More than a Gathering, It’s a Reunion – On the Pacific Campus in Stockton
The California Cornish Cousins will celebrate their “Silver Threads Among the Gold” 25th anniversary gathering and reunion by the banks of the Calaveras River on the Pacific campus, a gleaming jewel near the center of Stockton, California.
The weekend will begin on Friday evening, June 3, 2016 – at the University Plaza Waterfront Hotel in Stockton, the host hotel for our event.
There in the cool of the delta breeze, we’ll have an informal social hour and reception, including appetizers and a light supper with a slider station and no-host bar. The reception will honor the fifteen past presidents of the California Cornish Cousins.
Saturday Sessions on Campus
On Saturday morning you can ride the hotel shuttle (or drive if you prefer) to the University of the Pacific campus, where we’ll gathering in historic Raymond Great Hall for a presentation by university archivist Michael Wurtz, a panel discussion of past presidents talking about the future, and the briefest of annual meetings.
We’ll share lunch on campus, where Café Bon Appetit, the university’s catering services, are proud of their pasties, the equal of any baked in the homeland between the Tamar and Land’s End.
After lunch two recent graduates, who are both Cornish descendants and Pacific Tigers, will be leading us on a campus tour. The afternoon will include a break, with a chance to return to the hotel, lounge by the pool, chat in the bar, or nap in the room.
The evening begins with a social hour at 6:00 pm back at Raymond
The Grass Valley Male Voice Choir is traveling to Stockton to help celebrate our 25th Anniversary.
