HLHS Class of 1969 50th Reunion

Hard to believe, but it has been 50 years since we graduated!

Our plans are low key, with plenty of time to laugh, catch up and remember. No programming, no fancy stuff. Basically, we will meet at Bucillis Pizza Friday night, maybe golf Saturday morning, maybe take a road trip. attend the Class of 60s Reunion and have brunch on Sunday.

Here is a PDF of all the details!

Saturday, August 9 – 11am until 2pm – Road Trip and Picnic OR Golf Outing

ROAD TRIP: Meet at Kmart parking lot where we will consolidate vehicles and travel in a caravan to Reedsburg Dam for a Picnic (bring you own food and beverages.) The caravan will travel around the lake stopping at the Music Box site, Five Corners, Bischoff’s Farm, and the old High School and track. (Let’s do a walk around the track for old times!)

Email from Suzette:
Hello, Everyone,

We are going to be at the Elks Club for our Friday dinner.  The Beachfront Hotel is next door.  Their phone is 989-202-4700. Their new rooms are updated at  new flats screens, beds, etc.

Our dinner will be catered.  I was thinking Prime rib and maybe sea bass or salmon?  Let me know, please, before I meet with our caterer to discuss a menu.  I will soon be twisting Sharon’s arm to help with details.

See you in the summer!
