Reunion 2003

Reunion 2003 was held August 8th. and 9th. 2003, at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Fl. Friday night was a Reception in the Alhambra Room from 7:00 to 10:00 PM with well over 200 Brothers, Sweethearts, Sponsors, Spouses and Guests. We had to pay a little extra to keep the room open until midnight but, we were having such a good time no one wanted to leave. Saturday Dinner and Dance was held in the Grand Ball Room from 7:00 to 11.00 PM. We had paid for 216 people and had to add an additional table for ten. Again we had to ask for additional time and beg to stay until 1:30 AM. After dinner and a few short speeches we danced and drank the night away.

Ray paid a jewler to add two purple stones and on the end of the chain instead of the "S" it has a gravel. Ray paid $25 for this work and at the end of his last year he sold the pin to the club for $25 with idea that the pin would be pasted from president to president. At the Reunion President Ralph Tezanos '73 proudly wears the President's Pin that had been passed down from 23 Stag Presidents.
