    Class of 1970 Reunion Update

    WCCHS Class of 1970 
    50+1 Reunion 
    UPDATE:  June 30th, 2021
    Once again, the Reunion Committee found it necessary to cancel the Class of ’70 Reunion that was scheduled for Aug. 14, 2021. It was cancelled because at the time final decisions had to be made in late spring there was still too much uncertainty about Covid safety, vaccinations, hotel procedures for seating, eating, etc. It was a difficult decision to make.
    John Bowman volunteered to be on the committee and was very sorry to see the reunion cancelled. He enjoyed his only meeting that we held at the park. John wanted to continue the gatherings just for the purpose of socializing with anyone that was available so that we might be a stronger, more unified group as we look forward to another reunion.
    He suggested a “Bring your own Chair and Lunch Picnic” at Reed Park. The committee had met like this after Covid shut things down and we found it to be a very sociable affair! 
    So here we go…block out Thursday July 8th, 12 Noon, at the South End of Reed Park along National Street.
    Join John Bowman, members of the reunion committee, and anyone else that can make it, for a 50+1 Mini-Reunion Picnic. Please bring your partner (spouse, significant other, etc.) so we can reconnect with each other and catch up on the last 50 years!
    Bring a LAWN CHAIR and a LUNCH! This is an informal get together for anyone that can be there!!  As I write this, we have about 20-22 people planning to attend. RAIN DATE JULY 9TH
    Questions?? Message anyone on the committee...John Bowman, Shirley Matejovsky Havlik, Janet Zahn Perso, Rose Lakics Soto, Lori Schuett Rueffer, Eileen Koplin Benokin, Linda Ferguson Meyer, Jodi Bogolin Schoneck.
