Classes of 74-79 August 23 Picnic now taking donations/reservations

Class of 1978 picnic at Padre

The multi-class reunion for’74-’79 is scheduled for Sunday August 23, 2009 and is now taking reservations/donations. We have Padre Picnic area in Tilden reserved, which includes a large field for sports (don’t forget your glove, nets), lovely areas for musical jams (ditto your instruments), picnic table seating for 120, a huge bar-b-que grill, plenty of parking, and even bathrooms with flush plumbing.

The picnic will be a potluck, so bring something for the grill and a dish to share.

We’re now taking reservations/donations to help cover the costs for the picnic. We’re asking $10 donation, which will help us cover the cost of renting the picnic area, buying ice and coals, plates and utensils, etc. If you can afford more, we welcome additional donations (click the down arrow below for other donation options).

  • $10: One person, a couple, or one family. $10 covers you all!
  • $20: Covers the basic donation, plus a bit more to help out.
  • $50: Covers the basic donation, plus quite a bit more to help out!

While “no one will be turned away at the door,” your donation will not only help us cover the costs, but will also help us to know how many are coming.

We’re all volunteering our time, and if we end up with any excess cash, we’ll donate it to a BHS/BUSD nonprofit agency (we may keep a bit for “seed money” for next year’s picnic–we plan to make this an annual event).

This picnic is being organized by several members of the BHS Class of 1978 reunion committee, and we’re open to others joining us. If you can help out, let us know along with your reservation. We’ve been meeting the last Sunday of the month, and our next meeting is scheduled for May 31st, 5:00, at Brennan’s (now 1/2 block from their old location, in the old train station at University and the train tracks).

Any golfers out there? If you’re interested in playing the Tilden course in the morning, leave a comment to this post and maybe we’ll get a couple foursomes. We’ll need someone to coordinate this if folks want to do it.

PS: We’re calling this the ’74-’79 picnic, but all alumni are invited who feel they’ll have a good time with us!
