2016 North America Old Vandals Reunion

The long awaited North America Old Vandals reunion is finally here. This reunion will bring you back and take you forward as you share a weekend reconnecting, reminiscing and engaging with old and not-so-old vandals. There will be plenty to do. While plenty of fun is assured, we will also use the opportunity to plan the North America Branch of the Old Vandals Association and even elect officers to move the association to the next level. This is only the beginning; we plan to meet every year. Don't miss this very first reunion of its kind outside of Ghana...be part of this history in the making.
