I might be interested in attending the reunion, but I need some info not included on the web site, such as how much will this reunion cost me? Include all costs and not just the event price. The cost of souvenir photos and other keepsakes need to be mentioned as well. Thanks!

This will be my first reunion and it should be fun connecting with old classmates. I'll be bringing my sweetie Karen, and her being a 1975 Heights graduate; she knows many of the same people. Hopefully the classmates I would like to see most from my Cleveland Heights neighborhood (Revere, Blance, Bainbridge, Berkely, Bendemer, Severn etc...) will be attending.

 Hope to make the 50th.  Having the reunion in the summer is much better.

I'm not messaging...I'm pleading. OK, perhaps that might be a little dramatic. I'm trying to find a ride from somewhere around Harrisburg PA to the environs of Cleveland for the reunion weekend. Travel either Friday or Saturday would be great and I could meet pretty much anywhere. I'm trying to make a double reunion out of our illustrious occasion with a few friends from Miami U and short
of flying from Harrisburg to Philadelphia to Cleveland (seriously?) or just turning my long suffering husband into a glorified chauffeur, I thought I might find a ride-share. I'll be flying back to Tampa from Columbus, so one-way would be perfect. I think this is a crazy idea and a lot to ask of anyone (putting up with me for a bunch of hours) but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Looking forward to the whole shebang and a big thanks to all of the organizers.

I am sorry to be missing the reunion (would have been my first), as we have a family trip planned (Europe) during that time.  Have lots of fun, take a lot of pictures and share on line (so I can enjoy vicariously :-)  and see you in 2018 or 2023.  PS I would love to assist in any way i could be helpful planning the next gathering.  Thank you to all who are putting this together this time.

Maybe I will run into some of you at the DooWops Cain Park concert in August? that's a Reunion of sorts, right?

Mary, I enjoyed your post. Being on the committee I sometimes wonder why people don't want to come to a reunion. I know some do not have pleasant memories of high school or no memories at all. Others feel they see and talk to who they want.

I think I 'm involved and looking forward to going because:

1) Everyone shows up older, but we all feel a  little younger at the end of the night.

2) High school memories are best with those you lived them with.

3) I can talk with people I didn't know in high school and learn about what they have done in the last 40 years.

3) Because I can


See you there

Alas, I must report that I will not attend the reunion tonight.  I cracked my ribs on a construction site yesterday in New York state.  It is a very crucial point in the project anyway, so best I stay close, pain or no pain.  Sorry ot miss you all!  Have a good time!

yes, I know the photo is upside down!  too much going on to rotate!

To the CHHS Organizing Committee

THANK YOU for putting together such a wonderful and meaningful experience!!!

Heights played such an important part in our lives, our development as people, of the lifelong frindships that we've made.

Even though we may have gone on different paths, our lives reconnected last night.

We met again at a mile-marker of 40 years, and got a chance to appreciate better where we are, what we have accomplished ... and rekindle memories and feelings about with who, and how we became what we are today.

Thank you again for providing this experience ...

Thank you to everyone who woke up early on Sunday to attend our Brunch. So many classmates attended. It was a fabulous morning. Special thanks to Dan Marmorstein and his lovely wife Linda who woke up extra early and flew in from Florida.  Safe travels to everyone going home. Be well, stay in touch and stay healthy.....
