SAVE THE DATE—October 30 -- 50th Class Reunion

                              

50th Marin Catholic High School Reunion—Class of 1971

 The Trident Restaurant, Sausalito.  

 

Plans are underway with organizing a Marin Catholic High School Reunion—Class of 1971.  It will be our 50th Reunion (shhhh….just don’t tell anyone it will be our 50th)

 

This is a significant milestone in our lives.  Let’s celebrate our continuing journeys!

Here are the event details.  Save the date so you can join and participate in the fun!   

 

Date:               Saturday, October 30th, 2021

Location:         The Trident Restaurant (upstairs private venue with deck overlooking SF Bay)

Time:               6pm to 9pm (actual times may change slightly)

Cost:                $ 84 per person

Menu:             There will be plenty of appetizers.  This is a “mingle mixer” or “cocktail party” type program.  The event includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, no-host open bar, and spectacular views.

Payment:        For those who still have checks, make check out to: "Marin Catholic Reunion 1971"

and mail to:  Brian McCarthy, 502 Ava Ave, Rohnert Park, CA 94928

NOTE:  We will most likely be adding PayPal or Venmo as another payment option.

RSVP:          September 1st  (Note:  Website RSVP function not functional....coming soon).

 

Entertainment:   YOU !  While there will be no live band, we will have background music playing your favorites from last century.  WE (the attendees) are the real entertainment.  So, bring your unique perspectives; share lessons learned; contribute your observations on life; and bring your enthusiasm and upbeat attitude along with lots of smiles and laughs.  It’ll be FUN!

 

Volunteers:     We need you to spread the news via text messaging, postings, calling, and a little friendly arm twisting. Resurrecting old photos is always fun to have on display at the event or use to build excitement for the event (let alone make classmates blush or laugh).  Either way, if you have them, send photos to:     HINT:  Maybe YOU can volunteer......

 

Promotion:     We will continue to use our Reunion Website:   http://marincatholic71.com/

This link will point you to a secure site:  

https://www.classcreator.com/Kentfield-CA-Marin-Catholic-1971/class_index.cfm

 

Note:  The committee may start a Facebook page or group site. 

 

Side Entertainment:  

  1.  May include slide show/video of youthful exuberance  (Hint:  This is a “casting call” for a director, editor, writer, photo/video collector and/or manipulator, etc…)
  2. “Living the Dream”—your brief definition of what that means
  3. Stories / Rumors / Did you know?:  Written recollections (or short videos) of stories or rumors that were forgotten, never solved, or you never knew. 

 

What about COVID-19? 

Oh yeah—the pandemic!  We realize that some/many of us may still be in hibernation or in seclusion.  We all respect that.  Committee members decided to move forward with a celebration.  It’s important to not only reconnect, but to touch base and check in with people we care about.  We will honor sentiments, rules imposed by the County Health Department, or other impacts if the virus comes roaring back.  A postponement or even cancellation would be prudent if public officials re-enact limitations on event gatherings.

BELOW is our PREVIOUS 2016 Reunion

The Reunion was FUN! 

The short story 

Great to see everybody.  Everybody had a good time. 

Photo Review:  Some select, “authorized and approved”(?) photos have been posted.  More will come…..and hopefully, more will come from YOU—the participants.  (See below on how to upload your photos onto the class website.)

Yes, thanks to those organizers—Tim, Debby and Brian—but THANKS to you for showing up and being “the entertainment.”  A party without entertainment is dull and boring  (two of the most feared words in the English language—to be accused of being “dull or boring”).  We also want to THANK those classmates who called, posted, emailed, and talked to fellow classmates to encourage attendance at the reunion.  We also want to thank that drum-playing classmate who provided the music for the night!  Your efforts are appreciated!  

A classmate wrote after the event that sums it all up:  “We really have a nice group of people.”   

Congrats to all of you for participating.  We hope you had fun!

 

Let’s try to make an effort to have more frequent and smaller group gatherings to add more humor into our lives!  It takes a little energy to get together for lunch, dinner, dancing, hiking, biking, lectures, movies or just walking.  Heck, one small group created a regional Fishing Tournament as a ‘hook’ to get folks together.  The extra effort results in great laughs and brings additional joy to our individual journeys. 

 

 Continue to live your dream…..

YOU can help by spreading the word and removing all doubt that we tried to get the news out about our reunion.   Letting people know is one thing; getting people excited to participate may be another thing.  So, let's promote it.  Why deprive anyone of having fun?

"You can understand and relate to most people better if you look at them - no matter how old or impressive they may be - as if they are children. For most of us never really grow up or mature all that much - we simply grow taller. O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales." 

-Leo Rosten: American Educator
