    Marhaba, BrAts!  In light of the current pandemic situation, ABI approached the hotel to discuss our options for a reunion.  We sent out a poll to all BrAts who attended any of the last four reunions.*  The results of the poll indicate the majority of our reunion-going BrAts feel uncertain and uncomfortable about attending a reunion this Memorial Day weekend and showed an overwhelming preference for moving the reunion to Labor Day weekend 2021.

    Reunion Scheduling Poll

    The hotel has agreed to move our event to Labor Day weekend and will be canceling your current room reservation and refunding your deposit within 5 to 7 business days. Once we have the link to our new group reservation page, we will notify you, so you can rebook your room reservations. 

    Registration for the reunion will open May 2021.

    We know how difficult this pandemic has been and how much everyone is looking forward to reuniting with childhood friends. Shukran for your feedback, patience and flexibility to help make this reunion happen!  You rock!

    *If you did not receive the poll but attended one or more of the past 4 reunions, we do not have your current email address.  Please update your profile information!

    Hi, Brats!

    We hope you and your families are healthy and well. While we stay home and stay safe, Aramco Brats will be here for you from the days in the desert to the days at home!

    The reunion next year is still being eagerly and excitedly planned behind the scenes, however, with the times of uncertainty, further details will be postponed.

    In the meantime, join us on our stories at Instagram and Facebook for updates and digital reunions!

    The brAts spoke and ABI listened.  Based on our survey results, brAts want their next reunion to be: “in a place that is hot and sunny”; “the resort needs a central gathering place with bars”; “we need one pool or pools close together”; “we want a resort that is not so spread out”.  BrAts you got it! 

    On Memorial Day weekend, 2021 ABI welcomes all Aramco Brats to Tucson, Arizona

    Tim “Tavy” Sandin and Jeff Civale are co-chairing the reunion committee supported by Bridget Halpin, Liz Germani, Marie Dunn, Caroline Masters, and Sandra Louchard.  Both Tavy and Jeff are local to Tucson. Let’s make reunion 2021 a great time to reconnect with our brAt family!

    Tim “Tavy” Sandin (DH 61)

    Tavy arrived in Dhahran at the age of 3 in 1949. As part of the class of DH 61, Tavy’s class was the first class to complete K-9th in Dhahran.  Tavy proudly played on the Arabian champion little league Steelers in 1955 and 1957. After graduating from New Mexico Military Institute in 1964, Tavy attended the University of Arizona. Besides being a brAt, Tavy worked for Aramco from 1976-1996 in 4 different communities, including Yanbu. Both of Tavy’s kids, Marc and Courtney, were born at the Dhahran hospital. Tavy has 3 grandchildren from Marc.  Courtney passed away in 2011 at age 23. Tavy has worked on two other Tucson reunion committees: 2001 and 2003. As a long time resident of Arizona, Tavy has lived in the Tucson and Green Valley area off and on for 45 years. Tavy has been married to his wife, Dee, for 17 years. He enjoys golfing and his gym time. 

    Jeff Civale (RT 85)

    Jeff Civale (RT 85) has lived in Tucson, AZ all his life minus the 10 years he spent with his family in Saudi Arabia (1978-1988).  After graduating from RT in 1985, Jeff attended The Orme School in Arizona. As an enthusiastic participant in many reunions, Jeff is excited to be part of the committee for Reunion 2021.  Besides being a long time Costco employee, Jeff loves traveling (especially to visit other brAts), cooking (his salsa verde is a must at every reunion), outdoor walking, entertaining and photographing life’s great moments!  Jeff works hard to stay in touch and connect with many brAts. As a long resident of Tucson, Jeff knows all the great spots of Tucson!

    Keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter - ABI will announce the hotel in early June 2020! Inshallah brAts!

    Marharba, Brats! Aramco Brats, Inc., began a new term, November 1, 2019. We are proud to present our board for the 2019-2021 term:

    Liz Germani​ (RT '84). President
    Sandra Kerr-Louchard​ (DH '84), Vice President
    Tom Littlejohn​ (DH '84), Treasurer
    Amber Perkins-Neal ​(DH '86), Secretary
    Bridget Halpin ​(DH 84), Reunion Oversight Director
    Paul Allen ​(DH '89), Director at Large (Nominations)
    Dawn Kolb ​(DH '92), Website Director
    Marie Littlejohn-Dunn ​(DH '77), Director at Large
    Caroline Homolka-Masters ​(RT '84), Publications Director
    Selma Zein ​(DH '06), Database Director

    Aramco Brats, Inc. welcomes 2 first-time board members:

    Selma Zein​ is joining the board as the Database Director. Born and raised in Saudi Arabia, Selma, DH 2006, lived in Saudi for 18 years.

    Considering Selma’s family are placed in all parts of the world, she loves to travel. Her favorite spots always include a sunny day. Her furry child, Sylvester (cat), and she are currently in pursuit of exciting new endeavors, and, as a part of her new adventure, she looks forward to being a part of ABI's Board.

    ABI also welcomes ​Bridget Halpin​ as the Reunion Oversight Director. Bridget is the youngest of five Halpin children who were all born and raised in Dhahran. She is a proud member of the class of DH'84.

    Like many Brats, Bridget has been bitten by the travel bug, and she and her husband, Damian, travel internationally as much as their work schedules will allow. Being a true Irish lass, Bridget says that she has never met a stranger thanks to her "gift of gab." When not golfing or traveling, she spoils her two terrier pups, Rory and Hailey.

    Bridget was an invaluable member of the Phoenix reunion committee serving as the Reunion Chair. As the Reunion Oversight Director for the new term, Bridget's goal is to continue the progress of refreshing activities by encouraging fun and new ideas.
