50th Reunion Spring Update



According to the Internet it is about 160 days until our weekend of celebration!

We have broken through 200 classmates registered for more information.  We are getting pretty close to that 25% goal.   Woo Hoo!!!

A subset of the working committee met out at Reserve22 in early April, discussed numerous aspects of the event with our contact there, tasted a number of different appetizers, and are getting pretty close to having most of the details ironed out.  We are waiting for final confirmation from Reserve22 on food pricing and hope to be ready to price and sell tickets on or about July 1st, maybe a little earlier.

We continue to seek sponsors and contributions and have raised about $1,000 so far to defray the cost of ticket prices.  We have about 8 weeks to wrap up this activity and you can participate two different ways.  We know we sound like a broken record but if you compare us to the class of 1972, we aren’t even in the same league when it comes to fund raising and as we have shared before, anything we don’t use to subsidize the event will be contributed to the Holiday Classic Tournament.

There is a dedicated section in the Panther Pawprints for you to share memorials, remembrances, thank specific individuals, or what ever you would like.  Please visit: https://pw7350.com/donations-tributes/ to contribute.  It’s easy, fast and for a good cause.

We are also seeking sponsors for the event from the community.  For more information visit: https://pw7350.com/so-you-want-to-be-a-sponsor-great-heres-how/

We are still looking for your “treasures” to be included in our Pather Pawprints memory book.  Guy is seeking any memorabilia you can find and are willing to share.  Feel free to contact him at pwyearbook@pw7350.com.  

Pat Duprey has taken on the challenging task of finding our Fallen Panthers.  If you have a contribution, please go to Online Community at our website and share (note you must be registered to use).

We also encourage you to book your room when you are ready.  The hotel is about a mile from the event venue and as we have said before, the price is very attractive compared to similar class hotels in the area and once we reach enough room nights they will provide a shuttle.  Visit https://pw7350.com/book-your-room-now/  for instructions on how to book your room.

Thanks for your patience as we sort out all the details and get things finalized.
