Getting closer to a time and place!!!

The reunion committee met tonight... and we are getting closer to hashing out the details of our upcoming reunion. We have narrowed the venue down to 2 places. Comparing apples and oranges is not an easy task... especially when the committee is so diverse. A few of us need to take a 'field trip' before a final decision can be made. HOPEFULLY the final decision will be announced in a few days.

What we CAN tell you is... we are looking at holding the reunion on October 6th... AND we are doing our best to keep the price under $65.00.

Make sure to follow this blog via email to get all the updated information sent directly to your inbox. It's simple to do... just look at the top right of the blog and click on 'FOLLOW BY EMAIL'.

Big RED???

Call me silly (or just very old) but I don't remember any one calling our teams BIG RED. Do you??? Weren't our school colors Blue and Red back in 1972? Or am I just feeble minded? When did it change to Red and White? Can any one answer??? And what happened to the letter "T" on the varsity letter??

The REUNION PLANNING COMMITTEE is still working out the last few details of our upcoming 40th reunion. Just a few more days and we will have the day and place set in stone.

Please remember to follow this blog for all your reunion information. Also... if you have a business or blog you want to promote... let me know and we will add it to the side bar.

O! T! H! S! Rah! Rah! Rah!

Reunion Committee meets!

Hi all! We just wanted you all to know the reunion committee met tonight (Tuesday) and do not quite have a firm date for the reunion. We batted around a few options... and now we have to check if the venue we are considering is available before we send out a SAVE THE DATE.

In the meantime... we are sending a shout out to all of you to SPEAK UP! This is YOUR reunion. What would make this reunion a huge hit for you??? Would you be interested in attending other get togethers during the weekend? A reunion dinner one night, a picnic the next day, meet at the beach? If held in the fall how about going to the homecoming football game? Send us your ideas and suggestions.

We are working hard to keep the price of this event 'attainable' for everyone. Under consideration is using a venue where we can provide our own bar and catering. To that end we are looking for anyone who might have 'connections', or would be willing to 'sponsor' a portion of the reunion. Do you know a caterer? Have a wine and/or beer supplier with great prices? Have you always wanted to buy balloons for decoration? How about kazoos... want to buy 100 and donate them? Don't be shy... now's the time to let us know.

Also... once we have a date we will look in to getting a block of rooms with discounted rates at local hotels. In addition... would any of you be willing to host a class member in a spare room? Let us know!!

Leave a comment below... or email us at
