Saco'69 35th Reunion

Up 1986 Reunion 1996 Reunion Saco'69 35th Reunion 2008Reunion

A total of 31 “colegas” – members of the EA Class of ’69 (aka “Saco ‘69”) along with members of several other classes, friends and family – met for a weekend reunion at the Lago Mar Hotel and Resort in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, July 9-11, 2004, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the class’ graduation. The following weekend, a group of 7 met for a luncheon in Rio to celebrate the occasion. This web page is intended to share photos of these events – in hopes of bringing back great memories, making us all feel a little “closer”, and encouraging everyone to attend future reunions!

The Lago Mar was a perfect site – right on the praia, beautiful lagoon piscina, and excellent “just like Rio” hot/humid weather and atmosphere.  Activities at the Lago Mar reunion included:

bulletWelcome reception/dinner on Friday night – an outdoor cookout – name badges with photos from the yearbook on them – lots of laughs!
bulletDinner Saturday night at a rodizio style churrascaria, including caipirinhas and a great impromptu speech by Dr. Brown (who, along with wife Shirley, attended the whole reunion).
bulletHospitality suite receptions each night – including reviewing old yearbooks and the Tatui newspapers, copies of old Brazil Herald front pages, and other photos and memorabilia.
bulletBreakfasts and lunches out in the fresh air by the pool.
bulletA fun dinner at a Cuban restaurant on Sunday evening for the 18 who “just had” to stay one more night!

The Rio luncheon was held at the PAX restaurant at Praça Nossa Senhora da Paz. It was enjoyed by all who attended – all of whom said: “Que pena that more of our friends could not attend because this was sooooo much fun and they really would have enjoyed it!!!”
