Many thanks from the entire class to Deedy for doing a fantastic job organizing the 45th reunion and others who helped her.  Thank you to Murray for his presentation in honor of Nancy Marker Steinert.  The last few years have brought change.  The closeness, caring and hard work of our classmates eased that change into a most enjoyable event that will last in our memories for years to come!!  Thank you to all who made this event possible.  We look forward to the 50th!!  It will be here before we know it!

Missed at the reunion were these longtime friends Vicki Frankowitz,  Andi Cowan and Cindy Ellison.   Vicki recently moved to Jerusalem to be close to her family and we all wish her the very best.  The friends were all together in February 2011 to reunite and to wish Vicki well on her journey.

Who?  You, of course, and a spouse or friend

What?  Our 45th Fairview High School Reunion

Where?  Wyndham Gardens (currently called Holiday Inn) @ the Dayton Mall

When?  Friday and Saturday, July 29 and 30, 2011.  Mark your calendar!

Why?  It’s been 45 years since we graduated from Fairview High School.

Cost?  $45 for our 45th! Keep in mind, that’s for two days of fun with your fellow classmates!

Here’s the Scoop: Tom Studebaker, FHS Class of ’77, is the sales manager of the hotel and will be working with us on this special event. The hotel is going through major remodeling and should be finished by June 1. It will become the Wyndham Gardens late spring. Tom is blocking 25 rooms for $89 (plus tax) each day. (We can get more rooms at that rate, if available.) All rooms must be booked by July 8, 2011. But please book your room as soon as possible, so we can make more rooms available if we see a need. Their local number, a direct line to Tom Studebaker, is 1-937-432-3331. The toll-free number is 1-800-465-4329.  And their Web site is www.hidayton.com.

Friday Evening, 7 p.m. to 12 midnight or so
Casual Ice-Breaker with 60s Music
 

We will be in the bar area of the restaurant, called Pete and Rosie’s (formerly Rockie’s). Drinks and appetizers can be purchased individually. Other former classmates from FHS are welcome to join us. There will be a FHS Special Menu for us in the restaurant area for people who would like to order a dinner, available for several hours. To set the stage, we’ll have 50s, 60s, and 70s background music for the evening in the bar. If enough people are still there at midnight, the Wyndham will allow us to stay until 1 a.m.

Saturday Evening, 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m
Sit-Down Dinner/Dance (Business Casual)

It will be a sit-down dinner with a selection of either Stuffed Sole (flaky white fish with a crabmeat and scallop stuffing) or Chicken Marsala (chicken breast medallions with a rich Marsala wine sauce). Make your selection when you register. (People with special dietary needs should let us know what those needs are. A vegetarian or gluten-free entrée will be available, if you let us know when you register.) All entrées include the following: salad, chef’s mixed vegetable, baked potato, rolls, dessert, tea and/or coffee. There will be a Cash Bar. We will have a group picture before dinner, a program after dinner, and 50s, 60s, and 70s dj music after the program (Deedy and Larry of DJs Unlimited).
