Hello Cordova class of 1975 , Life's great, nice and sunny here today but we need rain. Updated on 2/16/2020
It’s official , our 45 year class reunion is set for October 3rd, 2020 at the remodeled Rancho Cordova Elks Lodge at 11440 Elks Circle. We're still trying to come up with a theme name for the reunion. Do you have one? Drop us a line or post it on the Cordova Class of 1975 Facebook page. Some of the one's we have came up with are: "You're Still The Same", "Class of '75- No Coronavirus here!, "Still Crazy After All These Beers" or "We Are '75!" or "Take No Jive, We're Still Alive!" A friend of mine realy liked the one from the 35th reunion "What Happens In Rancho, Stays in Rancho or Back from the Future (40TH) but we would like something fresh, even though no one will remember we already used those. We look forward to seeing everyone there and you will too!! It's a fun and casual night.
We had a great meeting last weekend at Tom's house going over the details for the event. Tickets for the event will go on sale in May with an earlybird discount. I know it's early but we need the financial commitment from everyone to be able to put on the event. The event will probably start around 5pm with dinner at 6:30 pm.
One of the thing's we talked about at the meeting was how to contact people and let them know about the reunion (It's been 45 years, where is everyone?). Personal calls and mailing's are impossible and it's 2020. What will work best is if everyone who knows about the reunion can pass the information on to their friends and they can tell their friends and..... (it beomes a virus! OMG!!) about it and the class website and the Facebook page; you'll have to explain what a website is and what the internet is and encourage them to attend and help guide them through the ticket buying process. Your kids and grandkids can help.
Hello and thanks to all of the classmates who have recently signed up. Class Mascot Ricky.
45 Year Reunion, We Need Your Help! "Please Help Donate To The Fund"
Tom Pollock has volunteered to lead and form a committee to put on the 2020 45 year reunion. If you would like to help, send Tom a message. He just moved back to Sacramento and said he wanted to help with the 45 year reunion and would take the lead and has taken charge and got this event going. Thanks Tom for stepping up and bringing the time and energy to getting the ball rolling and getting this event together. Good Job! Tom has jumped right into action and has organized a group of classmates, picked a date and reserved a venue where we can have the reunion party. So save the date and mark it on your calendars. The 2020 "45 year" reunion will be on October 3rd, 2020 at the Rancho Cordova Elks Lodge @ 11440 Elks Circle.!!! We've had the 35th and 40th year reunions there and they have done some really nice upgrades and remodeling to the hall and it looks really nice now. The Elks Lodge works really well for our class. It's in Rancho Cordova, it's affordable and they can do all of the production for us. Updated on 8/25/2019.
Ciao, until next time, Ricky Slama now the official Class of 1975 mascot.
