This reunion was well attended by EA alumni from the period 1971 to 1978. Held on the 1986 Labor Day weekend at the Tysons Corner Marriott in Vienna Virginia, Lynn McCaughan worked hard to make this event a total success.
Taped in part by Jon McCaughan, these segments recall the
memorable events as they happened. Sadly, our friend and fellow
EA alum Jon left us in March 2003. More info at:

Lynn's Reunion Song
A week before the reunion was to begin Lynn McCaughan and Carol Richards gathered at Jay McGuerty's house and recorded this song on Jay's old 4 track reel-to-reel tape deck. Written by Lynn especially for this reunion occasion the song was played in the dining room after introductions by Mr. Garcia on that long ago Saturday night.
