The Class of 65 Celebrates its 50th Reunion!

WPHS Newsletter
August 2014

EIGHT more months and counting til our 50 Reunion??? Thank you to all who are already making plans to attend. Save The Date, March 6th – 8, 2015. This just might be the last reunion that we can recognize our classmates, still dance and stay awake past nine o’clock, so don’t miss out!

  • Tentative RSVP: If you did not reply with a tentative rsvp in March, please respond to this one so we will have a tentative count. We would like to keep the cost the same as our last reunion if at all possible and the number of people attending will dictate that. The last runion was $80.00 per person which includes the rental for both Friday and Saturday nights, Friday light hors d’oeuvres and Saturday night dinner and band. Friday is BYOB and Saturday is a cash bar.

  • Hotel Information: Kris Kane Crosby Since the Mount Vernon is for sale we cannot book anything there. If you feel like splurging, the nicest and closest hotel is the The Alfond Inn (the old Langford Hotel) 300 East New England Ave., Winter Park, FL but it is over $300 a night. The next nicest and closest hotel is The Comfort Inn & Suites, 2416 N. Orange Ave., Orlando, FL – to get your discount make your reservations under WPHS Class of 65. Rooms are usually $139.00 a night and we get a group rate of $95.00 a night as long as we have a minimum of 10 rooms booked. Please book early as this is the closest hotel to the Florida Hospital and they are usually booked to capacity. They have nice rooms, a continental breakfast and close to the hospital if you party too much. You can check either hotel out on the web.
  • Friday Night Social: The Winter Park Woman’s Club, located across the street from the new Alfond Inn and within walking distance of downtown Winter Park. Let's walk down memory lane at least one more time. It will be BYOB and light hors d’oeuvres. We are hoping to add an optional BBQ dinner for an additional cost for those who would like to stay and eat together giving us more time to break the ice, socialize and get in the PARTY mood. We may even have some surprise entertainment that you won’t want to miss!
  • Saturday Night Dinner and Dance: We have confirmed the Winter Park Racquet Club for our Saturday night dinner and dance. Come prepared to go back in time with music from the 60’s.
  • Contributions: Many of you made contributions towards the last reunion to keep the cost down and help defray cost for some of our classmates who could not have afforded to come without your help. If any of you are able and willing to do the same for our 50th, please send all contributions to Bob Milstead, 4044 Tenita Dr., Winter Park, FL 32792. Make checks payable to WPHS1965 or Bob Milstead. Thank you for your support of our 50th Reunion.
  • Contacts: We plan to communicate by email, Facebook and webpage. Thanks to all of you who have sent updated e-mail information. Please help us find our classmates by contacting anyone from our class with whom you still keep in touch. . If they did not receive this e-mail then we do NOT have a current e-mail address for them, so please forward the newsletter to them and ask that they respond with their email address. A list of graduates whom we had e-mail addresses for at the last reunion but came back undeliverable on our last newsletter is attached to this newsletter. If you have their e-mail contact information please send it to us.

    • HELP, HELP AND MORE HELP….PLEASE. I haven’t given a lot of thought to this yet, so ANY and ALL ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
