One of the first things we need for next year  is the establishment of the theme – which is the collaborative responsibility of the Chaplain and the Deans. And the smoke has risen from the chimney with the choice of “Live Winni” – which is a nice, broad, affirming concept for us to celebrate amidst our 100th Anniversary celebration.
Speaking of which, Kate Fiorvanti (firstname.lastname@example.org) is still fielding suggestions for logos, themes, graphics, activities, and ideas for our celebration. This graphic has received a lot of ethusiam:
However – if you have ideas please send them along to Kate. By-lines have included: “100 Years of NNESRE” or “100 Years of Winni” or “NNESRE: 1916-2016” or “100 Years of Quality GEMS” (there was limited support for that last one....). Lots of fun activities were thrown around so we will be looking for willing volunteers and perhaps a little $ to help support the party.
So stay in touch, check out the NNESRE (Winni) Facebook page, and Live Winni – Come back for our 100th Anniversary from July 30th, 2016 to August 6th, 2014 and..... bring
