Home Away From Home

With the 50th Reunion of my high school graduating class just around the corner now, there's still a lot of things I need to work on to get completed for that event.

I have a place set up where we can gather the night before the reunion now for anyone who wants to come out and kick back a little bit and have a chance to get reacquainted more fully that what we will be able to do in the limited time frame that just the evening of the reunion will afford.

For "The Night Before" I have made arrangements that our class can go to the local chapter of the Moose where they can have food and liquid refreshments and a chance to talk without having to shout every single word to each other. Most of the other places where we could gather tend to have a very loud, very rowdy at times, and packed establishments too whereas this place would afford us a bit of privacy and the ability to hear the conversations at hand.

I'm going to suggest to the others in our group working on the planning of this reunion too about preparing a little booklet to give to each classmate attending as well that would include in it a little bit of information about all our fellow classmates too. Not just a listing by their name but also to include their address, e-mail address if available, date of birth, marital status, anniversary date, children/grandchildren too -if any.

Just a little self-contained address book with a tiny bit of other information about those we knew a long time ago such as where they are today and what their interests might be too.

Just something to keep us in some type of communication, at any rate.

Another thing too is something we didn't think of before but probably should have is information about places for people from out-of-town to stay -motels and such -in the area.

I've got a little listing done up now about those things and plan to send that out too in the near future. One place I knew about but didn't think of it until talking to one of our classmates who resides in Florida now and that is this bed and breakfast that is just about 4 miles from my house and I'm really impressed with this place. The lady who has this place graduated three years behind our class, her sister was a year behind us and one brother was a year ahead of us so people from our class would no doubt remember her but probably have no idea about this place since she just got it all completed within the past 2-3 years now.

But I think it is so beautiful I just have to share the website here and you tell me what you think about this place too!


Take a peek at the pictures of this B&B and tell me you wouldn't like to spend a relaxing weekend there!

You seem to work tirelessly on many social activities; the reunion will benefit from your energy and great ideas.

The B & B is charming and attractive and sounds like it is in a great location, near enough to many places of interest. I hope the classmates fill up the B & B the weekend of the reunion.
