ANNOUNCEMENTS

THREE MONTHS AND COUNTING

We’re now only 3 months away from the 50th Reunion Celebration of the Camelback High School Class of 1972, and excitement is continuing to build as more and more classmates sign up to attend!  The reunion will take place on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5. 2022 at the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort.  Friday, November 4 will feature "get-togethers" of the various elementary schools we attended.  The elementary school get-together invitations will be announced separately on the homepage of our class website. 

Following the grade school get-togethers, classmates and their guests who are registered to attend the reunion are invited to The Pharoah’s Hospitality Suite to enjoy snacks and refreshments, and to continue visiting and catching up.  Additional details concerning our reunion’s “main event” on Saturday, November 5 will be posted on the class website in the weeks to come. 

Important:  Please note that in order to attend any official reunion events (including the Pharoah’s Suite) you must be registered and credentialed for the reunion!  As explained in a previous announcement, your registration fee not only pays for your sit-down dinner on Saturday evening but helps us to cover all the other many expenses involved with our reunion.

Speaking of reunion expenses, we continue to generate them despite our best efforts to economize and keep costs down.  We ask that you please consider making a contribution over and above the price of attending the reunion (or, if you’ve already made a contribution, adding to it) to help cover expenses.  Thank you!

The We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort continues to tell us that all their hotel rooms are booked up for our reunion weekend.  That said, for those of you who really want to stay at We-Ko-Pa the reunion committee recommends periodically contacting the resort directly to see if there have been any cancellations.  We were informed last week a classmate and spouse recently did so and were able to make a reservation for the reunion weekend.  For those of you who prefer to stay at a different property, please see the previous announcement listing some other local options.

Finally, a high school reunion is truly an occasion where “the more the merrier!”  For this reason, if there is a classmate that you would like to see at the Reunion, and who is not currently registered, it is time to start “twisting arms” and encourage them to register.  We’ve noticed that some classmates will sit on the fence about attending until someone takes the time to invite them to attend.  Please be that “someone” who takes the time!  Of the 297 "Found Classmates" we currently have 89 Classmates registered to attend and are hopeful to get 125 to 150 (or roughly 1/2) to attend.  If you want to know whether a specific classmate is registered for the reunion, go to the class website under “Classmate Profiles” and select the various “Attending ……” levels and a list of those registered for that event will be provided.

We look forward to seeing "you" at the Reunion in November!

 

If you graduated from Loma Linda and attending the 50th Reunion, we should plan on meeting up separately either Friday or Saturday, perhaps by the pool area at the Resort. So let either me, Debbie Ortiz (Sherlock) or Susan Tree (Casillas) know on our profile page...see you there!

FOUR MONTHS AND COUNTING (Delayed)

This is a last-minute reminder that the extended “Early Bird” pricing will expire on July 15th. We hope all who want to take advantage of this discount have done, or will do, so by then.

The Hotel is sold out for the Reunion Weekend, but if you are still looking for accommodations at the We-Ko-Pa Resort, we encourage you to check back with them regularly for any possible cancelations or release of available rooms. We are waiting to hear back from the Hotel as to the possibility of a “Wait List” for rooms.

We would also ask that if any Classmate who has a room reservation at the We-Ko-Pa Resort and finds themselves unable to attend the Reunion, that they do not cancel their Room Reservation, as we have Classmates who would like to assume that Reservation. If you find yourself in that situation, please lets us know and we will work to get the Reservation reassigned.

At this time, we currently have 81 Classmates and 35 Guests registered for the CHS 50 Year Reunion. We are hoping to have over 100 Classmates in attendance for this Golden Anniversary Event. Please check the class website to see who will be attending the Reunion. You can access the list of attendees under Classmate Profiles on the home page of the website and click on the various Attending categories.
