Amherst Class of 1969 50th Reunion Committee - Seeking Your Input!

Hello Fellow Amherst Classmates!   

Now that we have the 50th Reunion date reserved on our calendars (you do, don’t you?) and the Saturday evening venue secured, (Buffalo Yacht Club), it’s time to make your intentions known. Your feedback will definitely help us with our continued planning.  

(1). As we've done in the past, we will coordinate a casual, "meet & greet" gathering (with name tags) on Friday evening, September 13th at a local bar/restaurant, (possibly, Loughran's or Brunner’s), and want to know who would be interested in attending? Both spots are known for their excellent fish fry & reasonably-priced, pub fare for folks who may want to meet in advance for dinner. 

(2). We also need to know if you are a definite "yes", "maybe", "or "no" for the Cocktail Party/Dinner at the Buffalo Yacht Club on Saturday night, September 14th? Approximate cost $60-65/person.

(3). On Saturday or Sunday, would you be interested in touring Buffalo downtown & waterfront? There are many new and exciting places to explore, and if you haven’t been back to Buffalo in awhile, would you like to join other classmates on a bus excursion? Check out Explore Buffalo and Buffalo Double Decker Bus online for some tour examples. Cost TBD

(4). Depending on the High School weekend schedule, there may be time for a school tour or Friday sports events to check out "under the lights.". We will share those details as they become available. 

Our timetable &  plan includes (1) mailing/reunion registration sent to everyone in our class database. Therefore, we would appreciate any donation you might be willing to make to offset the cost of planning expenses: printing, postage, and other incidental costs.  Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Checks may be made payable to Amherst Class of 1969 c/o Ellen Marshall - 110 Saratoga Rd., Amherst, NY 14226

To assist with your travel & reservations, attached is a WNY listing of a variety of hotels. Note: Very popular new spots, including the Hotel Henry & Reikart House (former Lord Amherst), fill up quickly. Click to view hotels-->

Your reunion committee is very excited about this upcoming event, and hope that most of you will be joining us!  We are looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up on what has been going on with you over the last 5 (or more) years.
