Jeff LeCrone will be heading the Golf tournament again.
Adam will make the Memorial plaques again.

The committee decided not to have the band play this time, so people can talk easily and not have to leave the room, and/or leave the party.
It was discussed to keep monies separate, as both clases have money left over from their last reunions. We will probably use the same sign up forms on-line, but somehow have it split when the different classes sign up, so as the money will go into the appropriate accounts.
Carrie and Valerie will check into Friday nite venue's. Mariann will check into the Embassy for the Saturday nite party.

A tour of the facility was given by Candie Westbrook. This place is amazing! The price is cheap, there are LOTS of things we can utilize here - even if you don't rent a room, because we'd have the reunion there - IF we have the reunion there, that is! An Olympic size pool, huge weight room, regulation size backeball court, and LOTS more. The room rates are very good too: $89.00 queen size room if you update to a suite, it's $40.00 more and there is a roll out couch bed that they put a real size mattress on. For those that may be getting a room, you are given a free breakfast.
They also have a tie to Cobblestone Golf Course. Altho it's a 9 hole course, we would be able to play it again to make it 18-hole. Registration to play would be conducted by them.

The big decision of the evening was to change the location of Saturday nite's party. Everyone was in agreement, that while the Postal Center had a lot of great perks, it is difficult to gain easy access to the building, in that, going thru a check in gate keeper could prove to be time consuming.

Carrie bought a NHS 1980 Alumni return address stamp to use on all the envelopes – she had 250 envelopes, but willl need more. Carrie can pick those up. The labels are done, Renee’s gonna double check my work and then Carrie will run them.
Accounting:Jackie handed out the account receivable pages.
Bob Morris went w/ Jackie and Carrie to the Embassy last Wednesday. He came up w/ a great idea to split the huge room by 1/3 so the band can be as loud as they want but not disturb the people in the adjoining room(s). This way, he/we may not need to pay $500.00 for the extra PA stuff he would need. If he does, then the committee agreed that it would pay the $500.00 needed for the equipment. Bob also told me that they get $500.00 per gig. The committee also agreed to pay that, seeing as how we’re asking Bob and Dave to “work” their reunion and Nate and Chris aren’t even in our class but are still “working” for us. <>
Belinda made a list of all of or lost classmates and it was divided among us. The plan is to borrow their senior pic's (or whatever we can get) from their families, (8 X 10), get it color copied, return the pic to their families, and we’ll make a memorial tribute to them. She will email the list to us separately. Renee may also want to put those pics on her Power Point presentation?
