Barb (Sheppard) Lang, Chair of Hiliners61 Coordinating Committee, reports:
"I have pretty well locked in the critical arrangements for our 2018 Mini-Reunion now scheduled for June 14-15-16, 2018. Our event will be during Valley City's annual Community Days and also the city's 125th Birthday Celebration.
"The President's House is booked, and I have blocks of rooms at the AmercInn and GrandStay motels in Valley City.
"AmericInn rates will be $127.49 for King rooms and $94.99 for double queens. I have 10 Kings and 5 Queens booked there (2018 rates are, of course, subject to possible but not expected change).
"GrandStay rates will be $129+tax per room and I've booked 10 Kings and 5 Queens at that motel too (GrandStay gave me a firm written rate).
"Have not made arrangements to rent a bus for a Farm Tour, but I don't think that's as critical as getting the motel rooms lined-up."
Barb also adds that our class has been invited to attend a gathering on Friday afternoon, June 15, 2018, at the Pavilion in Chautauqua Park. This is where all the various VCHS Class Reunions will be together. So far, invited classes are 61-62-63-64-65.
Mark your calendars, everyone, and watch this blog and Diane's newsletter for more information as it develops.
Hiliners61 Communication Team
Our 2010 reunion (50th Year celebration held during our 49th year since graduation) created a "Hiliners 61 Communication Team." This sub-committee continues to provide information and connections for you and all of our classmates. It's our gift to each of you and to ourselves as we enjoy our interactions with classmates as they contribute stories, ideas, news items and words of encouragement. We urge each of you to send us emails and/or place comments on the blog. - Barb (Sheppard) Lang, Diane (Sauer) Hughes, Larry Gauper and Ron Morsch - Email addresses for communication team members are available on the ABOUT THIS BLOG page.
