When and where is the Class of 1968 Reunion going to be held?
Saturday, October 6, 2018 (time to be announced)
Angeles National Golf Club
9401 Foothill Blvd.
Sunland, CA  91040

Why aren’t you holding the Reunion in Burbank?
The Reunion Committee wanted to find a location that would offer a beautiful view as well as a delicious and affordable banquet option. Check out the Angeles National Golf Club website.

From the moment your guests arrive, they will be awe-struck by the magnificent panoramic view of the Angeles National Forest, the pristine golf course and sparkling lake. What better location to celebrate one of the most important milestones of your life than where nature and elegance are combined for serene enjoyment.   Angeles National Golf Club is a gracious host for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, holiday parties, business meetings and more.  The 28,000 square foot clubhouse is the perfect venue for any event. Regardless of the size and complexity of your event, our expert staff will ensure it is extraordinary and truly memorable.  We know your dining experience will be one you and your guests will be talking about for years to come.

How much is it going to cost?
$75 per person. If we were to hold the reunion in Burbank, it would have been much, much more expensive. In 2013, the average ticket price for a class reunion was $75—five years later, we’re still at $75. This includes the cost of a buffet dinner, the rental of the space, tax, tip, and whatever is left over will be used for decorations and other incidentals.

What is going to be on the menu? I’m a vegetarian.
Not to worry. The Reunion Committee has chosen the Santa Maria BBQ buffet dinner which includes: Fresh seasonal fruit buffet, caesar salad, wood-smoked BBQ Tri-Tip Beef, Lemon Caper Chicken, Pasta Primavera, Corn on the Cob, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Steamed Vegetables, Garlic Bread, Fruit Tart and Creme Brulée for dessert. Hopefully, there’s something for everyone!

The buffet menu include many delicious Mexican selections which offer chicken, beef, and carnitas choices. Is this the buffet that we will be purchasing? If so, they also offer a shrimp and/or fish choice for an extra cost. Might not that choice also be offered to us if we pay more than the standard $75 cost? It would be impossible to have some people pay more to have a different selection of food. We will be offering the Santa Fe BBQ buffet which should have plenty of choices for all palates.

I am curious. Are there plans to have a golf outing prior to the reunion either the day before or the morning of the Reunion? We are certainly talking about what else we will can plan in addition to the reunion. Some things we are thinking about are—a meet-up at Bob’s on Friday night (there is a classic car show on Friday nights as well), a golf tournament, a tour of the ‘new’ BHS campus, a picnic on Sunday. Let us know if there are other suggestions!

How do I RSVP?
When we are closer to the reunion date, we’ll send out a round of emails where you can respond. An RSVP form on the website will also be posted closer to the reunion date. In the meantime, check out the link Guest List for 50th Reunion (Tentative).

Where do I send my money? No need to send money now. All we need is for you to let us know if you may be coming.

Will there be an “official” hotel chosen by the Reunion Committee for group discounts?
Stay tuned.

Will there be a memory book? The Reunion Committee will discuss the possibilities of producing a Memory Book for people who are not able to attend or for those who want a reminder of a great evening.

Why should I attend the reunion? I was miserable in high school and besides, I probably won’t remember anyone. The number one reason to attend is to find out that the most popular people now lead ordinary lives. Most people our age are retired and enjoying life, having survived the perils of adulthood. The same people still try to organize, direct, and cheer-lead the group. But by then, the others can drink alcohol so the orchestrated program is more tolerable! Here are 50 reasons to attend.

Hey, I would like to send you a note about what I’ve been doing the last 50 years.
Great! Send all correspondence to “burbankhigh1968@gmail.com” and don’t forget to send a recent photo or two. We’ve now made this easy for you—go to “Contact Us” and you’ll see a link to a Reunion Questionnaire.

I have more questions.
As people ask more questions about the reunion and its arrangements, information will be posted here.
