It's over!!

Yay! We can breathe a sigh of relief! :) Our 10-year reunion has come and gone, and we had a great time! Thanks to everyone who was able to attend, we had a LOT of people come and that is what made it a big success. We had pretty big numbers especially compared to other schools that I've talked to. We as the reunion committee truly appreciate the words of encouragement and gratitude from our fellow classmates. So THANK YOU!!

We've had a few questions that I'll address really quickly. We are definitely planning to keep this blog going and going...and going.... :) I'd strongly suggest signing up for the free email notification in the sidebar--that way whenever the site is updated you will know about it via email and won't have to keep checking randomly. I will put up a slideshow with the pictures I took at the reunion. If you took any with your camera that you'd like to share, please feel free to email them to us and we'll try to add them in.

**NOTE--my family is moving this week so life is completely hectic. Therefore I won't be updating this blog or adding the slideshow probably for several weeks, just FYI!! We might not have internet for a bit, so please be patient! :)

People have also asked for a directory of some sort to keep contact with old friends. That is something I'd like to make available, but again, that will have to wait until after I get settled into our new house. I will not post anyone's personal email on this blog, but perhaps will send out an email with the info. If you want to opt out of including your email for whatever reason, please let me know.

We'd like this website and our class email to be the information center for our class, so keep it bookmarked and make sure our class email is an "allowed address" in your email service. We want to keep updated with your info to make planning the 20 year even easier! :)

Thanks again, it was wonderful seeing you all and enjoying everyone's company!! Have a great day.

MHS 10 Year Reunion CHANGE!!!!!!!!

Hi again, everyone!


We have decided to change the restaurant for the Alumni Dinner, in order to provide less expensive ticket prices so that more people can come. We want everyone who can to be there! We want to reunite! (that sounds cheesy....oh well.) Again, we've spent a lot of time working out the details so please support us and buy tickets!!!!! Over 100 people have bought tickets already.

Family Picnic and Alumni Dinner Package Cost: $25.00 per person
**This is a HUGE savings, people!!
**Those who have already purchased tickets at the previous prices will be refunded the difference within the next several days. (Please be patient--we will work as quickly as possible!)
EDITED TO ADD: All refunds have been made. Please check your emails!

Here are the new details:

Saturday, August 18, 2007
7:00 pm

It will be held at Buca di Beppo, a delicious Italian restaurant with a fun atmosphere.
935 E. Fort Union Blvd. (Midvale)

We will have a "family style" dinner with several selections to chose from. The ticket price will include the dinner, soft drinks, as well as the tip.
There will be a cash bar available.

We will have a short program, possibly a slideshow (not 100% positive on that) and a trivia/questionnaire game with prizes. There will NOT be a DVD of the slideshow provided with the ticket price.

Alumni and guest are invited to attend. (No children, please)
Business Casual attire (Please leave your prom dress and matching PJ's at home!)
Parking is free.

The Family Picnic has not changed.

Saturday, August 18, 2007 at 11:30 am (We have the pavilion until 2:30 pm)
Willow Creek Park (8400 South Highland Drive)

Drinks and a treat will be provided. Please bring your own lunch and a blanket.

We'll kick off the reunion festivities with a fun, casual picnic at the park. Alumni, spouses/significant others, and children are welcome! Bring the whole family along--you know you want to show off your cute kids to your old high school friends. :) If you don't have any kids, feel free to come anyway and take your turn in the bounce house!

Family Picnic and Alumni Dinner Package Cost: $25.00 per person
**Ticket price includes Family Picnic (drinks, treats, activities, etc.) and the Alumni Dinner (Dinner, beverages, tax/service fees). It also helps cover all other extra expenses of organizing this reunion.

If you only want to come to one of the events, you can purchase separate tickets.
Family Picnic Only: $5 per person (children are free)
Alumni Dinner Only: $22 per person

Also, there is a NEW deadline: Tuesday, August 14, 2007 is the last day you can purchase tickets. The prices will remain the same.

**Slideshow: We might not put together a slideshow, but still send in any pictures if you want, and we'd love to see current pictures if you have any.
**After you buy the ticket, we will send you a questionnaire to fill out via email and will use them to award prizes at the dinner.

Please register and purchase tickets by clicking on the "Buy Now" button in the category you desire, on the sidebar.

Please contact the Reunion Committee if you would like to send a check or if you have any questions.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone!
