Lots of fun (you should'a come!) and we have pics

Some folks did a great job of embracing the old Hollywood theme (hellooo, Vickie! Sunglasses and a faux leopard coat!) and you can check out photos taken by the professional photographer here. We all left excited about the 50 year reunion, coming up in 4 or 5 years, depending on with which class you graduated.

Back to the Future and Old Hollywood

I looked for Marty and Doc Brown a few days ago but no such luck--

I did, however, find that John Marshall High School (3939 Tracy Street, Los Angeles, CA 90027) is having another reunion for the combined 1970 and 1971 classes, although ALL Marshall grads from any class year are welcome to attend; the theme will be Old Hollywood.

SAVE the DATE: September 24, 2016 (exactly five years since the last one); this time at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City.

There will be an event on Friday (included in the price), the reunion itself on Saturday, and for those staying at the hotel or sufficiently local, brunch on Sunday (not included in the price).

So pry open some space on your calendar, next September, and come join your fellow Marshallite Barristers for some "Old Hollywood" fun.

We broke 150!

Thanks for coming and supporting and enjoying the Reunion! More than 30 people showed up at the Marriott Friday evening to hang out and enjoy each other's company and I'd guess more than that were present for breakfast or brunch Sunday morning... which, for some of us, came very early!

Not only did we have a colorful reunion, we were also sharing the hotel with an Irish Step Dancing competition, so I saw lots of adorable little girls (and grown-up girls, too) with big trophies - what fun!

Lots of photos and comments starting to appear over on Facebook, so follow the link and enjoy! We will also put together a commemorative CD or DVD, so please send us your photos! Details at the John Marshall 1970 & 1971 Class Reunion website.

Ah! happy puppy!!

Bubbling Under 140

...and we can still take your PayPal payment (you'll save $11 over "at the door" pricing) and Joanna can apparently do a final update of our numbers, having already given the Burbank Airport Marriott our preliminary final numbers (!! - I know, that's an oxymoron, eh?!).

Bottom line: get over to the Reunion website and use the PayPal link. If you're super quick-like-a-bunny I might even be able to get your personalized nametag made up in time for Saturday night-- ;D

Still taking PayPal at $89...

It's past the deadline for mailing us a check but you can still join the Reunion by clicking through on the Marshall Class Reunion website's PayPal link. Obviously we want to know as soon as possible how many grads and guests are coming - that way we can have enough tables, chairs, and FOOD! The price will go up to $100 on Saturday, the 24th, but you can buy your ticket via PayPal even on the 24th.

We've got 120 coming, more than 80% are Marshall grads; do come join us - I'm getting excited!!
