UPCOMING EVENTS:

"Almost  Always on the 3rd Saturday of the month, 9:30 A.M."

Class of 1963 Monthly Breakfast

February breakfast will be in Newport,

February 16, 2019

9:30 A.M.

NEW LOCATION!

NEWPORT STEAK AND SEAFOOD,

1019 SW Coast Highway, 

Newport, OR

They are just a block or so before you get to the bridge in the south part of town.  On the east side of the highway, with plenty of parking behind the restaurant and on adjoining side streets.  They even gave us a reservation!

You may wonder, why a different location--everybody loves going to Georgie's.  TRUE, and that is exactly why we are changing the location.  Georgie's does not make reservations, and they keep getting more and more crowded.  So it has been a hassle for them to fit us in there in the last couple of years.   During the 55th last summer, a group met for breakfast at Newport Steak & Seafood, and people seemed to really like it there.  They have good food and the staff was very attentive and caring.  So--hope you can come!

~~~~~

February is our anniversary month--our class breakfasts began in February 2002 when a small group gathered in Salem for breakfast and decided to continue meeting while trying to locate all of us, in preparation for our 40th reunion.  That means we have been having monthly class breakfasts for 17 years!  During all that time we only missed having a breakfast three times!  One month, breakfast was scheduled in Central Oregon, but nobody came.  The other two months were due to a wind storm and then  another time an ice storm that happened on our breakfast day.

17 years x 12 months = 204 months, less those 3, so

this month must be our 201st class breakfast!  

And that's a lot of pancakes and hashbrowns! 

Please come if you can!

What's New on the Site?

January breakfast pictures

January Financial Report from Claudine

 


 

This site has had 46,403 visits since we started it in November 2013!

 

 

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!
