As you know our esteemed leader and reunion king, Jeff Thomas, has decided to take a well-deserved retirement from planning and organizing our class reunions. The reunions have been so much fun we certainly don’t want to stop having them. Therefore I, Harold Muse, have volunteered to organize a future casual reunion. Anyone that would like to volunteer in my place is welcome to do so and I will be happy to support them 110%.
In talking to a number of classmates the general consensus is that we do not want to wait until a 55th reunion. My thoughts are that we would have a reunion in 2020 sometime in the fall. This would put us about mid-way between the 50th and any potential 55threunion. The second thought is that we would try to do a no charge/low charge one evening event similar to what we did last time at Ed’s Tavern. Maybe have some group appetizers but people could order whatever they want to drink and eat so each classmate could control their own expenditures.
The first step is to organize a committee to help with the planning. You have helped in the past and I hope you would be willing to do so again. I am open to any and all ideas but my thought is to make this event as simple and easy for the committee as possible. We would need to locate people which is always a problem but we do have the list Libbie compiled for the 50th so hopefully that will allow us to contact most people.
Please let me know if you would be willing to work on the committee in any capacity. I know some of you are not close by (David McLaughlin especially) but we still could use your help in some fashion. Feel free to “reply to all”. However, if you are willing to help but would like to avoid a particular task please email me privately.
Retired? So what are you doing? Sailing off into the sunset, moving closer to the kids or grandchildren, starting a new career, living the dream...Share your pictures and stories.
