Your 2018 Whittier High School 55th Class Reunion -- Save the Dates

Dear Classmates,
Yes, our 50th reunion was great.  If you don't believe me go to our website ( and take a look at over 75 pictures of your classmates having fun.  But everything we do can be improved.
February 2018 Our Next Reunion
Highlights of your WHS Class of 1963 55th reunion  are:
1.  Each of the three events is a la carte.  You pay only for what you attend
2.  Two of the three events are currently estimated to be $10 to $20
3.  We are scheduling our reunion on February  23rd, 24th, and 25th to March 1st, 2018.  This will give those classmates who are coming from colder climates a chance to enjoy the warmer Southern California weather.
4. Fun starts on Friday night with a pizza party at a pizza restaurant in or near Whittier.  Cost estimate is $10 per person and all the pizza you can eat.  Drinks are extra.
5. Saturday afternoon we will have a potluck at Palm Park in the "Palm Room with kitchenette and patio."  This will run from about 1 PM to 5 PM and estimated cost is $20 per person which will cover the rental and insurance of the room, kitchen and patio, plus utensils and plates and incidentals.  Those classmates, like me, who are coming from out of town will just get some takeout food from a local restaurant.  We will supply serving spoons for those take out dishes. 
6. Sunday we leave on a 4-day Carnival cruise from Long Beach going to Catalina, Ensenada and back to Long Beach on Thursday.
I will send out more info on the cruise since there are many options as to rooms and other items that I will try to explain in another email and a post on our class Facebook web page.
Just save the dates that you want: Friday February 23;  Saturday February 24; Sunday to Thursday, February 25 to March 1, 2018.
As always please let me know your questions and concerns.  I do enjoy communicating with my classmates.

PS  If you feel the need to talk with me, it might be easier if you could give me some times that I could call you since I am often on the tennis court or otherwise not available.
