Have you put the 2020 End-of-Year Gathering on your calendar?
If you haven't done so, by all means do! We have a wonderful five days of activities taking shape for our VSA families, faculty and staff. And, this year's theme is sure to be a fun one. 'What is it?' you ask. It's The Roaring 20's!
When will The Roaring 20's take place? In 2020, of course! Put a 'Save the Date' for May 27-31, 2020 on your calendar. Join us at the Eden Resort in Lancaster, Pennsylvania for a time your family will relish for years to come, including experiences in Old City, Philadelphia; graduation; our annual dinner-dance; day trips and many other fantastic opportunities to connect with your teachers and fellow students.
Something very special happens when our students and teachers spend face-to-face time together, as happens every year at our famed EOYG. So, 'Save the Date' and check back in December for a calendar of events and registration information!
Whether you’ve been to VSA’s End of Year Gathering (our famed “EOYG”) in years past, or this is your first, you’ve got to do this! You’ve worked so hard throughout the school year, and now it’s time to relax and see your friends and teachers face to face.
As our students (and their parents) say year after year, it’s the best week of the year. Come to Lancaster this May and you’ll not regret it. Of course, you’ll want to see what we have planned before making the commitment, so take a look at what’s in store here:
EOYG is a wonderful opportunity to see fellow students and their families along with the familiar faces of your teachers, academic advisors, school administrators and the whole Veritas team. This annual event is an extended, carefully planned time of community, fellowship, laughter, conversation, and celebration of the accomplishments of our VSA students, graduates, and alumni. What’s not to love about an opportunity that will create lasting memories? We want to see you and yours for a roaring good time (a little hint of this year’s theme) at this year’s EOYG!

How does a visit to the new Museum of the American Revolution, a walking tour of select locations in Old City with Dr. Peter Lillback, lunch at one of the many choices at Reading Terminal Market, and meeting historic figures like John and Abigail Adams at Old City Tavern sound? Truly a special day. Transportation to and from Lancaster is included.

The Roaring 20’s are in full swing, giving birth to the rise of jazz music, flappers, and with the end of the war, a renewed feeling of hope and joviality. It’s the era of prohibition, and organized crime is at an all-time high. You’re invited to the Great Gatsby’s mansion for one of his infamous shindigs! Attendees beware: Some will suffer the big sleep!

Gatsby’s party will have nothing on this! Have a roaring good time at VSA’s much beloved Dinner/Dance in a beautiful new facility. Dress to the ‘20s theme and come prepared to enjoy delicious food, a live jazz band, dance lessons, and a late night DJ! Cut a rug with your peers, ‘rents (yes, some of them can dance), and teachers. Let’s see who can do the Charleston and jitterbug (best you start practicing now)!

Seniors, this is your moment! All VSA families and friends are invited to support our seniors as they walk down the aisle and turn their tassels. Graduation will be hosted at Lancaster Church of the Brethren, just a short drive from the Eden. We’re eager to honor our 2020 graduates for their hard work, and to commit them to Christ as they eagerly pursue their next chapter.
