We’re getting close ….. September 15th is the deadline for email your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Response has been great but a few are still sitting on the fence (why? I don’t know because sitting on a fence isn’t very comfortable) and others we simply haven’t been able to get in touch with. Call someone from ’73 and get them involved.
Bribe them if necessary, tell them we’re giving away a car or a trip to Cancun. We won’t but that will be your problem that you can blame on us once they arrive at Renault Winery on 29 September from 2-5 p.m.
Remember it’s $50 per person at the door. Bring cold hard cash, leave your credit cards at home unless you feel the need to visit the Renault gift shop to get your hosts a reunion gift. I will happily accept it but you will still owe me 50 bucks.
We will gladly hand over all the proceeds, after paying the Renault folks for their services, to the American Cancer Society. Maybe we should do this thing every year and just call it the “Billy Fund”. I think he’d approve.
The classmates formerly known as Nancy Klinger and Carol Siewert have taken to doing the ‘day of’ details that I’m terrible with. This is good because I have trouble getting in touch with my feminine side. Be advised they have been sternly advised about the No Wrist Corsage rule and are keeping it simple. Yes, you will be required to wear a name tag since you are likely not nearly as good looking as you were in high school.
CHARLIE GUENTHER has graciously stepped up and offered to host the AFTER PARTY for the Unofficial No Fuss No Muss 40 Year OHA/AHS REUNION ….. at a place of his choosing. Details to be made available at the reunion; (likely somewhere close-by, regrettably not Bossick’s Cove (sp?).
He has begun the detailed process of evaluating the party location options by taking into account sufficient ‘dive-iness’ quotient, temp and quality of beer selections, absence of perky wait staff and any evidence of table cloths, sanitary but not sterile, satisfactory locks on the restroom doors, …. You know stuff like that. Charlie is going the extra mile because ….. Well, he’s Charlie and ….. he cares.
Probably an update or two yet to go as I am old and forget things.
Cheers, my friends – can’t wait to see you again.
