55th reunion final guidance


Fellow (SHC) Classmates of 63 attending the 55th reunion. 
This is our last communication concerning the 55th reunion for the SHC Class of 63. All the planning is completed.  In two weeks we implement the plan by coming together for two nights of friendship and comraderie. 
We are very pleased with the projected turnout, and send our thoughts and prayers to those who could not attend, many due to medical issues. 
Some helpful info for the reunion is repeated below:
Where: Gaetano's Event Center
            1617 Banksville road
            Pittsburgh Pa 15216
            Phone 412 343 6640
The check- in schedule for both nights is as follows:
On stag night, Friday September 14, we will follow this schedule:
Check-in 5-5:30 pm
Group picture after check-in
Cash bar 5:00 pm until 30 minutes before closure
Buffet:  heavy hor d'oeuvres(available after the group picture)
On Saturday September 15, we will follow this schedule
Check-in 5:15 pm Note; If you are attending both Friday and Saturday, your check-in will be completed Friday 
Cash bar 5:15 pm- until 30 minutes before closure.
Appetizers: available at 5:30 pm
Buffet:  Dinner begins after a group picture is taken of all the Saturday attendees. 6:30-6:45 pm is the goal.
We will have volunteers taking pictures during both evenings, which will be uploaded to the Class of 63 web site.
There will be three tables available for check-in.   The tables are identified by one of the four pay categories.  For example, the Friday only group will check-in at the table marked "Friday only".   The Friday/ Saturday couples group will check-in at the table marked "Friday/Saturday couples". The Friday/Saturday stag group and the Saturday only group will check-in at the table marked Friday/Saturday Stag group and Saturday only.  Someone will be available to answer questions should they arise.
Jerry Miller will be the MC on both nights
Steve Griffin will provide entertainment for both evenings
Some of you who are coming from outside Pittsburgh were asking about mass on Saturday.  St Catherine's in Beechview has a 4 pm mass.  If you are interested in this mass, it helps if you are travelling on Sunday, plus it gets you to the reunion on time.
Any classmates who decide to come to the reunion after initially responding no, will be welcomed. 
The fee for the evening would be based on one of the four pay categories. For example, if you came on Friday evening, the fee would be $27. 
If you have any questions please contact Hank Canello or myself. 
Looking forward to seeing everyone.
