NEW DATE - SAME PLACE!

Saturday March 20, 2021

 

We are pleased to announce we have scheduled a new date for our 50th Reunion - Saturday March 20, 2021.

After hearing from many of you and looking at the possibility that North Carolina will not yet be permitting groups our size to meet any time soon, we decided the August 9, 2020 date may not work.  

We moved to Spring of 2021 to ensure everyone who wishes to attend the Reunion will be able to travel and feel safe in doing so.  Mark your calendars today for Saturday March 20, 2021.

In the meantime continue to find and invite those "missing" classmates that still remain on our list.  Also continue to encourage all those that have registered on this site to purchase tickets and attend the Reunion.

Everybody stay safe and check back here from time to time - at least we will rotate the music.  

Gregg Stahl & Harry Stegall

Reunion Tickets

Reunion tickets are now available! 

The tickets are $28 per person and include cocktail hour, small plate dinner and dessert.  There will be a cash bar following the cocktail hour.

Thanks to the generosity of 22 of our classmates, we have the funds for the costs of the reunion incidentials; room rental and setup, the website, and other miscellanous charges.  This allowed Reunion tickets to be lower priced and only reflect the cost of the catered food. 

You can only purchase tickets through the website and it must be with a credit card. The last date to purchase tickets will be Sunday March 29, 2020. No tickets will be available at the door.

The link to purchase tickets is in the top left corner of the website: 50th Class Reunion Tickets.  Click on the link and follow the directions to purchase your ticket.  We will check you in at the door the night of the Reunion.  You will have the opportunity to also purchase a ticket for your guest while you are purchasing your ticket.  Please provide the guest's name as the website will generate name tags for both of you.  

Purchase you tickets now and start spreading the word to all of our classmates!
