40 Year Reunion
PLANNING COMMITTEE UPATE (6-6-15)
Hello All – The last meeting of the reunion committee was held today, June 6, with ten people present. The countdown continues to June 19th. Everything seems to be on track for a GREAT time! Local businesses have been generous in responding to the committee’s request for gift certificates and merchandise to be given away to winning ticket holders in drawings to be held both nights. Each person in attendance will receive a ticket for the drawings at the registration table. Those classmates bringing an item (or photo) for the ‘Anything ‘70s’ display will receive an extra ticket for the drawings and entries in the ‘Anything ‘70s’ display will be voted upon both nights. We have a special gift certificate for both the Friday and Saturday night winners. PLEASE dig through your memorabilia and help make this a GREAT display of days gone by. Centerpieces, decorations, and music are under control. The menu at Moila is set and a special cake for the class has been ordered. We have a photographer booked for Friday night to take a class photo, individual grade school photos, and candid shots throughout the evening. As of now, our head count for Friday stands at 91 and 102 people have made reservations for Saturday night. Mr. Vaccaro and his wife will be with us on Friday night and Mrs. Ranner will be with us both nights. THANKS to the reunion planning committee for their countless hours spent in making this an event to remember. I’m SO looking forward to seeing you all there.
