Blast #6: Aiken reunion date change

Aiken High School
Class of 1971



Dear Classmate,

In case you’re wondering, your Reunion Committee volunteers have been paying attention to COVID news the last few months, which means as much as we’d love to have our event in May, this is not the time. We are concerned that, come Memorial Day weekend, people will remain uneasy about travel and large gatherings, making for a disappointing Reunion. As a result, the Reunion Committee decided to reschedule our 50th Class Reunion to Saturday, Nov. 6.

Why? So that our Reunion will be the best party possible, with the highest possible attendance. We’re planning for an evening when we see faces instead of masks, if we can pull it off (pun intended!); handshakes and hugs rather than elbow bumps and six-foot separation. A time when people feel safe being there, and also getting there—including our many out-of-town classmates who may be flying or driving.

The venue is the same: Centennial Barn, 110 Compton Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45215.

We hope to see you there. If you’ve already purchased a ticket, it’s valid for the new date. You can see updated profiles along with the lists of missing, passed, and found classmates on the Reunion website, here.
