55th Reunion?Saturday, October 1.
There has been queries about whether the Class of 61 will be having a 55th reunion. No one seems interested planning a full blown event as we have done in the past, but some discussions have suggested doing something simple. One idea is to pick a nice Embassy Suites hotel, or the like, near OC or Long Beach airport, and basically just having an open cocktail party on Saturday evening. No cost, other than your drinks and hotel room if staying.
Saturday, October 1st has been mentioned as a potential date, since the summer tourism will be over and the hotels should be very available on the weekend.
Also, for those who would like to extend the reunion, there is a four day cruise out of LA on Monday that could make the trip additiionally worthwhile.
If either or both of these options sound like fun, please send an email to with your current email address and phone number.
If there is enough positive feedback, further plans will be made.
The party is on!
Coach Willis and his wife have confirmed their attendance, so all of you get busy making plans and spreading the word. The event is October 1st at the Long Beach Airport Marriot. The hotel has reserved tables for us in their lounge from 6 PM until midnight. Meals and drinks are your choice and paid individually, attendance is free. Several folks have already responded that they will be checking in on Friday, so there will be some extended partying.
If you have any questions, please email me at the above address, or call me at 281-382-3608. Spread the word and lets have a fun weekend.
