IMPORTANT INFO

about our 50th Reunion 

The countdown clock is ticking and we now have just a few short days until we finally get together for our 50th Reunion.  If you have not yet made your reservation and still want to come, you have the following options:

   1.   Via Website - You can continue to make your reservations on the website by credit card (through the Paypal process).  Note that you do not need to have a Paypal account to use this feature.

   2.   By Check – Effective immediately, the following revised procedure applies:  Since Pat will be enroute to the Reunion from her Florida home, DO NOT send your written reservations and checks to the Wanzenberg address in Florida.  We will continue to accept checks; however, you must FIRST call either Pat Wanzenberg at 847-814-0942 or Judy Anderson at 312-933-5958 and they will explain how you can make your reservation.
