50th Reunion Reservations
(The time has come!)
Beat the August 1st event price increase - make your reservations now!
Many of you had previously visited the website’s “50th Reunion: Registration” page and advised us of your intent to participate in the Reunion on Friday and/or Saturday night. This preliminary information was very helpful in allowing the Reunion Committee to gauge interest and plan for event room sizes. Now, we’re ready to do this FOR REAL.
You should have recently received the Reunion “Calendar of Events” and “Reservation Form” in the mail. You have the option of making your reservation by filling out and returning (by mail) the hardcopy Reservation Form, or you can now go to the website’s “Reunion Reservations-NEW” page and make your reservation online, paying by credit card.
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...and your Reunion Committee has worked hard to stage great events to make this the best Reunion ever.
Following is a summary of the 50th Reunion “Calendar of Events”. A full detail, including pricing can be found at the “Reunion Reservations-NEW” page.
