Thursday, September 5, 2024

5:00 PM – 7:00 PM: NAPS Gathering – Latitude 38, Downtown Annapolis. All NAPSters and their guests are welcome.
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM: Class Gathering – Latitude 38. Join the NAPSters for a fun evening with the whole class.

We’ve planned a relaxed, affordable night at Latitude 38 on the city dock. Festivities start at 5:00 PM for NAPSters and their guests, with doors opening to the rest of the class at 6:30 PM. Check-in for the weekend will be available at this event.

Cost: $30 per person early registration. Early registration ends June 30th.

This includes a buffet featuring crab dip, chicken skewers, charcuterie, and more. Plus, two or more drink tickets donated by generous classmates.Generous donors have covered the additional $10 per person cost for the NAPSter event, so there’s no difference in the registration prices as a result.

Important Registration Note: Please select EITHER the NAPS event or the 1989 Class Reception.The events will merge at 6:30 PM, but we need to track attendance separately given the higher cost of the NAPS event.
