Dear Classmates,

As we are all aware, we are not as far out of the woods with COVID-19 as we had hoped. 

Despite our vaccinations, there has been a continuing rise in cases due to the highly contagious Delta Variant. 

In light of this information, and the fact that most of us will not be eligible for a booster shot before September 25th, we have voted to postpone our Reunion Gala celebration to 

Saturday, May 21, 2022. 

We have heard from many of you who have already cancelled, or who have expressed trepidation about the large gathering. We get it. 
We realize that this is extremely disappointing and may cause some of you to change travel and family plans. We’re sorry.

Our primary concern has always been the health and safety of our fellow classmates. 

We have updated this website with a link to the Marriott to rebook your reservation. We have kept the same low room price. Click on 50+ Reunion Registration, then scroll down to Lodging.
See you in May!

Stay well,

Your 50+ Reunion Committee

Saturday Night Gala:

We'd love for you to bring memorabilia from “back in the day” for the Memory Lane display and Photo Op Areas.
Please email a brief description of your objects to: Louis Pope  louismpope@aol.com.

The Gala evening will include dinner, a DJ, and dancing.

Plus, a fantastic film depicting images from our shared past.
You will relive long lost memories. 
You may be in it! 
You do not want to miss it!!

We have been planning for almost 3 years to make this a night to remember, and a great chance to reconnect and reminisce with your WJ classmates. 

Please share this information with anyone else that you would like to celebrate with us. 

Gala ticket prices are:
