Our 50th Reunion is one for the history books.  What a great turn out and an amazing weekend.  Friday night we hosted a "meet and greet" for all that were registered.  There was approximately 60+ who attended and got an early start on reacquainting with friends from both Irving High School and MacArthur.  Cash bar, lots of laughs, a few doggies and most out of towners gathered from 6:00 until 9:00 pm.  Then a late-night stop at Esparza's Mexican Food Restaurant in Grapevine for those still not wanting to end the night.  

Saturday was 'do your own thing' for most, but for the Committee it was show time to decorate and get ready for the big evening.  Doors opened at 6:00.  Registration went smoothly, thanks to Pam Flynt Knight, Becki Campbell Gilliam, Elaine Barham Vowel and others.  A full fajita buffet opened at 6:30 and although the line was slow moving, the food was delish!  I know our out-of-town guests enjoyed having good ol' Tex-Mex again and free margaritas!  

Close to 200 were in attendance for the evening and our DJ, Bryan Martin and MC, Monica Demar kept the music and activities lively!  Individual photos for an impending memory book (I hope you got yours taken) as well as group photos of Irving's Baseball team and class photos of both Irving and Mac will be included.  If you were not able to make it to the reunion, you will still be able to order a memory book in the next few weeks.  I will send out an email to everyone on how to do that.

MHS even had two very special guests, Melalee Camak and Tracy Youngblood, former teachers at Mac joined the fun and reunited with their now 70-year-old students.  So nice to see them both and reminisce.  

Also, a very special thanks to Patsy Farris Kirkpatrick and Robert Worchester on the beautiful “In Memory” display of our departed friends.  The list grows ever so sadly.

The evening included special dances for those married 45+ years, those that married their high school sweetheart and all singles (where were the single guys???)  Then wound down with the presentation of awards and recognition of the Committee who helped make the evening possible and CAKE! 

To all that made it, thank you!  Coming and having a great evening with us made the 3 year long planning well worth it!  To those unable to come, please enjoy the photos we have posted on FB and here, on our website.

Will there be another reunion in 2025? 

Sincerely,

Your AMAZING Committee Members!

Mark Wagner, Linda Mangum Hastings, Robert Worchester, Patsy Farris Kirkpatrick, Pamela Flynt Knight, Elaine Barham Vowel, Becki Campbell Gilliam, Dave Patrick, Larry and Rhonda Stevens, Candace Glavin Kinsey and Ed Rios

Postponement Announcement
 

Happy Summer to all of you!

I trust you are staying safe and enjoying your summer to the best of your ability given the current situation in our country.

We are starting to hear from some of you regarding concerns over the second chosen date for the reunion of September 5th and it seems almost unanimous that September is too soon to have a gathering of our size.  Covid numbers are climbing, not decreasing and people are worried.

The committee wants to do the right thing.  We want everyone to feel safe and come to have a good time and hopefully not have to wear face masks.  Although we cannot predict when that might be, we believe it won’t be before the end of 2020.

That being said, we are postponing the date once again in hopes that everyone will feel good about being in a room filled with others our own age when that time comes.

Although we do not have a firm date, we will keep you posted as we go forward.  Because we have invested in this reunion, the hotel is more than willing to accommodate us whenever we feel it is safe and hold our previously paid deposits as part of the agreement.  That being said, I would like to ask you to please let us keep whatever money you have sent in so that we can continue to plan and meet future deposit deadlines.  In the event we cancel entirely, we will do our best to refund everyone that has paid. 

Please take care to be safe so that you will be able to join us whenever we can host this much anticipated 50th reunion.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

Your committee
