6 days left to register for 50th Reunion
From Eric Foreman:
I will be leading 44 lucky people to Banff Canada for 6 days of skiing! December 27th thru Jan 3rd. If any of you Horlick High Ski Club members of 1969 wanna come, let me know fast! $1989.00! includes air fare from Tampa, hotel, and all transportation. Going fast, we just announced the trip last week!
CAN YOU HELP?
Greetings from your former archenemy - Park High - and now with envy for what your reunion champion, Leeann, and your committee has been able to do in getting your classmates registered for our reunion dinner on Saturday!! What she and you have done truly qualifies as the Herculean.
Given our approaching July 1 deadline, and the number of our registered Park classmates being well behind yours, I'm hoping (pleading :)) that you could contact any of your former Park buds who simply may not know about our reunion and/or have yet to register - and kind of smack them around a little, do some arm twisting, lay some guilt on them, send them a Youtube of that Seals and Crofts classic - "We may never pass this way again" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3mp4dkm1fQ - REALLY - anything you can do to help nudge these dear and precious old farts into joining us would be great and deeply appreciated.
Thanks, in advance, and hoping that these past 50 years have been reasonably good to all of you, and so looking forward to seeing all of you in August!

GOLF OUTING (Still Space Available)
Park High School has generously offered any interested golfers to join their golf outing scheduled for Friday, August 2, 10am at Johnson Park. (We did not have an organized outing of our own, although several classmates are playing at JP at 9:30.) So this combined outing is a great option!
The cost is $37, with a discounted price of $35 if paying by check. This includes 18 holes w/ cart. You may register as a foursome, or individually and be placed in a foursome.
If you are interested in golf, please let me know and I will add you as a guest to the Park website and you can register there.
LIGHTHOUSE TOUR (Still Space Available)
Private Lighthouse Tour has just been added to our optional events! If you have already registered for the reunion and are interested in adding this, you can add this to your previous registration. SPACE IS LIMITED TO 15 PEOPLE. We will have the option of adding another tour at 4 PM if this tour fills. Grab your spot today if you are interested! The Reunion page has details regarding what to expect, what to wear, etc.
TENNIS, ANYONE? (Still Space Available)
Doubles tennis for the first 16 to register. Ali Cordova Riccio has generously offered to provide balls, water, and courts at Meadowbrook Country Club, immediately following the school tour at Horlick. (Estimated start time for tennis, 11:00am.)
Cocktails or lunch available for cash.
Contact Ali directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Thank you, Ali, for organizing such a fun event!
CLASS MEMORIAL UPDATE
It has been overwhelming to see the donations pour in for the Class Memorial Tree and Bench. You have been so generous! We are deeply grateful for the support this project has received. So many of our closest friends have gone before us, and remembering and honoring them has been a group effort.
Donations are now closed. The bench has been ordered, and should be placed by mid-July. The tree and perennials have been selected and will be planted by mid-June.
We hope many of you will have the opportunity to visit in August.
Special thanks to Mona Marino for spearheading this project, contributing endless hours of research and meetings.
