Based on the feedback received and discussion with some of the committee members, we have narrowed our choice of venues to the Union/ Springfield/Kenilworth Area or the Pines Manor in Edision.
We will hold the reunion in late April / early May 2016, so we still have over a year to plan.
The committee will meet soon and will provide more details.

Hello Classmates....sometime around April 1st,2015 we will start planning for the UHS Class or 81 35 year reunion to be held in April/May 2016.... and THAT'S no April fool!!!!!
Good Morning, all.
As promised, we are going to start planning our 35 year reUNION shortly, which will take place in early 2016. It is a year off, but as we all know, time goes by very quickly.
Many of us have remained in contact via social media, and other functions like the softball rumble, but we would still like for all of you to help network with other members of the class of 81 and let them know we are doing this. The 30 year reunion was a great time, and I'm sure this one will be as well.
Our initial idea is to have the reunion at a less formal place and probably somewhere in central Jersey (Edison Area).
