CLASS OF 1959 ... 50TH REUNION ... SEPTEMBER 11-12, 2009
Plans have been finalized for our 50th reunion!

Dates: September 11th and 12th, 2009
Location: Doubletree--Lloyd Center, Portland
Ticket Price: $79 per person (Saturday night)/ $89 for both nights

The Doubletree is an established hotel with a fun location and upgraded rooms and banquet/ballroom facility. It is an easy location to the Portland Rail transportation that provides free service to West Side, "down town." The hotel will hold a block of rooms for out of town classmates. An announcement post card is being mailed by Classic Reunions today. Classic Reunions has been contracted by the committee to organize and mange the event for the class. The committee researched Classics reputation and it is very well staffed and organized. This e-mail is to alert you to keep an eye out for the post card.

Saturday night, the 12th is the main event, 6:00--11:00 pm, dress is casual. Friday night is optional: it will be a casual gathering from 4:00--8:00 pm at Eduardo's Cantina, a casual lounge/dining area at the Doubletree. For those staying in the hotel it is likely that many will meet for breakfast on Sunday morning the 13th, in the hotel or nearby locations.

Registration will be available "on line" or by mail starting the second week in April `09; you will receive in the mail your invitation packet around the same date. Mementos, such as a group photo and memory book, will be available for additional charge. The committee has worked diligently to get information to you as early as possible for your planning. We encourage you to attend with your life companions and enjoy this "once in a lifetime ocassion."

The committee wants this to be the best and warmest gathering ever for the class of `59. Lyman Rigby '59 will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. Any questions or input regarding the reunion can be forwarded to the committee at wilsongrad59@comcast.net.
