Description

GREETINGS MHS OILERS CLASS OF 1968!

2018 is here--it’s hard to believe it's been 50 years since we left Montebello High School. We're a little older but we're hopefully wiser, still young at heart, and ready to meet again! The reunion committee is planning an evening that should give everyone plenty of time to mingle and reminisce with classmates after five decades, enjoy great food and music, and make new memories, including dancing for those so inclined.

REGISTER NOW AT EARLY BIRD PRICE (ENDS JUNE 1)! Your early registration/payment will help the committee with many aspects of planning and will be greatly appreciated—thanks in advance to those who register early! The Early Bird price of $90 will increase to $100 on June 1st and to $110 on September 1st—IF space is still available. Registration will close September 15. No tickets will be sold at the door! Note: If you've indicated your interest in attending on our Facebook event page, or to our e-mail account, or to a phone caller, you have not made a reservation. Reservations require payment and that is done only here on this Eventbrite site.

The reunion committee is working hard to make this the best reunion yet. We are greatly encouraged by the enthusiastic responses we’ve had when contacting classmates—we'll facilitate the event but in the end, it will be the people who will make it a great evening!

WE'RE STILL LOOKING FOR CLASSMATES--50 years of moves and name changes has made it a big challenge to find everyone. If you're in contact with any MHS ‘68 classmates please be sure they're aware of the reunion. Give them this Eventbrite link and/or the contact information below. We don't want anyone to miss out.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU IN OCTOBER!

FAQs

How do I register and pay through Eventbrite?

Eventbrite was selected as the registration mechanism for our reunion because it provides an efficient and secure way to pay by credit card (and eliminate problems with lost checks and other accounting nightmares if registration is done by mail). Registering here should be straightforward. Detailed instructions for those who need them are at the end of this FAQ section.

What's the refund policy?

NO REFUNDS.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. All paid guest names (and number of tickets purchased) will be listed at the registration desk.

Is this a dress-up affair?

Dress up or down to your comfort level, but please, no shorts or flip flops!

Can I skip dinner and just stop by to socialize with attendees?

NO. Anyone who comes to any part of the event must register and pay the full amount. Fees cover more than just the meal. In other words, we're not in high school anymore and it's NOT okay to crash the party!

What do I get for my registration fee?

Registration fees cover costs of appetizers, dinner, dessert, non-alcoholic beverages, venue use and service fees, parking, organizational costs (decorations, Eventbrite processing fees, costs associated with finding/contacting classmates, etc.). There will be a no-host bar.

Will there be other reunion-related activities during the weekend?

We are working on a few things--this is what we're looking at now:

  • We’re working with MHS to organize a student guided tour of the MHS campus on Saturday—we can see what’s the same and what’s different!
  • Some classmates have indicated an interest in visiting their elementary schools on Friday—it could get complicated to organize visits to all the schools but we’ll try to help if we can.
  • Some of you might want to get together for a round of golf with old friends on Saturday or Sunday at the adjacent Montebello Golf Course. If we're able to block some starting times we’ll let you know. The planning committee won't be organizing a tournament or coordinating starting times.
  • No doubt there will be ad hoc trips to see which of our favorite eating and other haunts are still around.
  • Possible mix & mingle no-host reception for those registered for the reunion who are in town Friday evening.

More details to come for these and possibly other activities.
