Wa-Hi Class of 1959 - 65th Reunion
September 17, 18, & 19, 2024

 

On September 18, 2023 fifteen members of our Wa-Hi Class of 1959 met in the boardroom of the Walla Walla Public Schools to discuss our upcoming 65th class reunion.  Above are the dates we have decided to come together once again and celebrate life and our long friendships with classmates.  We have chosen mid week like our last reunion as hotels/motels are less expensive than on weekends, less traffic, and we presume we all are retired from our working jobs.  

Our agenda will be very similar to our last reunion with a casual evening on Tuesday at the Big House, formerly the Brew Pub; Wednesday we will have a cocktail hour at the Walla Walla Country Club with dinner, visiting, etc.  to follow.  We have added one more day - Thursday - to gather at the VFW Building on Rose street from 10 - 2 for a few more hours of visiting and a nice catered luncheon.  We will be sending out a letter to everyone when we finalize more details, costs, etc., along with information of hotels, motels, restaurants, etc.

As time gets closer, if there is interest in other activities such as golf, wine touring, touring Wa-Hi which has recently been updated, or any other ideas you might have, we are open for suggestions. 

Presently we have a committee working on updating our master address, telephone, e-mail, etc. list, along with updating - sadly - our deceased class members list.  Please be helpful if you are called by our ladies, as we really try to reach as many of our classmates as we can. 

We plan to send a letter by e-mail to everyone as soon as possible, and mail to those who do not have e-mail addresses.


Take care,
The Reunion Committee
