The 45-year reunion was held on October 2nd and 3rd, 2009 in Ontario and Upland, California. Several classmates said this was the best reunion yet and are looking forward to attending the 50-year reunion. Everyone is so thankful and excited that we made it another five years and to see so many of our friends once again.
The Friday night get-together was held at the host hotel, Best Western Inn Suits, on Shelby St. in Ontario from 7:00 PM to Midnight. It was in this informal setting that 36 of our classmates with an additional 13 spouses and dates joined in visiting, catching up, and reminiscing.
Helpful in bringing the past to the present was the slide show presentation that continued throughout the night. The slideshow contained photos from our 1964 school yearbook, past reunions, and then and now photos of several of our classmates. Many of us have found that attending the Friday night get-together helps in getting a jumpstart and breaks the ice in preparation for our Saturday night reunion event.
The big event on Saturday night was held at the Upland Hills Country Club on 16th Street near Campus in Upland from 6:00 PM to midnight. This was in a beautiful setting with where 80 of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner, fun dancing to great music from our high school era, and some terrific door prizes.
Door prizes included some Upland teddy bears, T-shirts, an "Upland Pride" Citrus Label and other Upland memorabilia, a gift basket from Maui, $100 Visa gift card, an astrology reading worth $110, a beautiful handmade quilt, and 5 nights in a condo on the Hawaiian island of Maui.
There are a few copies of the reunion book and DVD. If interested in receiving a copy of one or both of these items, please contact us.
