Class of ’62 – 55th Reunion
August 18-20, 2017, at the Embassy Suites in Ft. Lauderdale
Our 50th Reunion was a great success and we hope to make this one even better. In planning our 55th, our main goal was to make it affordable and fun for everyone. Many of us have friends from the class of 1963, so we have invited them to join us, as they say "the more the merrier.” The main event will be held on Saturday night. Dress will be casual and bring your dancing shoes. For all our classmates who are traveling back to Ft. Lauderdale, we have made Friday a day to either spend with relatives and old friends or attend our Friday night Social in our hospitality suite. If you are staying at the hotel, there is a free full breakfast every day and happy hour every evening. There are lots of excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. We will provide you with a list of classmates that will be attending the reunion. We are still in the planning stages so look for more information to follow.
The price for the weekend will be $125 per person. This will include the informal get together on Friday night in the hospitality suite and Saturday night in the grand ballroom at the hotel. A reception will be held before in the Atrium at 7:00 PM and then on to a spectacular dinner dance in the ballroom. We will have a cash bar set up and also nonalcoholic beverages. We have incredible entertainment lined up and of course our class photo to remember this special night. We also reserved a space for us at the hotel to share Sunday breakfast. The total price of the whole weekend includes all the costs for mailings, decorations, name tags, entertainment, the hospitality suite, etc. In keeping the cost low, we hope that more people will be able to attend.
