50th Reunion Details

 

The reunion committee has been working for the past 12 months planning our 50th reunion weekend.  To keep overall costs down, many of the events will be offered on an optional, pay-as-you-go basis.  Online registration is now open at a cost of $33 per person (if you pay by credit card), or $30 per person (if you pay by check, electronic funds transfer, or debit card).  If you plan to pay by electronic funds transfer or debit card, you'll need to download these instructions for using Pop Money

If you want to bypass online registration, you can also download our Registration Form, complete the application, and mail the form along with your payment to Lauren English, P.O. Box 1672, Pottsboro, TX 75076.

Orders are also being taken for a special 50th Reunion Souvenir Glass.  This blue drinking glass with event inscription is being sold for $5 per glass.  You may place your order along with your reunion registration or visit our 50th Reunion Souvenir Glass order page and place your order separately.  Payment must be received by Monday, Oct. 7, and glasses may be picked up at the reunion.  A limited supply of glasses will be available for sale at the reunion.
