VHS Alumni meeting canceled
The annual meeting of the Vevay High School Alumni Association has been canceled for this year.
Normally the gathering occurs during the Saturday afternoon of the Swiss Wine Festival, but concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic and the canceling of the Wine Festival for 2020 brought the alumni’s board of directors to its decision. A letter is being sent to all of the alumni members who attended in 2019 informing them of the decision.
In a statement from the directors, the board announced:
It is with much regret that we are writing to inform you that the 2020 Vevay High School Alumni Dinner Meeting has been canceled by the consensus of the officers. We all agreed that due to the cancellation of the 2020 Swiss Wine Festival, and the continued concerns and uncertainty regarding COVID-19, it is in the best interests of our alumni to not meet together this summer. We look forward to planning a fantastic dinner meeting in 2021!”
The meeting is signed by the Alumni officers: President Casey Banta; Vice President Margaret Ann Rowlett; Treasurer Karen Miller; and Secretary Cynthia Griffith.
