50th Anniversary

Celebrating 50 Years of GMVS

On the weekend of June 9-11, 2023 over 400 GMVS alumni, family members and friends traveled from near and far to celebrate 50 years of GMVS. For those who were able to attend, the weekend provided an opportunity to reconnect, reminisce, and remember the importance of GMVS and the life-changing experience it provides. Thank you to all of you who were able to celebrate with us!

A Note From Jane Hobart to the Community

Dear GMVS people, all ages, all connections —

I can’t even begin to express how much it meant to me to see you all during the 50th celebration. I received so many hugs, so many kind words to me and especially about Al, which were both emotionally challenging and heartwarming.

Apologies that I was so overwhelmed by your kind response Saturday night I couldn’t thank you then! I’m certainly thanking you now. You made what could have been a very difficult time a wonderful and healing time.

I would also like to take this opportunity to offer a public “thank you” to our daughters Alison and Jessica for sharing their parents—with good grace even when it was tough— with about a thousand of you, our “GMVS children.”

Al would have loved this remarkable weekend—and he would have been much better than I was at recognizing in your grown-up faces the kids you were when we last saw you. He would have been so proud of the upstanding, outstanding citizens you’ve become, doing all sorts of things to make our creaky old world a better place.

Thank you for attending, for your kindness to me, and for just being the amazing people you have become.

With love,

Jane Hobart
