Hi, RHS '69ers!

Time to register!

The Main Event on Saturday night, October 19, 7:00-11:00, will be at the Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center on the University of Texas at Dallas campus, which is in north Richardson, accessible from Campbell or Floyd. It is the same facility used by the Class of '68 for their Reunion in June 2018.

The entry fee for the Main Event at the 50th Reunion will be less than half of what we anticipated, without any reduction in quality!  Registration for the Main Evert is $40 per person.

The "official" hotel for the reunion is the Courtyard by Marriott in Richardson. We have arranged for a block of rooms at the Courtyard, which is on Greenville, just north of Campbell (2191 N. Greenville Ave, Richardson, TX 75082, 972-994-9933), at the special rate of ....wait for it.....$69! For those who like to imbibe, it would be a good idea to stay at the hotel even if you live in the DFW area.

To get the special $69 rate, tell them you are with the Richardson High School Class of 1969. (If they balk, tell them to check with Kristi or with operations manager Jessica Dillon.) You should also be able to get the rate for two days before and two days after the event. I suggest making your reservation as soon as possible. They are not requiring payment at the time of the reservation.

The Courtyard has a very nice gathering area near the lobby that is perfect for our Casual Gathering on Friday night, October 18, 8:00 PM to whenever. The Class of '68 also used the Courtyard, and the organizers were pleased with it. We are certain that some classmates will want to gather at the Courtyard after the Main Eventfor extra socializing.

On Saturday morning at 10:00 we will have a Ceremony of Remembrance that will include two segments. The first segment will honor our Fallen Eagles,  those classmates who are no longer with us. We have the names of about 90 classmates who have passed away, but we know that there must be many more deaths that we don’t know about. The second segment will include sharing of memories about RHS, Richardson, and the days of our youth. Bob Fleming is managing the Ceremony of Remembrance event, which will also be at the Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center.

Below is a link for a short video of the Davidson-Gundy Alumni Center during preparations for the RHS 1968 50th Reunion. Note that the video was made in daytime with the lights on full blast, and that decorations are sparse and incomplete. We'll have lots of decorations and splashes of purple and gold lighting on the walls.

We have also arranged for a School Tour of good ol' RHS on Friday afternoon at 4:30. A lot has changed in 50 years, and it's all for the good!
