Same prices and deadlines apply to purchases by check as to online payments.

Refund policy is as follows:

Reservations are non-refundable: Since we are required to book our event based on the number of people who attend, we cannot provide refunds. If you cannot make the reunion after you have paid, you may find another class member who has not yet paid and transfer your reservation to her/him, but you will be responsible for collecting the money from that person. You can use the Yahoo Groups list to solicit members to switch with you.

Class of 1978 Sunday picnic details

After the Saturday dinner/dance event at Golden Gate Fields, we will meet again on Sunday, August 24, 2008.

The picnic will be held at Padre Picnic Area on South Park Drive in Tilden Park, starting at noon.

More specific details will be posted as we get closer, but the reunion committee will provide hot coals for BBQing (there’s a large grill in the picnic area), plate, cups, utinsles, and a few beverages. The event will mostly depend on pot luck, BYO everything. The picnic area has a large grass field adjacent, and everyone is invited to bring their family.

Attendance at the Saturday dinner/dance is not required for this event (although we hope everyone will come to both).

Be sure to include:

  • Current name
  • Name at graduation
  • Address
  • City, State, ZIP
  • Phone number
  • email
  • Your preference for us contacting you about reunion details: phone, email, or mail.

All information will be held in confidence, and used only by the Reunion Committee to contact you with reunion details. No information will be sold or traded.

(Great Reunions had problems dealing with the official BHS list for our class that does not contain middle initials, and thus decided to withdraw from the contract.)
