Greetings Friends,

Twenty-five years ago we gathered for the first Student Development Seminar in Neskowin, Oregon.

 

Recently we gathered for the twenty-fifth and final SDS amid the magic of Menucha.

 

We always knew there would be a final SDS, and while there were misty eyes at the end, we know it has been an incredible run. “The Kids” are eternally grateful to you for making our life better and providing memories that will nurture us forever.

 

Last year we were fortunate to hold a reunion at Menucha and enjoy a special element of SDS which none of us have ever been able to fully explain. One thing that became so apparent at that reunion, was that we need to end this magic with one more reunion. So while we just completed the 25th Student Development Seminar, we would like to gather as many of you as possible one more time. Next summer we will gather at Menucha for one final round of magic on August 19th and 20th. Much like the SDS you attended, we will spend the night, eat a lot of food and make magic. We have managed to tuck away enough of Scoop’s contributions so that this reunion is on Scoop. Thank you Scoop.

 

As you might imagine, gathering all of you may take a while, so I would like to ask you to help.  While August 2017 is almost a year away, would you take a moment and let me know if you would like to join us should your schedule permit so, we can get a sense of how large the group will be. I will get back to you in the Spring to confirm, if this date works for you. All I need now is to know if you are interested. Please share this information with any other sds’ers you stay in touch with through your social media. This has all the makings of a rock solid special time. We hope you can join us.

 

If you feel you can join us – pending your schedule – please let me know so I can send more information as we get closer to the date. Don.Johnson@oregonstate.edu
