Class of 1963 BREAKFAST!

Newport, Oregon

Saturday, April 16, 2022

10:00 A.M.

at Georgie's, 744 SW Elizabeth Street, Newport

10 people attended the April quarterly breakfast.  We all had a good visit, and we were especially glad to see Gail Grove Philo, Jimmy's wife, who was in the Newport area from her home in Arizona.  

Future breakfasts will be held quarterly, on the 3rd Saturday of April, July, October & January 

at 10:00 A.M.  (Subject to unforseen events like a pandemic, etc.)

 

Next breakfast:  July 2022 in Woodburn

Shirley Pykonen & her husband will host the next breakfast in Woodburn, and Claudine will host the October breakfast in Salem.

We still need someone to step up and volunteer to host a breakfast somewhere else in January, 2022.  Somewhere?  Where?  Albany?  

(Being a 'host' just means that you will make arrangements with the restaurant, determine whether they need to have a headcount of attendees and see what other requirements they may have for a group like us.)

We started having monthly class breakfasts 20 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 the first 19 years, we only missed 3 times--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!   Then, in March 2020, Covid-19 shut us down for two long years, until March 2022.

Breakfasts resumed in April, 2022, but going forward they will probably be quarterly instead of monthly.

Did you know?  Our site has now been viewed more than 70,000 times! 

This site has had 72,653 visits since we started it in November 2013!

 

 

 

To make it easier for planning our calendars:

, here is a  more-or-less schedule that we have begun using for our upcoming breakfasts .

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!
