Evanston Twp High School
Class Of 1964
“Come Home to Evanston”
ETHS Class of 1964 50th Reunion
September 12th & 13th, 2014
We are hoping that you have interest in coming back to your roots in Evanston where you spent all or part of your childhood. Being with your grade school, junior high school and ETHS friends should be an important reason for you to come to our ETHS Class of 1964 50th Reunion. We are working hard to stage great events to make it worth your while to be with us.
For those of you who left Evanston many years ago, you will want to spend some time walking around downtown Evanston, the Northwestern University Campus and your old neighborhood. A lot has changed. We are working on creating a tour which we hope to offer during Reunion weekend to highlight some of these changes.
Here’s what we have planned thus far:
Friday Lunch: For those of you arriving early, there will be a “casual” lunch at Hackney’s on Lake for anyone craving a Hackney Burger and their “Original French Fried Onions”.
Friday Night: Our “Meet and Greet” will be at the Hilton Garden Inn in Evanston. This event will be casual with finger food and a cash bar.
Saturday Lunch at ETHS: Like the City of Evanston, much has changed since we walked the halls. A tour of the facilities will follow Lunch.
Saturday Night: We will meet at the beautiful Glen View Club where we will have a cocktail hour, a buffet dinner, music and dancing and maybe time to sing “Cheer Song” one more time.
Sunday Brunch: We are exploring having Brunch somewhere in Evanston but have not found many possibilities yet so we are unable to confirm whether this will take place.
