PRAHS ALL-CLASS REUNION
2015 - 6:00 pm
2015 All School Reunion August 13-16!!!
Hey, all! Questions: Is there/Do we want to have an "organized" initial get-together early on during this? Also, re: parade & floatilla?? Let's discuss here! I'm not "organizing" anything(!), but do we want to discuss, suggest, maybe figure out if our class wants a set gathering, etc, & we can spread the word. Feedback in the Messages portion here?! (May set up class page at Facebook again if beneficial) Have RSVP enabled here so we know who's planning on coming (if they indicate here!). Thanks!
(FYI, per Lefty, prhsreunion.com/Reunion organizer: He's looking for: Chairperson for All School Reunion activities held at the Museum, and volunteers to chair the parade and floatilla.)
