Celebrating 50 Years! 1969 – 2019

GET BACK – TO WHERE YOU ONCE BELONGED!!

Posted by mcnary69 on August 17, 2018

IT’S OFFICIAL!!  THIS IS THE THEME OF OUR REUNION…. 

Thanks to everyone who filled out the survey or made suggestions on Facebook for a theme. Now the real work begins as we finalize catering, decorations, music, and plans for just having a GREAT time that will be very affordable, relaxing and as much fun as you want to have!!

The next step is for the Reunion Committee to finalize the Registration Form and prices for the events.  We will also be sending out the link for the Ride Share option (for RIDERS and DRIVERS). Updates will continue to be posted as we keep everyone informed on progress of all the plans, etc.

Again, here’s what is planned so far!!

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13
Thanks once again to the generosity of our classmate Steve Johnson, we will be gathering  at the Grand Hotel for an informal meet and greet to get things rolling. This will be a very informal event with a no host bar and finger food. It will be very affordable and a good way to get the weekend started!

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 14
A new and unique venue for our Saturday evening gathering will be the Scenic Valley Winery on River Road in Gervais. This is a family owned vineyard and winery right in McNary’s back yard! The reunion members who visited there were impressed with the venue in terms of its location, size, rustic quality, flexible set up as well as the family who own it. We will have a catered meal (more info coming on that!!) and the evening will be a walk down memory lane as well as an opportunity to get caught up with the lives of our fellow classmates while listening to the music we loved in high school. Again, we are working to keep all costs within reason and still have a tasty, enjoyable meal together with plenty of opportunity to dance, etc. 

There is also discussion of having one or more events on Saturday morning and/or afternoon, depending on interested parties.  Some ideas have been trips to the Oregon Coast or local wineries, hikes in various locations, with other ideas still being generated! Feel free to share your ideas… either responding below or on our Facebook page. 

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 15
For our last event of the weekend, we have reserved a beautiful picnic spot at the South Falls of Silver Creek Falls. Folks who wish can hike the trails or just relax and visit. It is a short distance from Salem and the cost to get into the Park is $5 per vehicle, so we are hoping folks will consider the Ride Share option!. Will be a cookout with more details to come!!

Check back often for new updates, which will be posted here and on our Facebook page McNary Class of ’69

Now that our dates are set… make your travel plans.

Hope to see everyone next year!
