Dear DHS Class of 1970 Classmates:
Your Class Reunion Committee met this afternoon and agreed to move forward with our plans to hold our 50 year reunion on the weekend of August 27 -28-29!
By the time of the event ALL of us should have had the opportunity to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus and we are hopeful that the country will be in a full recovery mode from the pandemic. We are optimistic that we will be able to hold a safe gathering and that as many of you as are able might be able to join us for this momentous event! We highly encourage you to be fully vaccinated in advance of attending the reunion, however if you choose not to do so, you must wear a mask. This event is entirely voluntary and your participation is at your discretion. By previously or currently registering for the event, attendees agree that they will be fully vaccinated or will wear a mask and assume the risk related to any illness or injury suffered as the result of attending the event. The hotel will take every precaution available to ensure a safe and fun event! We just want everyone attending to feel safe and comfortable!
We are still planning a very INFORMAL gathering both on Friday evening, at the Slyce Pizza restaurant in Highwood and then Saturday evening at the Marriott Suites Hotel in Deerfield. The Friday evening event at Slyce will be at a cost of $10 which will go toward taking care of the Slyce staff. Food and beverages will be on a cash or credit card basis. There is NO registration required to attend the event at Slyce.
We are going to be space limited at the Marriott to 160 attendees, so if you are interested in attending, NOW would be the time to get your registration in. A number of you have already made your reservations. There is no need for you to do anything at this point. Your reservation is secured! You can register directly on the website at www.dhs1970.com or by sending a check for $100 per person to our class Treasurer, Wayne Spath, 19 Clover Ln., Lake Bluff, IL 60044. The website collects a $7 admin fee so if you wish to avoid that charge, you can just send a check directly to Wayne. The committee is very much looking forward to welcoming our class back to Deerfield and we hope this can be a weekend of fun, re-connecting, and renewing old friendships!
The deadline for registering for the event is August 1st! We have a hard limit of 160
attendees so if you want to ensure that you can attend, please make your reservations NOW! No tickets will be available at the event.
