Comments: Thank you for doing this! I was so happy to see so many "old friends" at the reunion and somewhat saddened that I have not been in touch with so many wonderful people for so many years. High school is such a vital part of who we are! Would like to keep in better touch from now on.....TY Bob
As most of you know, plans have been made for our 50th reunion on AUGUST 8, 2015 at the Jumping Brook Country Club. Information about the reunion can be obtained on the website created for our reunion by Yvonne Thornton and her committee. The website iswww.lbhs1965.com.
The only reason for this email notice is to let those who received the prior emails from me last fall, when we had tentatively booked Charleys Ocean Grill in North Long Branch for August 15, that that date is no longer being used, so cross it off your calendar’s if it’s on there.
Bob Guice will take care of posting this to the website so that any other classmembers who received my earlier emails can make sure they have the right date.
Re: CANCEL Saturday, August 15, 2015
Long Branch High School Class of 1965
I’m sorry to report that a new group has taken over our plans for our 50th reunion. They wanted a more elaborate affair, and have made other arrangements. As a consequence, we need to cancel our August 15, 201...
Make yourself heard here regarding reunion ambiance. Some have expressed an interest in no background distractions. That the fewer distractions the better for trying to make connections with long lost souls. Others have expressed an interest in very low volume background music, others have expressed an interest in live band music. Some want to dance others want to talk. Lets see if we can find some happy medium so we can all enjoy ourselves and have one great reunion!
The third meeting of the LBHS 50th Reunion Planning Committee started at 7 p.m. and ended at 8:06 p.m.
The initial discussion focused on the website with its new alphabetical navigation categories. There are scanned copies on the "Memory Lane" webpage, which include our Junior Prom invitation, Senior Prom program and our graduation Commencement Program. The committee will be seeking, from our classmates, other items of memorabilia to put on the website.
Bob recalled that about 60 classmates have registered to date and that we should wait until after the New Year before polling should commence regarding particulars about classmate socials on Friday and Sunday. Hopefully, there will be more classmates registered and that would be more representative of the class as we make these decisions.
Reunion activities, favors, awards, recognition etc.
After the venu is secured, menu settled, drinking preferences determined, the evenings entertainment is resolved we need to consider whether we should consider providing / acquiring any favors, souvenirs, momentos, keepsakes, tokens of rememberence, etc.
The day After: Breakfast / Brunch/ One More Get Together
A good way to wrap up this occassion is a day after Breakfast / Brunch / Picnic. There is the possibility of reserving the Picnic Tent for up to 50 people. We might be able to cater something, rent a larger tent etc.
Anything and all things can and should be considered.
It's getting late as far as reserving a venue is concerned and the first meeting of the Committee of Six will be Wednesday evening 11/05/2014 at 7:00 PM. Comments, concerns, preferences about where, when and what can be addressed here for consideration.
