It's hard to believe that it was over 8 months ago we first announced
our Fabulous, Fantastic, Fiftieth Reunion event.

What You Need To Know and Do Right Now
  We ran out of discounted rooms. However, the hotel has graciously granted us 10 more hotel rooms and that's it! Don't forget we have a BIG discount. Mention you're with the Stranahan 65 Alumni to book at $105 single ­$115.00 double. Rooms include the custom hot buffet breakfast. See more at our website www.stranahan65.com  Not sure whether you will be staying at the hotel? Why not play it safe and reserve your room. It won't be charged to your credit card until the reunion. If you decide not to stay at the hotel you can cancel prior to. At least you will have locked in your rate. If you booked at the higher rate, let us know to readjust to our discount rate.

We need you to do this ASAP. Why? We're making decisions right now concerning food, decorations, room layouts, custom reunion souvenirs and lots of surprises. Can't do that at the last minute.

3.) Take a look at the lost list and try to find just one old friend.

What We're Experiencing
Unfortunately with all of the technology available to us we have found ourselves in a communication block. Last reunion we noticed we had fewer alumni phone numbers and this year it is quite apparent that over 60% of our phone numbers are now disconnected. Ray Heaton is doing a knock out job calling the alumni to remind them that TIME IS RUNNING OUT. Recently Jean called over 40 phone numbers and was only able to connect with 5 alumni, the rest were disconnected or she got a voice mail.
So it's imperative that you help your association by not only providing your current phone number, email, home address etc. but let us know other classmates information as well. Based on the current RSVPs we expect this reunion to be a record breaker in attendance. We're excited to report we have alumni coming to their first reunion. Others are flying across the country and from other countries. Let's all make this special event a priority this time. As the saying goes "Time and Tide Wait for No Man". We can't predict our future and who knows what the next 5 years will bring. However, we can rely on gathering together for 3 special days to revive good memories from our past and make new ones for our future.

One last thing, do you know an alumni that would love to attend, but may need assistance with accommodations, ticket or transportation? Please let us know. We are gathering a list of volunteers who may be able to help. Also if you would like to share a ride or are local and have a spare room you could offer for the week­end please let us know that as well.
