Memorial High School Class Of 1979
Last minute stuff:
HELP! To any of my "local" Tulsa peep's: Di Bri (Diane Britton, to those not in M & G) in still has need of a few (3-5) folding tables for the Friday nite event and asked for any of you who would want to loan them to us for that event. Text her at 918.521.4645 if you can be of assistance...
ANSWER TO THE BIG QUESTION> All of the events are casual. IT IS TULSA, IN THE SUMMER. We are all over 50. There will only cool comfortable people all around you, don't be the one person who isn't.
No Tuxedos. No prom dresses. (well ok, maybe those 'tuxedo t-shirts', thats it!) Taking it the other direction, no "man-kinis", speedos, cut-offs from your high school days... Tasteful. Thats all. (no mankinis, Koester, I cant stress this enough)
To everyone making their ways to this gig, SAFE TRAVELS!!

Just IN: Saturday AM 10AM -1130AM.
Memorial High School Arena Tour.
We have arranged for the high school to open up the new arena (Opened 5/1/14) for our class to take a tour of the new building. If you haven't seen it, (or didnt even know it existed..) I am told it is very, very nice. As it might possibly be a bit warm that Saturday, I'm thinking we might enjoy a .1k walk from our cars to the new air-conditioned arena over the 5k walk around the golf course.
Please feel free to join us at 10am in the school parking lot. The new building is located west of the student parking lot and south of the "north 40" lot.
"Zumba in the Park" added to Saturday Picnic /5k @ LaFortune Park.
Classmates Sherri (Andrews) Sabin & Teresa (Heagler) Staggs have generously offered to lead a 45 min Zumba excercise / fitness class during / before the picnic @ LaFortune Park (SE SHELTER) on Saturday, July 19th. Both are certified instructors and tell me the class will be very fun for those of all ages!
Those of you wanting to participate before/ during or after the 5k walk/run feel free to let Sherri or Teresa know by messaging them on the class website or merely showing up on Saturday. They will have a portable sound system and be ready to go! Thanks for the donation, ladies. We look forward to working off some of the other reunion activities!!
Our Friday July 18, 2014 venue is the TriArch Building, 618 E. 3rd St, in Tulsa. it is owned by Scott Vrooman's (Pam's brother) architectual firm. It is the old Rainbow Bread building that they bought in 2009 and gutted /rehabbed to new LEED "green" standards. It has a rooftop garden area and will be a great venure for our Friday night.
It's on!! TMHS Class of 79' Reunion next Summer (July 17-20, 2014)
I'm very pleased to make the pre-announcement that we have secured our Saturday venue for the Reunion 35. I will make more details available as they become solidified, but know that many of you are wanting to get hard dates for travel and vacation plans.
These dates are golden, as we have already paid our deposit on our Saturday night spot, thanks to a very generous donation by one of our classmates, and lots of hard work by many others.
As usual, this class rises to the top and YOU ALL ROCK!! (you just dont know how much, yet!!)
Summer Get-Together -Tulsa July 20th
Cosmo Cafe and Bar - 34th and Peoria. 5:30pm - Come and join us to have good times and laughs, discussions of what to plan for in next years 35th Reunion...
UPDATE. 7/27/13 -
32 of the class met, had laughs, talked about next year and generally had a great time seeing each other. Most left with a good feel that, yes there was a lot of interest in next years 35th being a good idea. Several people there besides me have begun the process of researching venues for next summer. The proposed dates in mind will be July 2014, and either the second to last weekend or last weekend , venues willing. We are still waiting on a few places to get back with us on availabilty and pricing. Anyone with ideas should either get back with me or Cheryl Crawford or Stacy Gill. Start making plans, Chargers!! Its a party!
Hey Chargers of 79' -
Just a housekeeping note, but it has come to my attention that many of you have email accounts tied into work or cable providers etc.
As this site works on keeping you updated on the many functions this class has planned, it depends on an active email account to do so. I STRONGLY suggest you make your primary email account here, one that isnt a work related one rather one web based(i.e. Gmail, Hotmail etc...).
This way, if you happen to change jobs, the company gets bought out and changes IP info, or you move and dont have the same IP, you dont miss out on current info and cant log in because it sends your hints to an old email you cant get to... Most of these types of email accounts are free and hold years worth of old email on the cloud, not wasting space on your computer!
Feel free to email me if you need help in this easy process.
Just 1 short year til 35th. Make sure we get you opinion of how to make it the best one yet.
The 30th Reunion was July 9th, 10th and 11th, 2009 in Tulsa!!! A blast was had by all!! Pictures online now, here and here!! New video below!!
