50th Reunion Planning

Yes!  We are actively planning the 50th reunion of the Lincoln Northeast Class of 1969 to be held in the fall of 2019 in Lincoln, Nebraska and some of the details are already in place.  The weekend we picked is one when the Huskers are not in town playing a football game :

The weekend activities for which we have firm plans include:

  • Friday evening:  Hillcrest Country Club (https://hillcrestcountryclub.com/), Informal get together with food (heavy hors d'oeuvres), cash bar, photo booth, memorial display, and more...
    7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Check-in, name tages, figure out who's who
    8:00 p.m.  Welcome, announcements, review of events, and slight speechifying  
    9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.  Conversation, DJ music and games
  • Saturday morning (time TBD) tour of the Lincoln Northeast high school building led by our very own Reed Stephenson
  • Golf outing Saturday (time TBD) for those who partake in such self-abusive games
  • Saturday evening:  Isles in Havelock (http://islespubandpizza.com/), still not formal get together with food (tastees, runzas, pizza, salad), cash bar
    Conversation, prizes, and competition to determine things like
    • Who looks most like they did in high school?
    • Which pair of classmates now look like they were twins separated at birth?
    • Did everyone manage to match their socks tonight?

Activities and coordination is in the works for:

  • Block(s) of hotel rooms are being reserved.  Details to follow.
  • Guided bus tour of Lincoln
  • How best to collect, curate, and post/publish photos of the reunion

So, you see lots has been done, and lots is to be done, but plans are firming up.

Remember:  Spread the word!  Find and tell your long lost classmate friends.  If we do this right, Kevin Bacon (famous for the Six Degrees of Separation phenomenon) may even attend.
