CLASS OF 1979 - 40TH REUNION
Hello fellow Griffin,
It has been 40 years since we walked the halls as a Winnetonka Griffin. It’s time to gather, celebrate and reconnect with our classmates of 1979. Please make plans to join us August 3, 2019 for this wonderful event, sharing the evening with friends and acquaintances from our high school days. We have reserved The View at Briarcliff, located at 4000 N. Mulberry Drive, Kansas City MO 64116 for this reunion. A full description of the facility along with pictures can be found on their website, Theviewatbriarcliff.com
Registration begins at 6:00 PM at which time appetizers will be served as well as access to a cash bar. A dinner buffet will begin at 7:00 PM that will feature Beef brisket, Tuscan chicken, salad, vegetable medley, roasted potatoes, rolls, dessert, tea and water. Entertainment will begin at 8:30 PM until 11:00 PM featuring Music4Memories.net for the evening. A group picture will be taken by Wilborn Photography and available for purchase.
The reunion cost will be $75.00 per person if you respond by July 13. Without pre-registration, the cost will be $100.00 per person at the door. To provide the caterer with an accurate count for the buffet and to insure enough food for everyone an early response would be appreciated. Please make your check payable to: “Winnetonka Class Reunion 1979” and send it along with the registration form included in this mailing. Mail all correspondences to: Winnetonka Class of ’79, P.O. Box 12595, Kansas City MO 64116-0595. Feel free to invite guests and other classmates from other graduating classes as we would love to include them as well. They will however need to register and pay using the same guidelines stated for our class.
We would love to be able to incorporate a slide show of various high school memories for everyone to view and enjoy during the event. If you have pictures from high school of you and your friends, at prom, during activities, sporting events, etc… that you would like included in the slideshow, please scan them and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our goal is to have as many people, activities and events represented as possible.
The Courtyard by Marriott KC at Briarcliff is offering a block of hotel rooms for our event. This Courtyard is located in the same building as our reunion. Rooms will be available Friday and Saturday night with check-in at 3 PM and checkout at Noon. Rooms can be reserved for $119 per night plus applicable sales tax. You must inform the hotel you are associated with the Winnetonka class of ’79 and book by July 12 in order to get this rate. Their phone number is 816-841-3300. An additional hotel Towneplace Suites is located next door in the event the Courtyard by Marriott is full.
Locating classmates is the most difficult and time consuming part of the committee’s job. In addition to the enclosed registration form you will find a list of “missing classmates” we have not been able to locate and need assistance regarding contact information. Any help you can give us in locating these individuals would be greatly appreciated. If you are not planning to attend but can provide contact information for any of these classmates, please reach out to us through email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately, due to cost, no future reminders will be sent.
We look forward to seeing you on August 3!!
