I would love a chance to contribute to this effort. 

To me, nothing embodies the unique beauty and value of this program better than 
performances.

But considering the magnitude of the anniversary (and what it means in regard 
to changed lives), it might be
fun to have time to think about other ways to mark the anniversary during a 
reunion week.

For example, without setting sail for producing an encyclopedia, is there some 
kind of print piece that could
celebrate/memorialize what the last 50 years have meant, and thank Doc for 
putting it all in motion?

Something could be done online as well/instead. 

If everyone from the last 50 years who might want to come stay in the country 
can’t be accommodated (or
can’t make it for whatever reason), are there meaningful/satisfying ways they 
could contribute? 

I imagine a good number of these eloquent folks would be able to put something 
in writing about how 
Winedale changed them, for example. 

Something like that could get started well in advance, and could be posted 
online without creating an
excessive burden on Clayton (or others) or involving big expense. I could help 
with that, if desired.

Maybe there are other ways to engage alumni as well. 

The play’s the thing, but if everyone can’t be on stage, I think it would be 
fun to find ways to 
present as many voices from the past 50 years as possible. Aside from the 
inclusion factor, this 
could result in a worthy representation of just how much good Doc and the 
program have accomplished.

There might be “events” along the way as well, before or during the week, that 
could contribute to all this.
Thinking about that well in advance could help sort through the possibilities, 
what can realistically be executed,
etc.

Some thoughts, as requested.

Love to all,
Carl
