ANNOUNCEMENT!

55th Reunion!

COUNTDOWN FOR CLASS OF 1963…55TH CLASS REUNION FRIDAY, AUGUST 3 AND SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 2018

Less than 2 months to go until the class of ’63 is meeting again in Newport to get re-acquainted, to tell old stories, to see who has the receding hairline, who has the most grandkids (or great-grandkids), the most ailments etc. But the most important thing is for you to come: we never know if it will be the last time to see someone special. Bring your spouse and/or significant other or come single…but please come. As we said in our last email: it won’t be a party without YOU!!!

FRIDAY- Aug 3 Fireside Room at the Embarcadero (1000 SW Bay Blvd Newport) 4:30 – 8 pm In honor of our Newport fishing heritage we will be serving King Crab, bay shrimp, clam chowder, green salad and bread for your pleasure. If you would like to add something different to eat, please feel free to bring. Ice/ice chests will be available with a few beverages, but again, bring your favorite beverage for yourself and some to share if desired. Casual attire. We will be inside, and may have a fire in the fireplace if the evening is cool. Please RSVP for this activity, either to Ruth by replying at this email address r2clark@citlink.net or to Beth Fogarty at bdfog11@gmail.com or responding to either Jeanene Zwicker Johnson or Pat Plunkett Holler.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON – AUG 4 PORT OF NEWPORT ACTIVITY ROOM (2120 SE Marine Science Drive Newport) This facility is part of the Marina RV Park at South Beach 11:30-4:00 pm Please bring a food item to share, if possible, along with your own favorite beverage. Ice and ice chest will be provided as well as needed supplies for eating. This is a drop-in event with a casual indoor/outdoor setting. If possible try to be present for a short 1:00 meeting lead by our monthly breakfast crew. Then at 1:30 pm a group class picture will be taken by a professional photographer. You may order a group 8x10” colored picture for $20. He will also take any personal pictures of individuals or other groups for the same $20 price for each picture.

Again…Lucky you if you still have family and friends living in the area in which you are welcome to stay. For the rest of us, there are many great places, in all price categories. Couple of suggestions but these reservations need to be made ASAP (based on availability) for these prices:

1. Waves of Newport Motel 820 NW Coast St Newport. 1 800 282-6993 $119 for King bed or $129 for 2 queen beds plus tax. When making reservations mention: 55th Reunion, Class of 63.

2. Embarcadero Resort 1000 SE Bay Blvd Newport 1 800 547-4779 Queen Studio $129.99 or King Studio $139.99 plus tax. When making reservations mention: Group Code RUTH CLARK

3. Marina RV Park at South Beach 2120 SE Marine Science Drive Newport. 541 867-3321 Prices vary depending on type of rig you will be parking.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Newport in August.

To make it easier for planning our calendars:

Based on our breakfast location history of the past few years, here is a  more-or-less schedule that we have begun using for our upcoming breakfasts . It is "more-or-less" because we can always make a change if it seems good to do so.  (For example, say if someone who lives farther away than Western Oregon should happen to come through, we are always happy to change our schedule to a date or location so they would be able to join us!!)  

ANNUAL REVOLVING BREAKFAST SCHEDULE:

Jan. & July       Woodburn or Wilsonville area

Feb. & Aug.      Newport

Mar. & Sept.     Spirit Mountain, Grand Ronde

Apr & Oct.        Tualatin or elsewhere on I-5

May & Nov.       Albany

June & Dec.     Salem  

The idea is to make the breakfast sites reachable for as many classmates as possible!

Do YOU have other ideas?  Other locations where you would like to meet for breakfast?  In the past we have tried the Eugene area a few times, but the turnout there was usually low.  We have never met in Corvallis, so that is another possibility.    Would really like to hear your ideas!

Please contact us at newportcubs63@yahoo.com and let us hear your ideas!

Need your help:  We have NO pictures in the "Pictures of Years Past" Sections for the 1950s and the 1980s.  If you have some that you would like to share, please contact us at newportcubs63@yahoo.com.  If you will loan them to Pat, she will scan them & return to you promptly!

 

If you would like to have a better-quality copy of any of the photos from this site,  please "Contact Us" and we will be glad to email the digital file to you!  PPH
