50th Reunion UPDATES

Notices From Class President:

August 10, 2009

Last meeting before the Reunion!

We completed our last meeting tonight before we get started on Friday. One thing changed ever so slightly; the dress code for Saturday is going to be a little bit dressy because the ladies said that it should be because you get dressed a little for a buffet and we got dressed up for the 40th even to the point of wearing jackets and ties. We made a deposit to the Heathers for 135 people for Friday and Saturday. Based on what I know now, we could have 150 people attend the Reunion. We

would just pay more money to the Heathers. Everything is set to go. See you Friday and e-mail or call if you need to.

August 1, 2009

Now we have 122 paid, because Dorothy (Jones) Herron sent her registration check ($59) to our Committee last night by courier. We have resolved matters concerning decorations (centerpieces), dress code is Friday night casual, Saturday night dressy casual. The PCHS T-Shirts (20.00 and 15.00) can be ordered from Ken E. Corr at 248-892-8327 and be ready for pickup at the Icebreaker. Kiki has developed 77 of the name tags. She would not let me keep mine in fear of me not having it for the Icebreaker; they are good. We will send special invitations to Mr. Hayner, Mr. Szabo, and Mr. Zittle today. Mr. McMillen and Mrs. Smith have both agreed to attend. Our next meeting is August 10, 2009 when we will give The Heathers a final count that we expect to be about 130. We'll take registrations until August 8, 2009 without being able to be in the Memory Book.

July 23, 2009

We had another great meeting tonight. We are inviting several teachers to come to our 50th including Art Teacher Mrs. Jean Smith and Mr. Donald McMillen. We have adopted an official T-Shirt (one with collar is $20; one without collar is $15). Both have the PCHS Logo and the one without the collar has our "Those Were The Days" theme. Both are short-sleeved.They will be available on Friday Night 8/14/2009 at The Heathers. I have bought both in the XL size; KiKi said the collared one is a little big on me. KiKi has gotten some surprises for us. They will bring back old memories. She is really going way out. We will have a photographer both nights and a D-Jay on Saturday Night. Both nights we will have a dance floor. Did I mention that we are up to 113 registered and expecting more. Jesse and Richard have gotten the WORD out. Jesse and Suzie and KiKi did a serious inspection of the The Heathers tonight and asked the right questions. Our next committee meeting will be Friday July 31, 2009 at 7pm.


July 17, 2009

One to go to get to 100. John Bandy brought his registration and check (no. 99) into my office this afternoon and we talked and talked and talked. If anyone wants to go to the Heathers early, call Ms Rachel Rattray (248-334-9770) and let her know that you are with PCHS' 50th and she will get you into the Club. By the way, put it out that there is a no denim rule at the Club; I forgot to mention it.

July 15, 2009

Let's make the deadline 7/31/2009 because the Heathers only needs 4 days notice. The 15th is the deadline for the Marriott guaranteed $79.00 rate. Hey that's today, but I bet they will still give it. The 31st is to allow enough time to publish the Reunion Book. Later registratrants might not be in the book. If you are really pushing it, call Harrison directly at his office, 313.965.0555


July 11, 2009

Great meeting last night. Kiki has pictures of 1959 graduates that she will make name tags with. She needs a list of the graduates who have paid, along with their spouses. Can you provide her with such a list ASAP of the registered classmates so far because she needs time to make the name tags.

We are still trying to contact Mr. McMillin (Stan Walker). Programs for both nights are set. Entertainment for Saturday night is set. Table Center Pieces are set.We're still trying to decide on a camera person (Richard Moss).

June 28, 2009

We had a great meeting last Friday. We reviewed and approved the 8/14/2009 and 8/15/2009 programs that were so well done by KikI Sekles; we have tentatively decided on a DJ for both nights, i.e. 8/14/2009 and 8/15/2009; we have decided on special prizes and favors for the event; we have decided our theme is "Those Were The Days" thanks to Nancy Donaldson Scott; Richard Moss was going to attend a memorabilia sale of PCHS & PNHS "stuff" yesterday and see if he could pick up some items for us; Stan Walker was going to contact Mr. McMillen to invite him to the affair as our "special guest"; The Oakland Press' Diana Dillaber Murray could not attend the meeting because of a prior commitment; however, we will meet with her at The Heathers on Wednesday, 7/1/2009 at 2 PM - everyone is welcome to come. Our next meeting will be at The Heathers at 7 PM on Friday 7/10/2009. More info: we are up to 65 paid for the event: Leonard and Jane Munson were 63 & 64 and Richard Moss was 65. And, I have it on good authority that we will have over 100 registered before the end of July!

We had a good meeting last night (Friday, 5/22). Richard Moss joined the committee and brought a list of 531, 1958 & 1959 graduates.

The contract with the Heathers was signed about an hour ago. The Friday night (8/14/09) and Saturday (8/15/09) menus have been picked, thanks to Suzie Seibert and Geri Munson. I will send out some registration forms to some people that I know who have been waiting for them. Let's see who the first person will be to send in a registration. And let's publicize who registers so we can use that as advertisement for others.
