COVID-19 Advisory

We continue to plan for the 90th Anniversary Reunion Weekend, May 29-31. However, it is difficult to predict what the impact of COVID-19 will be at that time. We are moving forward with Reunion plans, but know that the situation is fluid and may change quickly. We meet daily to discuss developments to help us make sound, intentional decisions. We hope that you will make plans to attend, however we encourage you to consider travel insurance when booking flights and making reservations.

If you have any questions, please contact Jesse Fortney at jfortney@fvs.edu or Margie Sherer at msherer@fvs.edu.
