UPDATED!!! MHS Class of 1976 Reunion — July 15/16, 2006

Some changes from my earlier post — I believe that what follows is pretty much final, though.

Two events are planned for the Mariner High School Class of 1976 reunion. These events are planned for July 15-16, 2006 and are described below. My “spies” tell me that Dave Cernich is also planning some sort of Friday evening event for alumni only, but I haven’t heard officially yet. If I can get ahold of Dave, and get some details, I’ll post them here as well.
A word about scheduling: I know this won’t work for everyone, but I’m not sure it’s possible to find a date that does. And lacking some central authority, decisions have to be made….

  • Saturday, July 15. 2 p.m. – ?? There will be an adult (alumni, spouses, significant others, etc) get-together at the Diamond Knot Brewery in scenic downtown Mukilteo. 621 Front Street, Mukilteo, to be precise. I’ve linked to a map here. If you are map-challenged, or just like to talk to people on the phone, you can also call them at (425) 355-4488.
  • Sunday, July 16. 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. or later. Family picnic at Martha Laone of the shelters at Martha Lake Parkke Park just off of 164th near the I-5 exit. A Google Map link is provided here. There is an outdoor shelter that we have reserved, which is suitable for 50 people. Families are welcome. We are having Big Bam’s BBQ cater the event, and are asking for each family that plans on attending to chip in $20. Otherwise, Sharon, Ozie and I will have a LOT of BBQ to eat, and I don’t know about them, but my girlish figure can’t handle it…
  • Sharon was also working on a list of hotels, for those of you travelling from out of town (Sharon herself is flying up from Miami, so probably has the “furthest travelled to get here” prize sewed up, unless Dave Austin (London, England) or John Webber (Germany, last I heard from him) manage to make it. Though Zoe Leonard has indicated she’s planning on coming up from Arizona, so we’ve got some people who are willing to travel a long way to see you!

To date, I have heard from close to 40 people, between the Frappr map and the Classmates site, who are interested in the reunion. Only a few of you have actually let us know whether you plan on attending — so we are hoping that by setting a date we can get some confirmations.

Please, if you have any intention of coming, let us know so we can (1) plan for you, food-wise; (2) plan for you, reservation-wise; and (3) get your thoughts on what, besides food and your fellow classmates, would be nice to have at the reunion.

You can e-mail me, Sharon or Ozie. Alternatively, you can sign the guest register, or just comment on this blog post!


* “we” is mostly Ozie Greene, Sharon Verg, and myself at this point, though we have had offers of help from Alyce Pendell, Kevin Hayes, and several others (my apologies — I am memory challenged when it comes to names…). At this point, we welcome any help anyone wants to provide, but we’ve been best able to accept help from those who simply pick a task and say “I can do this!” — that’s what happens when no one’s really in charge!
