40th poll
Posted Sunday, October 13, 2013 11:52 AM

Hey all!


I've heard that Maryanne is no longer interested in putting together a 40th reunion, sooooo I have an idea.  There will be a house party in Flintridge on Sat., May 31.  It is open to all alumni classes from LCHS.  The party is a clebration of the 50 anninversary of LCHS.  What if our class does a Happy Hour on Fri., May 30, and then we all go to the house party?  That would make it MUCH easier to plan, and we could see LOTS more people.  We could also do a Sat. family day at a park.......or Sunday.


I will find out the cost of the Flintridge gathering as soon as the planners know what it will be.


Let me know your thoughts!

Hello Karen: thanks for initiating this topic. I haven't yet attended any 1974 Class reunion but perhaps our 40th is the impetus. I like the idea of a cocktail party one eve and then join the general 50th anniversary party the next day in a casual setting. I will say that Steve and I attended a friend's 40th reunion (San Rafael High in Marin) this spring and it was a successful combination of the 1970's era classes mixed together. The party was held at Terrapin Restaurant in San Rafael. For my fellow DeadHeads, this is Phil Lesh's place. The star headliner that evening was....Pablo Cruise...who remembers this group? I suggest we keep things simple for the event organizers.

Best wishes to everyone! Susan in Sacramento who needs to update her profile

Hi Karen!


Thanks for organizing this (again) and for your suggestions. Here's my response:

1) Yes to informal gathering Friday evening - perhaps the same hotel bar where we've met in the past

2) Yes to Saturday May 31 party - hope other class years around '74 show up too

3) Yes to Sunday informal picnic - Oak Grove Park?


All the best to you and everyone else too!

Hi Karen and crowd - what a wonderful suggestion, Karen, and thank you so much for stepping up to propose the events for our class. I think I'm like a lot of us - willing/wanting to attend but not so much the organizing part. Call it lazy, or letting 'someone' else do the heavy lifting.

I think the proposed Friday happy hour, Saturday house party for the official 50th reunion and then the Sunday family picnic gives EVERYONE something they can enjoy and take part in. As you said the cost will be relatively small, but I think the payback to all of us can be huge.

Again, thank you for keeping our reunion fires burning! Christine Rogers Locksy

Hi all.  I will be attending the 40 year reunion at the Pasadena Hilton, which has worked well for our group in the past.  The all school celebration in Flintridge will be a great time too.

Karen, thank you so much for the getting the information out there.  If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.  I can put an article in the Valley Sun, Outlook, at the High School?  Lots of alums from our class still live in LC.

Looking forward to it!  The three optional gatherings Friday night to Sunday sound good. Let me know what I can do to help.
