Class Of 1968
ANNOUNCEMENTS

+++UPDATE AUGUST 8, 2018+++

Our venue for Saturday night 22 September at  McCormick and Schmicks, has a table/seating limit  per our contract and we have met the capacity for the space allowed us.  You can no longer purchase a ticket for Saturday night 's dinner unfortunately.  Only paid guests with the supplied photo name tags will be served dinner from our buffet menu. However, keep in mind this is a restaurant with public space at the bar and other tables as well. Should you choose to dine as a patron and then join the classmates once the buffet  has been served there will be plenty of time to do so.  We have the reserved space until  midnight. 

The hotel room block at the Gaylord remains open but will shut down on 23 August per our contract with them. 

With only a few weeks to go,  the committee wishes to thank all of you who plan to attend, have offered expertise, talent, donations of every sort  and overall enthusiasm for this milestone event in our lives. Please do not hesitate to reach out for any concerns if you missed the deadline. 

Dear Crossland Classmates,

***Updated June 11, 2018:  Our reunion registration response has been phenomenal so far!!!   We are seeing names we haven't heard from in decades!!!  There is a limit to the number of tickets we can sell for Saturday night due to space restrictions, so, signup soon!!!  Further updates about the weekend activities are locations are below***

As our 50th CHS Class Reunion approaches, the web page below will keep you informed of the weekend activities, allow hotel room bookings and credit card payment options.  Ticket price for dinner on Saturday, September 22, 2018 will be $80.00 per person.  In addition, you will find airport and transportation information and a donation page.
