Show me the money
I thank those of you that have already paid ($100 per person for all events.) Thus far we have received payments for 65 people. That means we are over half way home. If you are coming, go ahead and send your money so we can get an accurate head count. If you can only attend one of the events just send $50 per person and tell us which event you plan to attend. If you aren’t going to be able to attend, please also let us know that. I thank those of you that have already told us. We will miss you and may talk about you!
Where to stay
Some of you have asked about hotel recommendations convenient to all of the events. I have checked out several of the East Memphis hotels along I-240. The hotel closest to all of our events would be the Hampton Inn – Walnut Grove/Baptist East. It is just off Walnut Grove just east of the Baptist Hospital. (I-240 exit 13) We have been offered a rate of $79 single or double plus tax. (Their regular rate is $114.) This includes a full breakfast each morning. Call your reservation into 901-747-3700 and tell them you want one of the rooms held for the East High Class of 1961 Reunion. If you plan to use this hotel please let me know so I can try and get them to set aside and hold enough rooms for us.
Send me some pictures
The disc jockey, Alex Ward, doing our music Saturday night has a video presentation of familiar scenes of Memphis in the 50’s & 60’s. He will be happy to customize it for our class, if we can provide him with pictures of ourselves while we were in school and out. The simplest way to do this will be to scan the pictures and e-mail them to me. You probably won’t even have to remove the pictures from an album. If you can’t do this, ask your kids or grand kids. Somebody close by will surely be able to do this. FedEx Kinkos can do it for you. If all else fails, send me the photos by US Mail and I will scan them and try to return them to you. Be sure to have your name and address on the back of each picture you send.
Please fill out the attached “Who’s Where” form and return it to me. Even if you are not planning to attend the reunion, your classmates would like to know where you are and a little about what you have done over the last 50 years. If we have enough money in our pot we will put together a printed booklet of these sheets. You should be able to save this document and fill it out on your computer and then e-mail it back to me. Otherwise print it out and fill it out and snail mail it to me. (We plan to put your picture from the annual in the upper right corner of this form.) Or write us a letter. We will try and use whatever you send us.
