Classes with Reunions in 2018

The ACHS Class of 1968 Reunion Committee is pleased to announce the dates for our 50th anniversary class reunion weekend.  The weekend will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday September 14-15-16, 2018.The reunion committee has been meeting since mid 2017and is working on the finalization of events to take place all three days of the weekend.

The Saturday night dinner (9/15) will once again be held at the Buffalo Yacht Club at the foot of Porter Avenue on the Niagara River, right near the Peace Bridge.  This was the site of our 2013 45th reunion main event and was clearly the best choice that was offered to the committee (in addition to the positive feedback from attendees from 2013 on our outreach – we thank you!).

We are exploring multiple options for the Friday night of the weekend, in addition to the traditional meet-and-greet at Brunner’s Tavern that has been the kick-off for previous reunions.  In addition, the committee will review options for a casual Sunday brunch, possibly in the Canalside area in the downtown Buffalo area.

Because of the move from July to September, ACHS will be in session on the Friday of our reunion weekend.  We plan to have a tour of the high school on Saturday morning most likely from 9-11 AM.  Once the logistics of the tour can be finalized we will post this on the ACAF web site.  The tours are conducted normally by board members of the Amherst Central Alumni Foundation and I can assure you that they are very competent in being able to give an outstanding tour for those who wish to participate.

The committee has already done extensive research regarding hotel lodging for out of town class members, and a very comprehensive hotel listing with room blocks and registration links is available to anyone wishing to stay at a hotel for the reunion weekend.  You can contact Clay Pasternack at achscp1968@gmail.com.  There is the possibility for that weekend to be home football games for the Buffalo Bills and/or University of Buffalo, which made it necessary for us to secure the lodging well in advance of the reunion weekend.

Further details regarding our reunion will be posted here on the ACAF website, along with our class group on Facebook, as well as the email blasts that will be sent monthly beginning in January, 2018

Here is the current list of our reunion committee, who have been meeting casually again for about 18 months and are now ready to plan the big 5-0:

Grant Golden   Don Houck   Rich Morin

Neal (Tad) O’Rourk   Clay Pasternack   Jeff Rausch

Debbie Snow Louttit   Craig Speers   Laurie Steinmetz

We all look forward to hearing from you and especially seeing you next September!
