GROSSE POINTE HIGH SCHOOL
CLASS OF 1968 – 50th HIGH SCHOOL REUNION
Dear Fellow Classmates:
Memories of friends and community are special. We didn’t realize it at the time but here we are, fifty years later, and our lives are still intertwined. We may not remember faces or names. We may not have thought about the Class of 1968 for years but it’s time to come together to celebrate! It’s our 50th High School Reunion!
Plans have been made to celebrate in our uniquely Grosse Pointe way and we hope that you will join us at the festivities. And, if you haven’t been back to the Detroit area in a while, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by everything that the Motor City has to offer!!
We have many events planned for the weekend of September 21st-23rd, 2018. Starting on Friday, we will be gathering at Atwater in the Park for an informal get-together around 7:00 p.m. There’s a lot happening in the Kercheval in the Park area with several new bars and restaurants so it’s a fun place to meet. There is also a trolley service that travels to and from Kercheval in the Park through The Village and The Hill and it turns around in Grosse Pointe Farms near Stephens Road and goes back to the Park. Park along the route, hop onboard and leave the driving to the trolley.
Saturday, we have arranged for a tour of The High which is tentatively scheduled for 11:00 a.m. See how The High has weathered these past fifty years! And, the big event, the reunion is at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club at 6:30 p.m. There will be food stations with a variety of entrée items, as well as music and a cash bar. This will be a memorable evening with a videographer and other surprises so you definitely don’t want to miss it! The cost is $68.00 per person…the same amount that we charged 20 years ago! You can find registration information through this link. We would like to have your permission to provide a list of classmates to attendees and non-attendees, too. We will also be recognizing those classmates who are no longer with us.
Sunday, we will be gathering at Windmill Pointe Park at the foot of Barrington and Windmill Pointe, or “The Park Park”. We will meet at 11:00 a.m. for an informal picnic. The Fairfax Market at 899 Beaconsfield is open Sunday mornings so you can stop there to pick up supplies. There are also a variety of restaurants or bakeries, Cornwall Bakery on Kercheval in the Park, Marais on Kercheval in The Village, or Red Crown restaurant in the Park to name a few, where you can grab some fun food items. We will have some grills going but please BYO everything! Rain or shine! Look for signs!
We really hope that this reunion will bring us all together in a special way. Let’s sing, dance, reminisce and party like it’s 1968!! Hope to see you soon!!
