Final Schedule Announced for 2005 USSYAA Alumni Weekend

February 7, 2005

In only three weeks, the USSYAA will be holding its annual dinner and meeting as part of our "Washington Weekend." This year's annual dinner will be held at the home of our Liaison Officer, Michael Sundermeyer, on Friday, February 25, starting at 7:30pm. The cost for the dinner is $55 per attendee for alumni from 1997 or earlier; a reduced rate of $25 per attendee is available for alumni from 1998 through 2004. As in years past, this promises to be a memorable evening of reminiscing with friends, old and new, and enjoying a fine catered buffet dinner in an intimate setting. Detailed directions to Michael's home are at the end of this message.

The next morning, the annual meeting of the US Senate Youth Alumni Association will be held at the law offices of Williams and Connolly. The meeting is a great opportunity to get in touch with the mission of the USSYAA. There is no cost for attendance, and the meeting will begin prompty at 9:00am.

Because of the short amount of time between now and Washington Weekend, we ask that you please send your payment for the dinner and/or RSVP for the annual meeting as soon as possible. Please include your name, current address, and preferred e-mail address, and mail a check for the total amount of the dinner to:

US Senate Youth Alumni Association
PO Box 1798
Washington, DC 20013-1798

In addition, we are always accepting tax-deductible donations for the USSYAA General Fund and the Rosalie Wynn and George Randolph Hearst Sr. Scholarship Fund. You may pay for your dinner and make a donation with a single check. Please include a note with your check to indicate how you would like any additional donations allocated.

Although we had planned to hold our dinner and meeting on Capitol Hill, logistical and financial hurdles prevented us from carrying through with those plans this year. Despite this setback, we know you will not be disappointed with this year's events in Washington.
