Clouds, rain, or any other kind of bad weather, cannot put a damper on Maplewood Academy’s very special Alumni Weekend for 2016. Having a familiar bond is one of the many things Maplewood Academy is about. I can surely tell you that once you enter Maplewood Academy, you are automatically part of a big family. “Alumni Weekend” is all about reconnecting with people, whether it be reconnecting with teachers or reconnecting with fellow classmates. This event is one of the most heartwarming and special events of the year at Maplewood and we would love to have you join us! While we celebrate all alumni who join us, the honor classes for this year include the class of 1951, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006.
The weekend is filled with wonderful programs including vespers by the 50-Year Class, worshiping together on Sabbath, Alumni Music Program and the evening Talent Show! Alumni and current students will share their talents and it is sure to be a special time together.
Each year at Alumni Weekend, Maplewood Academy has an “Alumni Golf Tournament.” This special event supports our worthy student fund. Golf player teams select worthy students to play for during a round of golf. Each team competes for various prize money, all which goes in scholarships to various worthy students. If you would like to sign up to play in the tournament or sponsor the golf tournament, please contact Christine Haefner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 320-587-2830.
Alumni weekend is an opportunity to say thank you to the people and programs that have helped to influence your life. In Psalms 133 verse 1 it says, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.” I would have to agree with King David on this one, because Maplewood Academy is not just a regular school, it is a school that is very passionate about developing closer relationships with God and when you go to Alumni Weekend, you are not only going to socialize and have a great time with friends, but you will be able to come together and have a time to talk with one another on how many blessings God has given you over the years. It is such a great and beautiful experience. Don’t miss this event!! Come join us on October 6-9, 2016. Come to connect, reminisce and inspire.
