As of 1970, it has only been 50 years since we all graduated. Unfortunately, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has keep us physically apart.
A couple of weeks ago,we hosted another great Zoom reunion. While we are seeing promise on properties opening up and more people being vaccinated, many hotels and event venues in South Florida are still restricting the number of people who can gather in ballrooms and are taking extraordinary measures for banquet seating, serving meals, and providing dance floors.
Everyone on our Zoom call preferred to wait until 2022 when all restrictions are hopefully eliminated and all our classmates are more comfortable traveling and gathering. Many of us will turn 70 years old in 2022 so, perhaps, a new theme for our 1970 reunion could be ‘70 at 70’.
We want to see if May 2022 or October 2022 dates are preferred so we have issued a very short, 4-question survey regarding future dates and well as continued interest in participating in our quarterly reunion calls. The survey should take less than 3 minutes and your response helps us make this an event of our lifetime. We will keep the survey open for 2 weeks – please respond by May 9th.
If you hung out out with some of us, even if you didn't graduate in 1970 or from MHS, you are welcome. We might make fun of Coral Gables Cavaliers, because...well, you know. Check out the "Who's Going" page and encourage your buds to sign up too to enhance your experience.
We are keeping our Website, communications, and bank accounts open and these activities require minimal expenses. Therefore, we are not automatically refunding registration fees. If you want to have your fees refunded, please note two conditions:
If you registered before February 1, 2020 and received the early registration discount, please understand that, if you decide to re-register for the Reunion, you will pay the regular registration fees.
If we refund your fees now, we will deduct 5% of the fee to cover our administrative costs (credit card merchant fees, website maintenance, bank fees).
There is no set deadline for cancelling your registration. You can request a refund anytime based on the conditions above by sending an email to Rick Grimm at email@example.com
