The Civic Memorial High School 50's & 60's Plus 1970 Reunion Experience IV
In 2000, the Civic Memorial Class of 1965 started planning for their 35th reunion. During the planning sessions discussions turned to the number of classmates with spouses, and/ or siblings in classes surrounding us, and also the number of people who attended Civic Memorial in the 50's & 60's yet did not graduate from CM due to the military, change of schools, or starting a family. The idea for the 50's & 60's Civic Memorial Reunion Experience was born. With humble beginnings in 2000, the Reunion Experience III held in 2010 saw over 190 attending, and contributing to the 3rd fund raiser/reunion that has donated over $6000.00 total to the Civic Memorial general fund.
On October 23, 2015 The Civic Memorial Reunion Experience IV will be held, starting on that Friday night with a mixer to be held at the Airport Bowl in Bethalto at 7pm.
On Saturday morning Oct. 24th a golf outing will be held at Spencer T Olin at 9am; entry fee is $25.00 per person for 9 holes with a cart. Classmates and spouses welcome!
On Saturday night, October 24th the dinner/dance will be held at Julia's Banquet Center in East Alton starting at 5pm till 6pm to mix and mingle, with the buffet dinner starting at 6pm. The cost is $30.00 per person in advance, and $35.00 per person at the door. For the dance only (no dinner) it is $10.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door. A class pictures will be taken at 7pm at $15.00 per picture, (cash that night) and music is provided by Big Time Entertainment, Rob Simmons DJ.
This year Sunday has been left open for each class to "do their own thing." The class of 1965 will be having a breakfast at the Golden Corral at 9am, Sunday, October 25th; each person pays as he/she attends, no money collected in advance.
This event was formulated to make everyone who has ever graced the halls of Civic Memorial High School during the 50's & 60's feel welcome, and we have had over the last 15 years several "first timers." This year we have added the class of 1970 to the mix, and plan on adding a year in the "70's" each time the event is held in the future.
