It would be helpful if, in addition to our invitation, you individually contact those you really want to visit with and make sure they commit to coming. We all need to reach out to those not on FACEBOOK or those we communicate with regularly and let them know how much it would mean to us to share the weekend with them.
We are aware some of our classmates are under financial stress to the point they would be deterred from attending. We will be providing an option, for those that are able, to contribute to a sponsorship fund. This option will be available on the registration form. Anyone in need of assistance should contact Chris Meshisnek Piraino, our treasurer, at email@example.com. Chris has agreed to handle all requests to maintain privacy.

The Class of ’63′s 50th Anniversary Reunion
August 9-11, 2013
Dear member of the Pullman High School Class of ‘63, amazingly, we are approaching the “50th” gathering of our class. How did we get here?!
Reunion Plans: After some preliminary discussion on www.myfamily.com, we have concluded the following:
Reunion communications: The easiest form of communication is email. An initial reunion email blast went out last summer, and was followed with another email. A postal notice was sent to those in the class that haven’t shared an email address with us, or are ignoring us. So, if you have an email address just drop John Harrington a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise just mail the postcard that was enclosed with the postal notice. [Be warned: Our plan is to be tenacious and keep hounding (or Grey-hounding) you until we know you got the message.]
Reunion Venues: We contacted the venues from our 40th reunion. Here’s a summary of research:
Hilltop Inn: – 80 new rooms are being added and a new restaurant being built. $16 for brunch is available and a group rate for 15 or more rooms @ $99.50 per night.
Thanks and Go Hounds!
Reunion Contact: John Harrington at email@example.com
