*See image below for breakout session topics and meeting IDs for Saturday night only. You will have to leave the main meeting location or use a separate device for the breakout sessions, if you choose to join. This may sound a bit more challenging than it actually is! It will be worth it! Let’s celebrate! Rock that Big 8-0!

To the Class of 1980 of Cass
Technical High School,
The highly anticipated 40th
Class Reunion is just about one year away!
As we consider this milestone, and how we’d like to celebrate, we cannot
help but to reflect on our journey since we left the hallowed halls of Cass
Tech 39 years ago. We’ve lived, loved,
laughed and lost. Many are blessed to have children and
grandchildren. Some of our children have
continued as Legacy Students at Cass Tech.
The senior’s shirts from the Class of 2019 at CT said it best: “There are 2 kinds of people, those who went
to Cass Tech, and those who wished they did!”
(And we know that’s the truth!)
As we prepare for our next reunion,
we want to be transparent about what is needed to make our 40th an over-the-top
experience. Gone are the days that we’re
doing fundraisers that yield a low return… So, we are asking for what is
needed with hopes that classmates will respond quickly to meet the need. A weekend filled with unique and memorable
experiences is being planned. We’d like
one of the highlights to include the Ovation Yacht for a dinner cruise which
requires a significant deposit to secure the date. This will be an exquisite evening to remember
with food, beverages, and entertainment included. Don’t think the Princess or Bob-Lo Boat. Google
the Ovation, and you’ll see this is the kind of next-level experience we’d
love! It’s sophisticated and perfect for
mature celebrants. All we will need to
do is board, and we will be catered to as we enjoy 3 levels of the vessel while
cruising the Detroit River. Our Friday mixer and Sunday activities will be
confirmed after we secure the venue for the dinner on Saturday.
We need $15K. Classmates who can and will are asked to pay $120
(the Early Bird cost of the reunion) by September 30, 2019. This will allow us to put down the deposits
needed to get things in motion. We can’t
wait to secure the venues we’d like to use.
Weddings, class reunions and family reunions are being booked now
Since the very first reunion
in 1990, there has never been an issue with the management of our class’
finances. Every penny has been accounted
for, and meticulous financial records have been kept. We’re asking that you reach out to those in
your friendship circle to get the word out, and to help us to get the seed
money for our reunion. We need the
commitment of at least 125 classmates.
Can we count on you? If you’re able to do more, or would like to discuss
event sponsorship, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
