55 Year Reunion Announcement!

REUNION DETAILS

Friday,  September  30,  2016


IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO JOIN YOUR CLASSMATES FOR REUNION 55!

NEHS Class of ’61 for “Reunion 55” Update:

The response to the Reunion has been outstanding! Over 100 people have already indicated that they will be attending this fun, casual, three-day event Friday, Sept. 30, Saturday, Oct. 1 and Sunday, Oct. 2nd in Eugene!

We obtained a private room at Roaring Rapids Pizza Friday, Sept. 30 from 5 to 9 PM. The Great Bear Room will enable us to walk around and visit. The quieter atmosphere will promote more conversation and enable all to hear what is being said. The Pizza Buffet will cost $11 per person with soft drinks costing $2.25 and beer $3.25 regular/$4.25 craft, wine $5.25 per glass.


Saturday’s activities include the following choices.


Share and Prayer at NEHS
Will Moir will be leading a Share and Prayer meeting at North Eugene High School from 9AM until 10:15. Please contact Will at wwmoir@q.com or 541-461-5929 so he will know how many are planning to attend. If you can't attend and have a need that you would like the group to pray for, please email it to me. The meeting will take place in the area in front of the auditorium. Gale Roid, Bob Long and Marilee Mascarenhas will help lead the meeting. Everyone is welcome.


Walk Along the Willamette River
Gary Bartel will be leading a Walk along the Willamette River at 10:30 AM. Saturday walking event will start about 10:30 at the Greenway pedestrian/bike bridge behind Valley River Center. Large parking lot. We have a choice of 2 routes and both are 4 mile loops and both are beautiful. Will have maps available at pizza party.


Pub Tour at Noon
Jack Whitney will be leading a Pub Tour beginning at Noon. The tour will make two visits and stop to have lunch. This short tour will last a little over two hours.

We will meet at the Rogue: Eugene City Brewery at noon or shortly thereafter. Those of us walking the Bartel Walk to burn off a few calories for the beer we will consume may not make it exactly at noon. The Rogue Brewery is at 844 Olive Street. Unique to this Rogue Brewery are three Track Town Ales which include the 200 Meter Ale, the Honey Orange Wheat, and the Triple Jump Pale Ale. In addition, there will be a selection of 45 Rogue brews. There should be something for everyone’s beer preference. After we are finished at Rogue, I will have another local brewery to visit.
If you are planning to go on the pub tour, I would appreciate you contacting me directly (Jack Whitney - or at the Roaring Rapids Pizza event. We will have some designated drivers, so if we know who is coming we can try to accommodate our classmates so that driving is held to a minimum.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Norman Nevers


After college I taught high school at Bend Hi for 4 years. Then moved to Salem where I worked for State Farm Insurance in the regional office. In 1973 I moved to Portland and began working in the tourism industry. From 1973 to 1977 I taught business college accounting and travel. In 1977 I moved to Reno and worked in several different hotels. In 1980 moved again to Palm Springs where I continued in the hospitality industry. In the late 80's I moved back to Oregon to be close to my mother who lived in Eugene since I was an only kid. I moved to Portland and have continued to work in the tourism industry. In 1997 my best friend moved to Portland from Houston and we began a residential cleaning service which is still going today. I have retired but still work the cleaning service and in the hotel business to keep myself occupied.
