If you purchased your ticket...and then, "life happened" & plans changed, your ticket is transferrable to another classmate.  BUT, please let us know if you sell/ give it to a friend because we will be looking for you at the reception table.  Alternatively, consider donating it back to the committee to be given to a classmate who might not be able to attend without a little help. 

Short on cash for our 40th reunion?  If the ONLY reason that you can't attend the reunion is because of the cost, then let it be our secret.  We'd like to help you attend with tickets that may be returned to the committee.  Please message us.  

ATTIRE:  Whatdyawear?  Anything you want.  You'll see everything from Jimmy Buffet-wanna be's to guys & dolls dressed to the 9's to everything in between.  Just come!  What-you-wear is soooo 20th year reunion.  We're over it!  


AND THERE'S MORE!

Make it a FULLY WILDCATS '77 WEEKEND by making a stop at a ’77 classmate-owned restaurant after Friday's Happy Hour, prior to Saturday's big event, and/or Sunday lunch!   Let 'em know that you are a Wildcat ’77 and they'll take EXTRA GREAT care of you!

STILL MORE!

  • Faculty & Staff, NO CHARGE for you!  Our treat!  $40 for your guests, please.  Please RSVP to lauri.ramsey@gmail.com.
  • Kindly register on this website.  This will never be shared publicly.   
  • DEADLINE:  AUGUST 31:  Do we have a high school pic of you??  We want one!!  Scan photos of you & your friends from 1973-77 AND past reunions in high res. .jpg and send to us at netway5@sbcglobal.net.  
  • See Link Above for Raffle Items for the reunion!  Thank you to our generous classmates & friends!  

Here’s the WHS '77 Reunion Committee & Event Volunteers so far…and growing!   We still need lots & lots of help!  Come & join us! 

Tom Bray ~ Amy Campbell ~ Ken Cauthen ~ Ruth Click ~ Jay Collins ~ Janet Combs ~ David Cook ~ Mark Grierson ~ Kathleen James Harrison ~ Pat Hedrick ~ Suzi Kenyon Baumgardner ~ Chris Katapodis Treleaven ~ Philip Klein ~ Laurence Ligon ~ Ann Lynde Cook ~ CeAnne McClure Jones ~ Laurence Ligon ~ Matt Meyers ~ Cheryl Overton Spaans ~ Cindy Paul Meyers ~ Evelyn Schneider Clark ~ Sara Simon Dhom ~ Bob Stanbery ~  Jenny Symon Nettles ~ Allison Taylor ~ Lauri White Ramsey ~ Bob Wiedemer ~ Julie Wright Ligon

  • Have other cool new ideas?   Fabulous!  We'd love to hear 'em.  But, just letting you know ahead, we are way low on volunteers these days.  So, we may not have the manpower or resources to make it happen.  If you have a new idea for either event, be willing to take it on!
  • Interested to LEAD our 45th reunion?  This is a GREAT opportunity to participate alongside the current team.  Happy Retirement to us!  We're turning in our badges!  You'll get some great lessons learned & handover notes!  Let us know your interest and c'mon & join us as a volunteer for our 40th!  

ALL:  

Here's the deal...  We can plan every tiny detail of this party.  But, this is about classmates, not the details.  We've done our best to locate classmates & former teachers & staff to invite them.  However, when a friend receives a personal invitation from another, it's far more effective than anything we can possibly do to get 'em there.   If you have already purchased a ticket, this little blurb is especially for you.  

Please don't wait to reach out to old friends till last minute.  Give them the opportunity if they have logistics to work out.  They may need a little time to build courage.  Or, to recognize personal or professional/ networking value in attending, so plant the seed of encouragement!  Or, if it's a financial issue, perhaps you can help to sponsor an old friend to attend.  Or, not unheard of at our age, friends...maybe they just need a ride & some help to get there.  Please help to encourage the primary purpose of this party.  To get our classmates together & celebrate!     

Did you see this?  An awesome video our classmate, Ken Cauthen, put together featuring some familiar faces!  Check it out!  -->  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frO0RXRTF-8&feature=youtu.be
