Answers to a few questions...

Q: What is the dress code for the reunion?
A: Casual to both events

Q: What does the entrance fee at the Sports Mall cover? What do I need to bring?
A: Carrie Cook Pace has negotiated a discounted rate into this members-only club. We will have a snowcone machine, and each entrant will get one free snow cone. Additional snow cones will be available to purchase for $1 each. Please bring a picnic lunch, camping chairs and blankets. The weather is forecasted to be sunny and 95 degrees, so hats and sunblock are encouraged. Check in at the reception desk, where your money will be taken. (This money goes directly to the Sports Mall, not the reunion committee) We will be outside in a grassy area with access to the pool and sand volleyball courts. You will have access to the locker rooms if necessary. Please be mindful to watch your children to not disturb the members at the club.

Q: Why does the reception cost so much if we're only having hors d'oeurves and desserts?
A: Karen Cheshire Chatelain did a lot of research on caterers in the area. She presented some menus to the reunion committee and we decided on the caterer, based on the best value for the price. The caterer charges a per-person fee, plus a $200 delivery/set up fee. We had to rent MHS, and the cost came out to be about $2 per person for the rental. Unfortunately, with other costs associated, we will be lucky to break even on the cost of the reunion. If you are feeling generous, we would be happy to accept donations and sponsorship so the reunion committee doesn't have to pay the cost out of their own pockets.

Q: Why didn't I get an email invitation to the reunion?
A: Unfortunately, we had many incorrect email addresses. There were also several people who probably didn't get the invite because of Spam blockers. Please don't feel offended if you didn't hear about the reunion on the first try. We tried really hard to get together lists of contact information, but unfortunately the process is very time consuming. Thank you to those who forwarded the info out to other alumni. Hopefully we'll be more organized for the next reunion.

I wanted to say Hi to everyone. I've been stuck here in Iraq for the past year so you know I wasn't there. I may not have talked to many of you back in the day, but I had a blast in HS because of you guys.
