Destination 75th Birthday


After our 55th class reunion, some of us discussed the possibility of holding a 75th birthday party in the fall of 2020 at a destination venue.  Since almost everyone was born in 1945, we thought that having a 75th birthday celebration would be fun way of having a class get-together.  Holding another event in the Bay Area has become cost prohibitive and traffic is an issue when trying to have multiple social events there.

We discussed having the event in Tucson, Arizona; not just because Linda Lavin and I both live here, but because Tucson and the surrounding area provide a large variety of things to see and do.

Please review the above lists and see if visiting the Tucson area for a few days would be something that you would consider or want to do.  Once we know of the interest level, we will provide more details of what a potential list of a small number of group events would be.  

If we decide to pull this off in 2020, the idea would be for attendees to make  as long of a visit as they want to include the tiime for a cocktail party and separate dinner event.
