Our 45th reunion is 3 days away. We have booked our 45th reunion at Whitney's Party in Exeter on October 13, 2018! We have 107 already signed up to attend as of October 10th. If you would like to see a list of classmates that are attending CLICK RIGHT HERE!
The venue is located a little less than 10 miles east on Highway 198 from the Central Visalia Exit. Right off of this exit are several hotels and Beautiful Downtown Visalia which features many, many great restaurants, shops, breweries, and bars. The venue is a more informal setting that has beautiful inside and outside areas that are clean and well-lit. If you are hesitant to drive, there are taxis companies, Uber and Lyft that will service the venue.
In order to collect information from classmates in an efficient way, an electronic form has been created to gather the information for future reunions. In fact less than $5 was spent on postage for the last reunion - because almost everything was handled electronically. To submit information click this link: Whitney Class of 73 Information Form. Registration does not commit you to attend this or future reunions, but helps us to know how to share occasional information with you about news or events that pertain to the Mt. Whitney Class of 1973.
We have subscribed to Classmates.com during the reunion years in the past but this subscription has been canceled because of costs. We also could not control the amount of "messages" and reminders that Classmates.com would send out. With social media and word of mouth we feel that we can adequately reach our classmates in a more economical way. Address, phone number and email information can be submitted by using this form or by emailing updates throughout the years to email@example.com. The best way to stay informed about the Mt. Whitney Class of 1973 is right here!
We have created a FaceBook page as well. If you are on FaceBook, please "like us" and encourage fellow classmates that are your "friends" to do the same. Using FaceBook is another way of making sure people can find out about what we are doing. Please share this link and information about the reunion with others in our class. Susan (Veyna) Onstott manages that source of information.
Please check the "In Memory" section of this website. Unfortunately, we have lost an unusually high number of members over the past years. We feel that it is important to remember our classmates and acknowledge their passing. If we have missed anyone, please help us by passing along confirmed information.
