September 20, 2021 UPDATE from Wayne regarding the October 1-3 Reunion.
Well, here we are, 10 days before the CFHS Class of 1968 71-in-21 Birthday Party. We've received replies from many of you (thank you) and it's time to count heads so that we can finalize plans.
If you're in the "Wouldn't miss it" category, we'll see you there. We're asking that the "Probably" group (you know who you are!) let us know if you're going to attend. You "Won't Make It" folks still have time to change your minds. Sending an email to this address will suffice.
The schedule of events is as follows:
FRIDAY, October 1
3:00 - 11:00 Meet & greet at Beau's On The River, inside the Sheraton at Front & Broad. Their Happy Hour is from 3 to 6.
SATURDAY, October 2
10:00 am to 11:00 am Those who are interested will meet in the parking lot at Bolich. We've been granted access to the building for an hour, so that we can wander the halls and remember the good times. (This might be the last opportunity for many of us. There are plans to build an entire campus (grade school, middle school, high school) on the site of Bolich and Newberry. Newberry closed for good during the summer.
Noon Meet in the lodge at Lions Park (corner of 6th Street & Silver Lake Avenue) for more fun. We'll have a sock hop (remember those?) at one end of the lodge. There are no prizes for the best dancers, but it's all for fun. We promise there won't be a Twist Contest. At the very least, there will be plenty of tunes from the sixties for you enjoy even if you don't want to participate.
The afternoon will have an open mic night, so bring your best stories and remembrances with you and don't be shy.
1:00 Pizza from Laconi's will be served. There will be water, pop and coffee for refreshment - the City of CF does not allow alcohol in any of its parks.
3:00 We'll sing Happy Birthday to all of us and have cake and ice cream.
5:00 It's dinner time. We'll have a list of eateries and saloons for those who want to call it a day. You're welcome to stay. Having a dinner delivered is an option, if you wish. We have the facility until 11:00, but we'll start cleanup no later than 10:00.
10:00 - 11:00 Cleanup time. We'd be happy to accept volunteers to help.
SUNDAY, October 3
10:00 - ???? Brunch at the Sheraton. This was a big hit at the last reunion, so we'll do it again.
Lastly, we'll say our goodbyes and hope to see you all at the next full-blown class reunion.
If you've filled out the questionnaire, you don't have to do it again. If you haven't, please do, and send it in as soon as possible. We won't turn anybody away, but it would be nice to have an accurate headcount for ordering food and tableware. Here is the link to the questionnaire.
