*For as many people as are able to make it, we will meet at Walt’s Pub in the Boiler Room on Friday evening at 6:00PM for dinner. Each person/couple should order and pay for their own food and beverages, no group bill. After dinner folks can mingle and reconnect. See https://WaltsPub.com on the web for more information.
*Saturday morning around 10:00 Ti Jones will be leading a bike ride starting at the WL Athletic Complex at the corner of Salisbury and Cumberland (meet near the Salisbury entrance). We are still looking for someone to lead a walking tour as well for those who don’t have/bring bicycles. There are a number of paved trails in the area for all to enjoy.
*Come tour WLHS at 2:00PM on Saturday! We will see many new and exciting things, as well as some familiar places within the school. Meet at the main entrance facing Grant Street.
*The dinner buffet at Bruno’s at 6:00PM Saturday will feature the signature Bruno’s menu items you’ll remember from years past. It should be an entertaining and relaxed time to reconnect with folks, some we haven’t seen for decades.
*For those who are interested we have the back shelter house at Happy Hollow Park reserved for Sunday from 11AM-3PM. Bring your hiking boots and a picnic lunch and work off those calories from Friday and Saturday evenings. Explore the trails you might have used as a kid.
After some searching for lodging options, it was found it would be better for folks to go to https://www.homeofpurdue.com/ for lodging options.
$50 per person will cover the Bruno’s buffet and non-alcoholic beverages, plus tips and other expenses such as park shelter rental, name tags, etc. Any money left over will be donated to the WLHS Alumni Association.
When details are worked out, we will email out a link for classmates to be able to leave memories on a document that we can all read.
Please RSVP by August 1, 2022. Checks should be made out to Steve Fields (who had graciously agreed to cover deposits) and mailed to George Bittles at 1327 W 600 N, West Lafayette, IN, 47906. Venmo @George-Bittles or PayPal @gbittles are two other options to pay.
PS – if you have contact with any classmates who you think might not have heard about the reunion, please contact George, Steve Fields, Jan Pearlman Cortner, Ti Jones, or Jane Stroop Kirkpatrick with contact information. You can also let Wendy at the WLSEF know.
