This year’s festivities will be dedicated to Marie May and the late Marilyn Steinriede, who founded PlayADay. The two had children who attended VCS.
The festivities will kick off with dinner and bingo Friday night in the St. Al cafeteria.
“We’ll have a few celebrity-type (bingo) callers, but it’s a surprise,” said Patty Mekus, VCS development and alumni affairs director.
Events will continue Saturday and will feature a barbecue cook-off, new this year. The top prize is $500.
