Alumni arriving for the LA reunion had no problem identifying the venue—as they approached the home of Roubik Aftandilians '74, our gracious host, they saw first a TASIS valet parking sign, then a big banner depicting De Nobili...and a vintage VW van decorated with a TASIS crest! Roubik has always had great ideas and a lot of spirit, and he outdid himself this time: the main venue was an elegant transparent tent, complete with chandeliers. Mrs. Fleming would have loved it all!
A hundred guests were there to enjoy themselves in great company, and with delicious food and drinks that included Mrs. Fleming's signature cocktail, the Bourbon Old Fashioned. The guest list also included everyone's favorite sandwich maker and banker Angelo Piattini, who made the journey from Montagnola especially to join in the fun. As if this wasn't enough, the icing on the cake was the Emmy won by Michele Josue '97 just the evening before for her movie Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine. Brava Michele! Emmy was at the reunion too...Thank you to Michele for working on the reunion despite the unexpected distraction of the award ceremony, and especially to Roubik and his wife Karineh for generously opening their house for this memorable evening.
