I want to briefly summarize the Reunion Planning Party of the USCHS Class of ’68 back on Saturday August 17th. We met in the Party Room at Princess Lanes and there were 14 classmates and their spouses. Thanks to all who attended, especially those coming from California, Texas, Florida and other far away places, and thanks to those who volunteered to help.
The general consensus of the group is that we should have a reunion in 2023 with three days of festivities similar to 2018. In 2023, the Friday night party will be held at Prior’s Restaurant at Princess Lanes. It will be complimentary hosted by me and Emmett – there will be a no host bar. There will be free bowling for those who are willing and able. Saturday evening will be at a modestly priced venue (to be determined) with a buffet dinner, no host bar and no entertainment. The event will be casual and fun and the cost must be affordable. The venue will be in Upper St. Clair or close by. Sunday will feature a morning no-host brunch to be held at a restaurant in Upper St. Clair or Bethel Park.
The focus of the weekend will be the Saturday night festivities. Those in attendance on August 17th and others who submitted their comments via email stressed that the event on Saturday evening must be offered at a reasonable cost and it must be casual so as to attract as many classmates as possible.
The time of year will remain the same as most classmates tend to have greater flexibility in the late summer. Some classmates also visit family in the Pittsburgh area in August.
Tom Marshall has volunteered to locate our missing classmates and he has several persons from the Class of ’68 who are willing to assist him. If you are interested in helping Tom, please reach out to him via Facebook or email.
I will head up a small group of classmates willing to help select the Saturday night venue, choose the menu and decorate. If you are interested in helping me, please let me know by email.
If you have any comments or suggestions, please send them to me via email at email@example.com. Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone in 2023.
All best wishes,
