Gathering This Week!

Stop the Presses! Searching for a less noisy yet public gathering place, we’ve scheduled a get-together at the Don Tequila Mexican Grill in Upper Arlington at 3140 Kingsdale Center, 43221 (next to First Watch). And it’s this week— Friday October 29 arriving between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m., staying until ??

Optional drinks, optional food, mandatory fun.

If you’ve been to our recent gatherings this summer, you’ll know that we’ve had a fine turn-out and lots of enjoyment catching up with the greatest bunch ever… so all of us, cancel your other engagements (grab the next flight, some of us?) and come say hello. What could be better? We hope to see you Friday!

Save the Date for the 55th!

Hello classmates!

It was encouraging to have received all the positive responses from my email suggesting a Grand Reunion for next summer’s 55-year anniversary of our graduation. Thank you to all those who were able to reply so quickly! So…

Save the Date—I have now reserved the Griggs Boathouse on the Scioto River (just south of the Fishinger Road bridge) for July 9, 2022, from 5:00 p.m.–11:00 p.m. It’s a great combination indoor/outdoor facility.

If you have not already, please check your calendar and email me (if possible in the next couple days) Tracie McGarity with your ability to attend and include an estimated number in your party. As mentioned earlier, our thoughts are to keep it on the casual side and to include as many of our classmates (and family) as possible. Any ideas are welcome… Thank you!

Dance in November, NYC

Want to see an Eagle soar? If you’re ready to visit New York City in November, come see my dance concert! Titled “POP: Then until Now: Vicki Angel, Eric Barsness, & Carol Clements in Concert,” the Gibney Dance Studio describes it, “Then until Now offers a look at a forty-year choreographic span, with past and present juxtaposed in the bodies of three “mature” dancers. Angel, Barsness, and Clements resurrect solos from the 1980s and make new dances, too. A surprise comic trio is the finale. Out with the new and in with the old!”

Tickets are (a quite reasonable!) $15 – $20; read the specifics on the Gibney Dance website »

A few classmates are already planning to attend. You know, a 71-year-old classmate can still perform!

All the best, Vicki
