The SHS Class of 1973 40th year reunion will be Saturday, October 12, 2013. The location will be Rock Springs Farm in Buford, GA for the event. This is a 10 acre outdoor venue with a 2 acre lake, perfect for meeting up with old friends and classmates in a beautiful fall setting. It will be a casual affair, come dressed comfortably. There will be lots of room for games like horseshoes, volleyball, tug of war, throwing frisbees and footballs, etc. A large tent will be set up on site to gather under and for protection from sun (there will be lots of that, we hope) or a light drizzle (none of that).
The site will open at 11 am Saturday morning. The "official" reunion will be from 3pm to 11:00pm that evening. Please come early and enjoy the day, because it only happens once ever 40 years! Dinner will be served starting at 5pm

Well, jump on board for a ride around the lake.
The reunion will be primarily BYOB. Soda, beer and wine will be available on a limited basis (depending on our budget).

Although not preferred, we will accept payment at the door but need to know you will be attending so we can order the right amount of food. We hope you can make it to reminisce, catch-up, and rekindle friendships with your high school classmates. Please save the dates and buy your tickets here as soon as possible.

ATTENTION! WE NEED TO FIND CLASSMATES
SO WE CAN INVITE THEM TO THE REUNION. PLEASE HELP!
At this point, we only have information on about 25% of our class. We need to find our missing classmates! If you know of the whereabouts (email, phone or address) of other classmates, please ask them to give us their contact information by going to this survey link:
Completing this survey will only add you to our guest list and allow us to keep you informed as details crystallize.
In order to get contact information on as many classmates as possible, there will be a contest to win a free ticket to the reunion! For every new name we receive, the person referring that new classmate to the survey site will have their name entered into a drawing for the free ticket. That's right, the more people you refer, the more times your name will be entered in the drawing. So, get busy and start searching!
