The 50th Class Reunion, Quincy High School Graduating Class of 1963, will be held Saturday, September 14th, 2013 in Quincy. This is the same day as the Quincy Farmer Consumers Awareness Day Celebration. Although, this is 6 months from now, there will be many people coming to Quincy and other class reunions thus; we need to start finalizing some of our plans. At this time we are in need of feedback from all of you! We need this information as soon as possible to continue our planning and please, no later than April 1st.
1. At this time, are you planning to attend?
2. How many in your party i.e., spouse, partner, friend?
3. Are you going to need lodging? (We are trying to get some group rate quotes)
4. Do you wish to also meet for breakfast Sunday AM?
5. Would you like us to have some sort of entry in the Saturday Morning parade?
(my sis' class had a flat bed truck that several of them just stood on and waved to
the 1000's of people lining the streets...she told me it was fun) :)
Now, the difficult part; our late Saturday aft/eve gathering. In the past we have experienced different "formats" i.e., sit down dinners, pizza at the former A & W Root Beer stand :) George Community Center years ago...etc., etc. I believe a "sit down dinner" is almost impossible unless we opt to travel to Wenatchee. There is a possibility in that Quincy has a community center where we could all gather and have it "catered"! We are looking into the costs.
Here is an idea! It would be fun to do a BBQ in someone's backyard. My sis' class has used a classmates' backyard and said it was the most fun of all the reunions they have experienced. What do you think? Is there someone in our class with a big backyard? The local community Park is another option.
Besides our own events, here are some of the other day's events; Grand Parade, Farm to Market Fun Run, Live Entertainment, Cook-Offs, Arts and Crafts, Car Show!
I will schedule a committee meeting to make all the final decisions as soon as we have all your replies. At that point we will be able to provide more details of any costs involved.
ps A big thanks goes out to Ray Ruppert, Jerry Solein and Patty Stetner for their help in obtaining your information
