I know that Patty is looking for help for next year’s 50th reunion.   From experience, I can tell you that the more people involved, the easier it is, and we get to have more fun at the planning meetings.  The meetings are ALMOST as much fun as the reunions themselves.   So be sure to email Patty at so you can enjoy it all!

Just to let everyone know nothing is for sure for the 50 Anniversary Party except the Date.WE are still in the planning stage.Ideas are still  on the table.WHEN THE COMMITTEE PLANS are complete ill lt you all know. Im very busy after our move from our home,just thought we could get a start on setting the Date.

I believe that Jimmie Anne was able to reserve the Pelican Yacht Club for Saturday, June 8th.  We’ve used that location many times before, and it really makes a wonderful easy venue - especially since none of us are getting any younger and it eliminates much of the hard work of putting on an event.   It also lends itself to any kind of get-together, from completely casual to completely formal.

It’s a year away.  Other than the dates, nothing is set in stone.  It hasn’t even begun to be planned. Patty is seeking people to help plan and implement the plans.  If no one is willing to help, it makes it a little difficult for a “new leader” to even start to lead.

Patty, I sent you an email but never got a response. I thought the decisions would be made by the committee as a team. I have seen nothing about a date to show up for the committee. The summer date is fine with me (as you say June 9, 1969 was our graduation). If you look at the survey though, you will see that the majority wanted casual vs. formal/informal. I do have a suggestion for a 2 member band that would not be too expensive but any band that we can afford would be great. As I said, I think everyone is waiting to get with you as a "team effort" to go over what our options are and to make these decisions. I would like to hear from our other classmates as to what their thoughts are. Thanks!

The survey was split evenly on the time frame.  I believe the weekend was decided upon because Jimmie Anne was able to reserve the Pelican Yacht Club 6/8.

The initial planning meeting for the 50th Anniversary Party was held last evening.  We discussed venues and attire as well as the methods that we may use for registration of classmates and guests.  A few investigative assignments were made to those in attendance and we decided to meet again in 2 weeks.

It was decided that for attire we are going to leave it up to you.  You can come as the Queen of the Ball, The King of the Rodeo, Resort Chic, or whatever.   If shorts and Top Siders are your thing…come on in.

Those in attendance were:  Patty Ward Bieber, Lois Gordy, Linda Hays, Anita Beaver Sloan, and I.  Rick and Jimmie Anne stopped by to let us know how our bank account was looking for planning purposes.

The next meeting will be at 4:30pm Monday, August 13th at 3015 Okeechobee Rd, Fort Pierce, FL 34947.  If you would like to join in the planning phase…Please be there and join in the fun.

Eagle Proud,

Tommy Schwartz

Here's a brief overview of what was decided upon at today's Class Reunion Meeting:

  • The dates will be Friday and Saturday, June 7th & 8th of 2019 and both nights will be at The Pelican.  The Pelican largely because they will do the decorating pretty much for us (and clean up the mess).  We left Sunday open in the case that people want to get together on their own with friends who are in from out of town.
  • There will be no price increase over the last reunion.  It will remain at $95.00.  Our cost per person will be in the $80 range.  The rest will be to pay the entertainment, etc.
  • We are in the market for affordable entertainment who will play music that is from the era we graduated for Saturday night. Friday we plan on a low key DJ to mainly play background music so people can talk and get reaquainted.
  • We also need a couple of volunteers.  First we need someone who has the capability and the time to print up the name tags.  Secondly, if we want to have the Eagle brought down from the Historical Museum...we will need someone for that job.
  • It was also decided to invite members of other classes who would like to attend as well. 
  • The class website will be setup to take reservations in the near future.  Donations toward scholarships will also be accepted. 

In addition to those attending the last meeting, Susan Waters Black,  Barbara Cleveland Sinbine, and Ford Sloan were also with us tonight.  We decided that our next meeting will be after the 1st of the year. 

Stay Tuned and Always Eagle Proud,
