The weekend of October 7-9 should have been the first official on-island reunion for Island School alumni. However, due to damages and unforeseen obstacles caused by Hurricane Irene in late August, the original plans for this reunion required some adjustment. Despite the various setbacks, The Island School was still more than happy to welcome back the small number of alumni who made the trek to Eleuthera last weekend. Gracie Payne (F’01), Patrick DiLoreto (F’04), John DiLoreto (F’08), Wes Mize (S’06), and Kevin Delaney (F’08) joined us for a weekend full of all things Island School!

We ran to High Rock and took the plunge, went out to the ooids sandbar, helped out with CEI’s shark research program, ate conch, spent the afternoon at Lighthouse, and danced the night away to the Rum Runners to celebrate Chris Maxey’s 50th birthday. It was great fun and we wish more alums had been able to join us. Thank you to everyone who came out and helped to pull this weekend off, in spite of mother nature. We wish all alumni many happy returns to Eleuthera!
