The 45 year reunion set for October 3rd, 2020 at the Elks lodge has been CANCELLED. However; the plan B reunion is on. Because of the ongoing pandemic the class committee has decided to cancel the event. We want to give everyone the maximum amount of time possible to let everyone know. "We just don't know if things are going to be open?" If you purchased a ticket we will be mailing out refunds.
The Plan B Reunion is on: We're having a 45 Reunion Happy Hour get together on October 3rd, 2020 (same date) at Brookside Restaurant & Bar (brooksiderestaurantandbar.net) at 9819 Horn rd. Sacramento, Ca. 95827 at 5pm. It's where the old Mills Winery was, right across the street from the Rancho Library. Easy to find. A lot of trees there, nice shady area, a park like setting. We should be able to spread out more and abide by social distancing guidelines. It's a casual event , just like the reunions, stop by eat, snack and mingle and mix as you like. It should be a fun night. So spread the word to yours and our friends. And remember it's free, no coupon or signing up. I'll see if there's a way on the website to allow people to respond about going, a survey response that posts. It's nice and cool out this morning and I want to go for a ride before it get's to hot. Figuring out the website and posting information takes time that I'm happy to do for the benefit of the Class of 1975 and I have to post a message on another website, it take's time. Plus Ricky's a slow typer. There's also the class Facebook page where you can find updates. Tom is managing that.
If you have any questions contact one of the committee members. Tom Pollock (lead), Karen Teel (Treasure), Judy Gellein, Duane Fidel, Carmen Scheurer (Sherman), Jana Dodge (Pellegrini) and Ricky Slama (me). I'm hurrying to get this updated and the information out to everyone.
As we get ready for the 45 year reunion/get together, the reunion committee is looking ahead to planning the 50th reunion in 2025! "50's a big number, a beautiful number!"* Everyone stay well and plan for that.
Reunion and website donations
Ciao, until next time, Ricky Slama now the official Class of 1975 mascot.
