We will be making an effort to contact as many alumni as possible, but please help us spread the word! Further, please ensure your information in the MIT Alumni Association database is up to date and lists you as a member of the MIT Radio Society. Encourage your fellow alumni to do the same!

Anniversary Gala Brunch Information
The brunch will be the premier event in our celebration. The Whitehead Institute (located next to Stata Center) has graciously invited us to hold our celebration at their facility. Our keynote speaker will be James Ahlgren ’55 (W4RX) who promises to entertain with stories about the club and ham radio in general. We will also be inviting others to say a few words if they desire.
We have been working closely with the caterer to assemble an exceptional menu for the event – a far cry from the “food” usually served at our meetings! Starters such as prosciutto-wrapped melon, and mango bruschetta will be followed by salmon and torte milanese as the mains. The food will be memorable as will the table centerpieces!
Due to the logistics behind catering the brunch, we ask that all parties RSVP for the brunch no later than May 15. The ticket cost is $20 for alumni, faculty, and staff and $10 for current students. Attendees may also bring a guest to this event but a second ticket must be purchased. Ticket purchases can be completed online through Alumni Association website. Tickets will not be sold at the door. If you have any problems registering, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 (617) 401-8175

If you have questions or suggestions, want to tell us a story, or want to help plan the events or round up alumni, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com. Even sending us a few sentences of your fondest club memories would be greatly appreciated.
If you would care to make a financial contribution to the club, we now have a formal donation channel through the Giving to MIT website. More information can be found here. Unless we are instructed otherwise, all donations will be acknowledged at the Gala Brunch and through the W1MX website.
