If you’ve seen our facebook site, Classmates or CHS sites, or perhaps heard from someone else, we’ve chosen Capital Reunions to plan a fabulous event for us this September. Make sure to update your information on this website and buy your tickets. For those coming from out of town, we’ll have a block of rooms with discounted rates (need confirmation on that).
What a great opportunity to catch up, remember the good times, laugh a lot, maybe cry a little, share pictures, and vow to keep in touch with someone you haven’t seen in ages. So whether you’re married, divorced, single, fat, skinny, bald, gray, a huge success (would you like to sponsor bar time?) or between opportunities, it’s all good!
Here’s what we know so far:
Our main event is September 25, 2010 – a party you won’t want to miss!
We look forward to seeing you!
