Plans are firming up for the ONCE IN A LIFETIME Coronado High School Class of '65 50th Reunion.... inviting members of sister classes 1964 and 1966, alumni, and other classes to celebrate with us.
The three-day event will be at Days Hotel Scottsdale and feature a school tour, Show and Tell, Memory Lane, a Vets' Tribute, In Memoriam, visits with old (even older than us!) teachers, a welcome party, craft beer tasting, buffet dinner, cocktail parties, antique cars and lots of time and space to reconnect with old pals.
We are trying to hold the price point at $75 for the dinner and two parties and daily refreshments. Room rates will be an incredible $75-95.
We were the first four-year graduating class at Coronado, and everyone says we were the best!
We were together when President Kennedy was assassinated, a world-changing event. We shared first dates, first kisses, first heartbreaks, first cars. In our senior year, we shared the first official invasion of Vietnam. We saw the enactment of Medicare. We saw the birth of the Civil Rights movement.
We hung out at Ricky's or the Dash Inn. We snuck into the Roundup Drive-In. We cruised Central... or Scottsdale Road. We won the juke box!!!
So please, pass the word. Get in touch. I will soon post a website, and establish a new Shutterfly page. In the meantime, contact me at 772 834 6167, or see our Coronado Class of '65 Facebook page. It's public.
See you in October...
Valerie Jones, CHS Class of '65
