50th Reunion - Activities
Saturday, September 22, 2018

Social and Dinner at the Crowne Plaza

Our 50th Reunion is being held at the Crown Plaza Hotel and Event Center.  Believe it or not, we were here for our 20th Reunion when it was known as the Scanticon!  It seems like half a lifetime ago, and literally, it almost was!

Wayzata and the area have grown up a lot since we graduated and for venues suitable for a reunion, we find ourselves competing with weddings and booking a year in advance.  So the Crown Plaza offered a great space for our reunion with food, fun, lodging (for those that need it) and it's close to our Wayzata home base.  In fact, it is just short trip down the road from the Friday gathering at French Park.

The last couple reunions have featured dinner cruises on Lake Minnetonka and for the 50th, we are reverting back to the more traditional venue where we can have a great place to socialize, have dinner and a program, music, memorabilia and etc.  This will allow our classmates to mingle and wander without worrying about "missing the boat"!  No lifejackets required!

We have also made arrangements for special rates to book a room at the hotel for out of town travelers and those that want to stay as long as they want and not have to worry about driving home!  Ask for the WHS Class of 1968 Block of Rooms - the rate is $99 guaranteed and the hotel has great amenities for fitness, swimming, etc.  Reservations are available at this rate until Sept 8th.

We are currently working on dinner menus and trying to get a headcount to help us figure out what it will cost per person to cover the expenses.  We estimate roughly $75 per person.  Please watch for a mailing/emailing that asks you for some updates and an idea of who is coming and how many are bringing "significant others" to the event.  Dinner Menu

This event is open to all of our classmates that grew up with us and attended any of the grades along the way.  While there were 269 that received diplomas from Wayzata in 1968, we estimate that there could be 400-500 classmates that were only with us part of the time but still have friendships and fond memories of our trip through the years at Wayzata and St. Barts.  We have posted names of over 300 classmates that consider themselves to be part of our class and encourage you to reach out to them and others that should be seeing this information.

Over the past 50 years, our reunions started with formal dress, suit and tie.  Each reunion since the 20th has gotten more casual, more fun, more relaxed.  This event will continue that trend and all are invited to be comfortable and come for fun!  We've had a lifetime since high school and there is much to talk about, much to share and we all have the same years at Wayzata in common.  Hope that you will join us for the fabulous 50th!
