Class BREAKFAST will be at Newport Steak & Seafood, 1019 South Coast Highway.  

10:00 A.M. on Saturday, August 7th, 2021

Reminder:  The restaurant, like so many others, at times now experiences staff shortages, which causes delays in getting food out from the kitchen.  They did schedule us BUT, they require us to give them an exact head count of attendees a couple of days before the event.  This will help the restaurant to give us their best service.

Therefore, you will need to please RSVP by 8:00 A.M. on Wednesday, August 4th, and let us know that you plan to attend!!!  No exceptionsYou can RSVP by sending an email to  newportcubs63@yahoo.com, or you can call or text Patty Holler at 541 265-7117.  Please respond by 8:00 A.M. on Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2021, as I will be calling the restaurant to give them a count shortly after that time. 

So far, these people have indicated that they will attend:

John & Karen Owen

Murva & Don Milbradt

Dennis Strand & Louie Maki

Tommy Thompson

Steve & Patty Holler

Sue Fowler & Ken

Gary Peterson

To add your name to the list, please respond!  There is still room for more to attend...hope to see you there.


Starting in September, we should be able to resume our previous schedule of meeting on the 3rd Saturday of the month.  One change though--since we are all now a couple of years older than we used to be, we decided to schedule future class breakfasts at 10:00 A.M. instead of at 9:30 A.M. to give a little more time to those who travel from a distance.  Scroll down the page to see the general location schedule for future breakfasts.

HOPE YOU CAN COME!

We started having monthly class breakfasts 19 years ago, in February 2002!  That was when a small group gathered in Salem area to begin working on trying to locate all the class members, prior to our 40th reunion that was scheduled for the following year!  During those 19 years, we've only missed 3 times (until Covid-19 hit)--once when we scheduled the breakfast in central Oregon & no one showed up, and two other times when we cancelled the event due to severe weather limitations!   GO CUBS

 

 

 

Did you know?  Our site has now been viewed more than 58,000 times! 

This site has had 65,800 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.        Tigard, 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!
