ANNOUNCEMENTS

From Lisa Glasco:

 

 

Hi all! How is it possible we are discussing a 40-year reunion?
We are thinking this reunion will not have a lot of structure; less planning for Mary and those on the front-end getting things ready, which provides the ability to relax and enjoy the event with everyone else.
I hate to mention it, but it is necessary, due to the last year and unknows.   We may need to follow some Colorado and La Plata County Covid-19 rules.  We have a couple of months, so let’s see what the requirements may be for an outside gathering as we get closer.  There is plenty of space, but it would be helpful to have an idea of how many plan on attending due to the rules (a yes, plus # or no on this page or a message to Mary Neely would be helpful).  We could open this up to others if the head count allows. For now, Mary and I discussed class of 81 and family (with a couple of exceptions we are making). 
Saturday June 26, 2021
2318 County Road 240, Durango
Open all day for fun and games. Bring your dancing shoes and a chair and you are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the day.  Kirk James Blues Band 7 PM – 11 PM. 
We look forward to seeing old friends and celebrating life!

 

From Garth Glasco:

Since we’ve had a few comments and questions regarding the fee, we will clarify.
When all is paid for, the party will cost around $5K.  Much of the event will be paid in full by the time of the event.  Except for the cash bonus for the band at the end of the night.  If we have 100 people who donate $50, then the expenses will be covered.  
My experience is most people are quite generous when it comes to donations.  If we collect enough donations to cover expenses, then the rest will be given to charity in the name of DHS Class of ’81, such as the local food bank.  
If we collect thousands over expenses, then thousands will go to charity.  I have no problem treating this event as a vehicle to collect funds for charity, in the name of the DHS Class of ’81.  We have the potential to collect thousands for charity.  No pressure.  
All we want is for many people to have a great time at the event.

From Garth:

Peace, Love, Sex Fun, we’re the Class of ‘81
Since the last post, we have confirmed some things, so here is an update for the Durango High School Class of ’81, 10-year reunion (x4, I couldn’t say it).  At this point in time, it will be helpful to get a head count of the attendees (thanks to those that have responded). 
Invitees: All DHS Class of ’81, their guests, friends, family, kids, and grands (?!) are welcome.  
Date: The weekend of June 25, 26, and 27th. 
Venue: Glasco Compound, 2318 CR 240, 3.1 miles up Florida Road (CR 240) from Durango, on the left.  Once you past Timberline Estates on the right, you will see mile marker 3 on the right, and we will be the second driveway on the left.  It will be a paved driveway up a hill, then drop down into a valley. 
Purpose of the Event: PEACE, LOVE, FUN (the other might add pressure so not saying it). To gather under Mother Nature’s sunshine and moonlight to celebrate life and share our experiences after high school, those few short years ago.  
This will be an outdoor event, with camping for those who want to camp.
The big day is Saturday, 6/26, day for picnic, horseshoes, horseplay… see below for more details. 
Classmates are welcome to begin gathering anytime Friday 6/25, some will already be there, and we’ll continue through the night.  Sunday, 6/27, will be clean up, and hopefully will not continue through the night.
This will be a family friendly event. No debauchery. We’re not in high school anymore. 
Dogs/Pets: Yes, everyone loves dogs.  Yes, dogs and camping go together. However, for this event, please make other arrangements for your pets.  With all the people, we’d prefer no dog drama.  If exceptions are made, they’ll have to be contained or always leashed. 
Camping: All DHS Class of ’81 are welcome to camp, along with their guests.  Unfortunately, at our age, many of us have resorted to campers, trailers, RV’s, since we want a bed, kitchen, and a bathroom to comfortably sit while camping.  All self-contained camping vehicle toys are welcome; however, space may be limited. Anyone planning on bringing their toys, please let me or Lisa know ahead of time.  We need to keep a count.  First come, first serve.
There is plenty of tent camping space, or simply sleeping below the stars.  You can always stay at any of Durango’s finest 5-star hotels.
Provided: In general, this is a “if you want it, you better bring it yourself” event.  You can always bring enough to share.
There is somewhat limited power and water.  There will be Porta potties, including a handicap porta potty, and a wash station. 
There is a low-flow tiny shower for the campers if needed.
The Big Day, Saturday, 6/26: The band will be the longtime local favorite, Kirk James Blues Band http://www.kirkjames.com/music.html.  They will be playing 7 to 11PM.  Kirk will have 4 musicians and a sound system, so I'm sure they will be sounding great. 
We will have the Durango renowned, upper classman Jerry Martinez, CJ’s Diner, cater Saturday night.   Jerry will bring his grills, and have grilled hamburgers, chicken, brats, along with some sides.  At this time, we are thinking the catering will start late afternoon and continue for some time into the evening. 
There will be a couple kegs of beer, therefore a KEGGER!  After all we are the class of ’81.
Fees: We aren’t charging for the pleasure of getting together. If you want to donate towards the expenses, please see Garth, Lisa or Scott Callaghan (we won’t say no).
So please let us know if you will be joining us for a weekend (headcount…) of gathering, sharing, great music, some food, kegs, and a great time!
