3 day weekend event in 2018 -- Fabulous Las Vegas!

We see the benefits of combining class resources for a greater cause. For us, It was a no brainer - like our extended families and village fiestas, its embedded in Guam culture, and all part of the "Islander Way".

More fun awaits - GO ISLANDERS!

ON BEHALF of the all volunteer teams, I wish to express our deepest thanks to the attendees of the 2016 JFK Mega Reunion, San Diego.

Never in our wildest dreams did we expect 475 attendees on Gala night as we went on hyper drive in the closing weeks to make it work.

Likewise, all the other 3 supporting events were sold out - events that we could not expand. Our apologies to those who could not buy tickets.

All things considered, we are confident that you feel,  as we do,  that we still delivered the JFK Experience with a boatload of  FUN and  hopeful that we exceeded your expectations.

As it is only proper, allow me to thank the TEAM. A solid core of visionaries:

- Eddie Cruz 75,  Dionella Tanallon 77, Maggie Stein 76, Bobbie Paulino 76, Edna Luna 77, Nancy Eral 77, Lourdes Aguon 77, Ruben Maningding 77, Lou Azul 78 and Vivian Scharff 79 - 

In the absence of big time sponsors, they put in the time, risks and resources. For us, mediocrity nor failure was not an option.

My thanks to this next group of selfless pros:

- Janice Waller 74, Tess Richardson 75, Myrna Vega 75,  Linda Perez 75, Janis Jolly 76,  Roland Alfelor 76 Carlos Mangonon 76, Grace Malinao 76, Lawrence Laguana 76, Ron Miranda 77,  Pat Barro 77, Mary Farrell 77, Mike Azul 77, Julius Fernandez 77,  Geri Flores 77, Edie Aguon 77, Darlene Lujan 77, Josy Fortuna 77, Jerome Capistrano 77, Bobbie Borja 77, Rick Gomez 77, Julz Cruz 77, Ed Alvarez 78, Maria Brown 78, Francis Cruz 78, Mike Quinata 78,  Kuulei Tavares 78, Didi Pangelinan 78, Lynn Golveo 78;  Miriam Capistrano 79, Darla Golveo 79; Louisa Borja Muna 85 and the many unnamed JFKers who staffed the tables and set up operations.

The ISLANDER WAY - may she continue to live and prosper in each of us.
