40th Reunion Photos

2012 40th Reunion Recap Message:  (scroll down for photo collections)

Well, the Reunion weekend has come and gone and as Juan Antonio Samaranch (former Olympics IOC President) would say…. “we declare these games a resounding success and declare them closed.  We will meet again in 5 years at a place and date to be determined”

But, seriously, folks, the universal response from those who attended was that it was a wonderful weekend.  Everyone seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves.  Lots of laughs, hugs, memories, good music, and catching up.  For those who wanted to attend and couldn’t, we missed you.  For those of you who aren’t sure that reunions are for you…try it some time!!! 

The Friday night mixer was attended by about 80 people.  It was a fun, casual, “show up if you want to” kind of night.  Lots of conversation, squinting at name tags, liquid refreshment, and laughs.   We had a few surprise guests.

There were 63 people at the Saturday Dinner/Dance at the Clarion banquet rooms. The room was decorated beautifully under Patti Walter’s direction, there was a bunch of Crossland memorabilia on display, a running photoshow from past reunions, and a scrumptious  “CHS 72” cake from BJs.  DJ Doug Guinn played a great selection of listening then dancing music that kept folks dancing til the lights went out.  Donna McConchie led a hilarious audience participation game called “Hummdingers” where volunteers would put on headphones, listen to a familiar tune, and hum the melody.  The audience had to guess what the song was.  It was amazing how difficult it was to hum the tunes and guess the songs…lots of hamming it up and laughs ensued.

Finally, the Sunday breakfast at Damon’s was a nice wrap to the weekend.  One last chance to laugh, hug, and promise to stay in touch.  There were probably 40 people at breakfast including a late drop in by Dale Woytko, Steve Helferd, Katie Jackson, and Phil Jackson.  You never know who will turn up at these events!!

Until we meet again….
