Detroit RiverWalk

Walk, stroll or roll at one of Detroit’s most scenic locations. The 1.5-mile course is picture perfect for a father-son run! Rent a bike or just sit and enjoy the beautiful riverfront with your entire family. Meet at the Atwater and Rivard Pavilion.

Free parking (we think).

Noon – 1:30 p.m.
Swing Out

Just like back in the day, join us in front of the old building in your hooptie, Honda or Hummer! Represent the Class of ’80, but tell your friends and family that are Cass Tech grads to meet you there. Bring your yearbooks, Letterman jackets, and club sweaters. Let’s travel down Memory Lane!

“Offsite” Pre-Reunion Event

David Eldred (Chemical Science) has graciously offered up his home for a 1980 class party to those living anywhere in the Washington, DC area. He IS planning to come to the Detroit reunion, but wanted to give those who couldn’t make it a chance to see their classmates.

Below is his announcement:

Greetings 1980 classmates!

I’m really looking forward to our 30th reunion and I must admit that all this planning and hard work have re-awakened so many great memories.

I know that some of you can’t or won’t be able to attend in Detroit in August so we’d like to host as many fellow alumni at our home for a BBQ beforehand. We’ll catch up, share some forgotten memories and reconnect. So if you live nearby, or, are in the DC area on Sunday May 16th, please join us at our home in Fairfax, VA. We’ll have the get together, rain or shine, and please bring your families as our 2 year old Samantha will be included in the festivities. Let’s get together at 3pm that Sunday.

Please RSVP by May 12th, and if you are not able to make it on that day, we look forward to keeping in touch and we’ll get together another time.

.. and if you haven’t seen them yet, I’ve posted a bunch of photos of us all in 1980 both my facebook page and the reunion facebook page. Enjoy.
