We have a banner!
It says: Welcome IHS Class of 1978!

The banner will make its first appearance at The Rose on April 9th for our 30th Reunion Pre-Party and Info Session which starts at 7:00 pm. Join us!

Need a Hotel Room for Reunion Weekend?
We have secured a block of rooms at the Hampton Inn on Elmira Road. It is a nice hotel, conveniently located with an indoor swimming pool and your room includes a hot breakfast in the morning! Our rate is $149 for a room with two queen beds or one king bed. The normal rate is $179.

To book rooms visit and click on Reservations and then enter your arrival date and departure date. To get the discounted rate you will need to enter IHS under the Group/Convention Code.

Our group rate is guaranteed until July 15th. After July 15th the hotel will extend the discounted rate if there are rooms available. If you are arriving before Friday, August 15th you will need to call the hotel to get the group rate extended for dates outside of our block. Our contact is Lisa Bontempi or Miranda. Just call them at 607-277-5500 and tell them you are a part of the IHS 30th Reunion group. They will take good care of you.

"Skunk 'Em Red Report"

Reunion Pre-Party and Info Session!

I was getting ready to meet Allison and Noni for our third "Planning Committee" meeting and my husband looked at me and said, "I think this is just an excuse to get together with the girls and drink."

But really, we have been doing a lot of planning!

Join us on Wednesday, April 9th at 7:00 pm at The Rose for a "30th Reunion Pre-Party and Info Session" and we'll let you know what we have been working on. Or, just join us and see who else shows up. The best part about having a reunion is reconnecting with people you knew (or did not know) thirty-years ago. It's pretty neat.

High school. I know that I was so-not-involved in high school. What's funny is that now that I teach at the Hotel School I deal with all kinds of students... the involved ones, the not so involved ones. And I get-it. Even as an undergrad Hotelie, I wasn't involved. But I graduated, left Ithaca, worked for for many years and then came back to get my Masters (and I have to say just LOVED being back in Ithaca)... and, long-story-short, now I teach 20-year olds and mentor them about getting involved! So how could I not get involved?

Enough about me. Noni said, "Keep it short."

April 9th, 7:00 pm... The Rose (Triphammer Mall) Just stop by so we know you are alive. (There have been too many surprises in the "alive" department, but we can chat about that too.)

Hope to see you soon!

did you get the postcard?

Maybe you got the postcard, maybe you didn't.

If you DID, then we have a good address for you. Yay!
If you DID get the postcard, AND you visited this website...double-yay!!
To really make our day, send us a note with your email would be great to have you on the email list.

OK. Now, if you DIDN'T get the postcard yet, either....

a) we don't know your mailing address, in which case please contact us so we can get some up-to-date info on you!

b) it's still in the mail and USPS is slow

c) we have your email address so we didn't mail it to you (but you can still see what it looked like)
