"We May Never Pass This Way Again…”

Westchester High School ~ Class of 1977 ~ 40th Class Reunion

Let’s make every minute of the weekend count!   Indeed…  we may never pass this way again!

Gettin’ the party started on...

Friday, September 29, 2017 ~ Saint Arnold Brewing Company  “The Investors Pub”

2000 Lyons Ave ~ 713.686.9494

http://www.saintarnold.com   **Free Parking

4:30 PM – private tour of the brewery

5-7 PM Wildcats ’77 Mixer

Meet up with Wildcats ’77 in a super-chilled environment of the private pub!  All-you-can-drink Saint Arnold’s beer, root beer & pub snacks.   Let’s get together without the crunch of time, the competition of music & some elbow room!

Wait!  The night is young! 

Make it a FULLY WILDCATS '77 WEEKEND by booking a dinner reservation for Friday (or early Saturday!) at a ’77 classmate-owned restaurant!   Let 'em know that you are a Wildcat ’77 and they'll take EXTRA GREAT care of you!

We're in short supply of volunteers for both Friday & Saturday events.  So, how about it?  Which volunteer opportunity (opportunities) sound GOOD???!!!  (UPDATED 6/22)

Registration Table:

We will need MANY MORE volunteers at both the brewery and hotel events.  Can you help to work a shift at either brewery / hotel...or both?  C'mon.  It really is fun!     

***Particularly those who haven't been to a reunion in eons, additionally our faculty/ teachers, normally love this opportunity because they have a head-start on putting faces with nametags before the lights go dim!   

Memorabilia Table:

We will have smaller space in the Window Box ballroom, but we plan to include a small table for memorabilia.  Do you have the resources to pull off leading this volunteer project?

Decorations:

We have a lead, but need a committed worker bee with a knack for decorations for both Friday & Saturday events.  

Have other cool new ideas?

Sure!  Hit us up!  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.  Many of us have worked together for decades, but it's time to retire!  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!
