Event Summary:

PHS Class of 79 Reunion

Start Date: Friday, September 20, 2019

End Date: Sunday, September 22, 2019

Last Day to Book: Friday, August 31, 2019



Please note regarding pricing and payment.  This is very important.  The site we use allows us to utilize credit cards for payment.  This is great because most of us use cards for purchasing most everything.  However, they charge for the priviledge of using those cards.  SO, I have added the expense of using the card to the base price each event/item on the registration.  I anticipate that most folks will utilize the credit card option available for payment.  Those payments will go directly into the class bank account for use in paying the costs associated with this reunion.  But if you decide you want to send in a check instead, please email me at emmhuston@gmail.com


Spread the word and tell your classmates about this event ~ we aren't getting any younger and we want to see everyone there!
