50th Bay High School Class Reunion
Plans are underway for the upcoming reunion. This is the BIG 5-0 event - so hopefully everyone will make the effort to attend! MANY more details will be forthcoming, but for now - mark the dates on your 2019 calendars! Questions should be sent to us at email@example.com.
IF you think you might be able to attend - we are taking a quick poll - just to get an idea of the count. This is not binding! Please check this link and give us your thoughts. It is VERY quick!
(We will keep this active throughout June 2018.)
Friday evening - July 26, 2019 - class gathering at the home of Karen Hansen Dade on Bradley Rd. in Bay.
Saturday evening - July 27, 2019 - Fuller House* located by the old Huntington Playhouse (see info below on the Fuller House)
Sunday brunch - July 28, 2019 - class gathering at the home of Linda Glaesel Kazen off Bradley Rd in Westlake.
* There is no specific website for the Fuller House - but it’s coordinated by Bay Arts and that organization has pictures of events (mainly weddings) held at the Fuller House - so you can get an idea of what it looks like by going here: http://www.bayarts.net/rent/images.html
We have reserved a block of 30 rooms at the DoubleTree by Hilton (Cleveland-Westlake) for the time of our reunion. We have the rooms for Friday, July 26, 2019 and Saturday, July 27, 2019. You can request one or both nights. There are both king size rooms and rooms with 2 double beds. Breakfast is included with this reservation (get a coupon at check-in). The rooms are $99/night (plus taxes).
Call the hotel directly at 440-871-6000 to reserve your rooms. Mention that you are part of the Bay HS Class of '69. (What a unique name!)
The hotel is located at 1100 Crocker Rd., Westlake
These rooms and this special rate is available through June 26, 2019.
If you want to use a different hotel that is totally fine! We did check around other hotels in this area and found this price to be the best offered. Nearby there is a Holiday Inn Express, a Hyatt Place, a and a Red Roof Inn. Others are available if you want to go a little farther out. We choose the Double Tree because of price, location, the rooms were nice, and we thought the lobby area/pool would be very nice for classmates just wanting to hang out and visit.
HELP WITH THE REUNION PLANNING
If you are willing to help with the planning of the reunion - please let us know! There are many ways to help:
