You're invited!

This year's Alumni Spring Reception will be held on Friday, June 9th at 6pm in the Taylor Gymnasium.

As was the case last year, we will combine the Spring Reception with the awarding of the Distinguished Alumni Awards.  This year's event will be a dinner for which tickets will be sold (price to be determined shortly; however, we will only be charging enough to cover our costs).  Over the coming weeks we will provide further details on the event (keep monitoring the Alumni website for more information) including ticket price and where and when to purchase them.

We are pleased to announce that this event will feature Taylor alumnus Jon Bauer ('97).  Jon was nominated in 2005 for a CGMA Covenant Award (sort of like a Christian Juno awards) for his praise and worship CD 'Life of Worship'.  Jon has served in combination as Worship Leader and Director of Worship at Spruce Grove Alliance Church for the past 10 years. When he is not leading worship at churches and events, he is a school teacher for a Christian grade 4 class in St. Albert (10 minutes northwest of Edmonton).  Jon will perform songs from his CD and lead worship at the June 9th dinner.

The Spring Reception will also include the Distinguished Alumni Awards ceremony.  The awards committee is in the process of accepting and evaluating nominations.  Forms and criteria can be downloaded in PDF form by clicking here (you can also contact the Alumni office for the forms or for further information).  Please have all nominations submitted to Taylor Alumni Relations prior to May 1, 2006.

Finally, the Spring Reception will serve as an Annual General Meeting of the Alumni Association (agenda items to be announced).  The Alumni Association Constitution requires a yearly meeting, and it has been some time since one has been held.  An agenda will be sent to all alumni by e-mail (as well as posted on the Alumni website) prior to the June 9th event.

We look forward to seeing you at Taylor on June 9th, 2006.  Keep watching the website for more details.
