55TH REUNION - 2014

Time Honored Traditions - Since 1878

                  Rocky River High School
                                      Class Of 1959

           September 13, 2014  /  11:00 am  -  ???????

(See below for those that will be attending)

We are writing to those of you who have registered for our 2014 RRHS Mini-Reunion to suggest you contact Classmates you’d like to see and encourage them to register now.  A fair number of people responded to our initial survey expressing their intention to come but have not as yet registered.  We realize that it may be impractical for some Classmates who live far away but we’d like to get great participation from those who are nearby.  September 13 may seem like a long way off but it’ll be here before we know it ….. or am I the only one for whom time is flying by ever faster?

So do it now – make sure the Classmates you want to see are there!  Registration form is attached if you need to send one to them.

For your convenience, below is the original invitation and registration form. See you in September, Bill


Dear Classmate:  The following announcement has been on our website for some time  -  have you seen it?

Quite a few Classmates have suggested not waiting until 2019 for another "regular" Class of "59” reunion and thought that maybe a reunion in 2014 would be a good idea.  We're excited to suggest a scaled down all-day event, starting about 11:00 am on Saturday, September 13, 2014.  It would be an informal cookout at the Cleveland Yacht Club featuring BBQ chicken and ribs dinner with all the trimmings.  We'd have beer, wine and pop (that's "soda" for those who have been away from Ohio to too long).  We're going to keep the budget at only $38.00 per person.  What a deal!        BUT WAIT . . .  THERE'S MORE.

We are told that our RR High School has undergone yet another transformation and that we could arrange a tour of the new school at 10:00 am on Saturday, before the CYC outing.  Also on Friday afternoon, a golf outing can be arranged.  Specifics will be settled based on interest.

On top of that, (part of the reason this date was picked) there is a RRHS football game on Friday evening.  Not sure who the opponent is but we thought maybe a tailgate party at Herb's would be fun. No heavy planning, just show up if you want to.  Sunday would be on your own - maybe lunch at the newly re-opened Bearden's?  Maybe just hanging out with those special friends you haven't seen in a long time.

We’ve had a positive response thus far.  Not to put too fine a pin on it friends, but we're not getting any younger.  What we need now is simply to have as many of our Classmates as possible return the attached reservation forms along with a check.  So send in the registration forms as early as possible, call your classmates and make sure they do the same and make it a go for the Class of ’59!
