Class News

If you didn't get information in the mail regarding the 50th Class Reunion, here is the same information.

For the unaware, the Aberdeen Museum of History burned on Saturday, June 9th. Some things are able to be salvaged, but it will not be usable for the reunion.

The reunion committee met today, and the only suitable location that is available is the Hoquiam Elks (624 K Street). All other venues are either booked or unsuitable. The date and time remain the same, only the location has changed. Those who have already sent in your registration will get a notice in the mail. The class picture will be taken at 8:15, so don't be late.

NOTE: The Friday night event at the 40 et 8 starts at 6 p.m. - not 7 as listed on the registration form.

We did have the 10-year reunion in Hoquiam, but if you still hate the Grizzlies after all these years, maybe we'll have a Grizzly statue or Johnny Hoquiam there for you to debase.

The options for places to stay in Aberdeen & Hoquiam are few as most motels have become drug houses.

Another option available is the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites in Hoquiam, 910 Simpson Avenue, 360-532-8161. It's across the street from Swanson's and the Simpson Avenue Grill, plus it's within walking distance of the Elks...only 3 blocks!!

If you call direct, mention 1968 Bobcats Reunion for discounted rates for our class, $89 for a single queen, $99 for double queen and $99 for a king. Continental breakfast served until 9:00 a.m., microwave and mini fridge in each room.

Steve Wyckoff has designed a T-shirt for our 50-year reunion. On the back are the names of all class members. (Spelling errors, omissions, etc. will be corrected.) Orders must be placed no later than August 4th, and the shirts can be picked up at the reunion. Corrections will be made to misspellings, omissions, etc. Colors and options are available on the order page.
