Palisades Charter High School Class of 1966, Pacific Palisades, CA50 Year Reunion . 9/17/2016 . Marina City Club
I was contacted by Rick about assisting in the organization of the 1966 Palisades High 50th reunion. The 10th and 20th were well attended, but the 30th was sparsely attended, I heard there was one, as email addresses were just emerging. The Reunion Committee team did a terrific job of doing the initial compilation of phone numbers, addresses, and emails from the 1966 yearbook and the commencement program. Throughout the process they provided support, information, guidance and encouragement. The event was held at the Marina City Club in a lovely room. Food turned out fine and the DJ music arranged by TRC really brought back memories. Several of us brought mementos after going through old boxes, closets, and scrapbooks to put on display. TRC staff manned the check-in table which allowed all of the guests to circulate and catch-up. The evening went so well that I volunteered to do the event again for the 60th in ten years. Since then I have gotten several emails requesting that we not wait for the 60th and do an event again in five years. I can’t rave enough about the support provided by TRC staff. I really appreciated the assistance provided by the office staff. They were on top of everything, even giving helpful reminders and prodding. No question was ever silly or disregarded. I received frequent updates of information and ticket sales. My fears about “chairing” the event quickly disappeared and it turned out to be a lot of fun, only to be topped by the event itself. Thanks to everyone at TRC!! It was a huge success!!!
