It’s time to start making some preliminary plans for our June event. Marilyn has advised us that tickets to the Muny are $40 per person. That is the group rate which we can only get if there are twenty or more attending. The buffet in the Pavilion before the performance is $21 per person and is open to all, even if not attending the performance. Thursday, June 19, is the date for which we are aiming. The Muny has begun taking reservations already, so we should try to finalize our plans for this event as soon as possible.
As far as the Cardinals game is concerned, we can get group tickets for 25 or more attending or a party room for 30 or more. I agree with Jim Shibig that a party room would be more desirable even if a bit more costly. We’re looking at Cards vs. Phillies either Friday, June 20 @ 7:15 PM or Saturday, June 21 @ 3:10 PM. I will get further information on pricing when we know how many are interested in attending.
We will certainly have some of the other events that have been considered, i.e., a “meet and greet” type gathering, a dinner, picnic in the park, picture on the school steps, mass and remembrance of our deceased classmates, etc. There will be something of interest for everyone. These can be planned a little later, but the Muny and the ballgame need to be reserved in the near future. Please let us know as soon as possible as to whether you plan on coming to the reunion and if so which of the two events described you are seriously considering attending.
Thanks for your feedback. Looking forward to seeing all of you in June!
