Who else but the class of 77 would turn a one night event into a three day weekend? Thank you to Mr. Lee for the Dickinson tour, Terry Reed for the Skyline tour, Billy Caldwell and Gary Allegretto for pulling together the Pre-party on Friday, Dave Kelly for the golf outing,
the Four Points Sheraton for putting up with our nonsense,
and the folks that pulled together the brunch at Deerpark.
Thank you to Tony Goland for sponsoring the Photo Booth
so we have all these uninhibited photos of us!
Many thanks to the folk that donated tickets or money to
help other classmates attend. We had a turnout of over 150 and
other classes can't imagine how we pull it off!
There are photos posted under the "View-Post Photos"
in the album for the 40th Reunion.
Also, if you had fun at the 40th, but didn't get to visit with everyone,
another gathering is in the works.
In 2019 we will be turning 60!
If you would like to turn a corner into a new decade
with folks who turned the corner into adulthood,
start planing on a (possible) fall gathering in 2019 to celebrate!
All the reunion information and links are below, including some very fun promotional videos.
But we have a BIG announcement!
PRE-PARTY ! !
The Friday night before the reunion, we will be kicking off the weekend with a night of music and mayhem.
Gary Allegretto and his all star band will be performing for us at
Game Changers is located at 1430 Pulaski Hwy in Bear DE. (It is across the street from the new Wilmington College Sports campus, and in front of Rockwood Apts on Route 40.)
GAME CHANGERS SPORTS BAR
& SEAFOOD RESTAURANT.
Game Changers is owned by our very own classmate,
That's right, I called him "Billy". He will always be "Billy" to us.
NO COVER CHARGE! SPREAD THE WORD!
Bring your family and friends for a great night out.

There is a block of rooms at the Four Points Sheraton on 273 and Old Baltimore Pike.
There are only 5 rooms left of the block, so we strongly suggest that if you are in-town or out-of-town, you call them and book your room now. UPDATE: The block has sold out. If you booked a room and for whatever reason are not going to use that room, please call the hotel and un-book it now. Other classmates have been trying to get into the block, but no more rooms are available. So please, if you are not going to use your room, unbook it so someone else can get in at this great rate! The rooms run $129 for the night of the event. The Sheraton will be running a shuttle FROM the hotel to Clayton Hall and back again at the end of the night. (Seats are limited, so you may want to UBER or LYFT on your own.) If you are internet savvy, you can check out the hotel here.
But to get the block rate for the reunion,
you will have to call and talk to a human:
you can call 302-266-6600
Ask for the block reservation for JDHS High School reunion.
Just a note: It is NASCAR weekend in DOVER and hotel rooms sell out or rates go up as far north as the PA line. So, if you haven't booked your room it is recommended you call the FOUR POINTS SHERATON.
So if you are wanting to join in the "after-party", we will be at the Four Points Sheraton, lobby bar closes at 1:00 am. Lobby lounge closes when we say it closes! BAM!
We had another successful meeting!
But the reunion is in progress, and we have so many FABULOUS ideas in store.
The ticket price has been decided.
$65.00 will get you DINNER at the Fabulous Clayton Hall at the UD Pencader Campus (which is now the Honors University Campus)
That ticket price get you .. . US! We are fabulous at that price, and a Dinner (menu to be determined), and 2 free drink tickets. (after that it is a cash bar, so the liver patients are not funding the drinkers . . .that's fair!).
This is the first meeting of
YOUR reunion committee.
Save the date!
September 30, 2017
Clayton Hall, UD Pencader Complex
More information forthcoming.
Hotel rooms will be blocked, and the times & ticket prices are in the works!
