On Friday, September 15th, and Saturday, September 16th, 2017, the Washington University Dental Alumni Association (WUDAA) will continue our tradition of holding our meetings and Continuing Education classes at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in the Central West End. The weekend will offer Continuing Education, pre-planned Alumni activities and a walk down Memory Lane in gorgeous fall weather in St. Louis.
Friday evening, September 15th, your Alumni Association hosts our traditional Reception/Cocktail Party, 5:50 - 7:30pm at the Alumni House, 6420 Forsyth Blvd, main campus. This gathering is always well attended and is the best place to see classmates, other Alums and many of our previous instructors. The Alumni Association provides a photographer who can photograph classmates and class reunions during this weekend. Shuttle buses will take people from the Chase to the Alumni House and back. Buses depart from the Chase/Lindell access, beginning at 5:00p. The perfect time to schedule your Class Reunion dinner party may be after this event or on Saturday night, or both.
Saturday morning, September 16th, the WUDAA CE program begins at 8:00am at the Chase.
A continental Breakfast is included. This usually wraps up around noon.
Afternoon provides some down time. There is a new Blues Museum downtown, The City Museum is a one of a kind treat, The Art Museum, History Museum & Zoo all are in Forest Park, a Brewery Tour, and the Botanical Gardens are all nice ways to spend the afternoon. Of course lounging poolside at the Chase is pretty great too.
There will be no Saturday evening WUDAA Banquet in 2017. This will provide attending classes the opportunity to hold additional class functions.
The Chase Park Plaza Hotel is the hotel closest to the Friday reception. The Saturday morning Continuing Education is held at the Chase. There are many things to do in St. Louis and if you go to www.explorestlouis.com/visitors/25things.asp, you will be rewarded with an array of wonderful opportunities to reconnect with the city. St. Louis is slowly undergoing a rejuvenation and the results are terrific! Please contact me if you need any additional information. I look forward to seeing each of you.
Sincerely, Bob French ‘89, President WUDAA
