50th CLASS REUNION - THE BEST EVER! OCTOBER 1 - 2, 2021
The celebration is coming and it’s time to make your plans to be in Abilene, TX October 1st & 2nd to gather with old friends and classmates from the Abilene High Class of 1971. We have selected the Hilton Garden Inn at 4449 Ridgemont, 325.690.6432 as Reunion Central. There are rooms set aside for our class so you can call and reserve your room now. There is a lot going on in Abilene that weekend so make your reservations early.
Friday Oct 1st - Meet and greet in the hotel ballroom with food and a cash bar. The Friday game will be streamed and we plan to have it on the screen so we can have a game watch party.
Saturday Oct 2nd - Breakfast in the hotel ballroom so we can gather and visit some more. After breakfast, the plan is to head to dear ole Abilene High for a stroll through the halls and around campus. We hope to gather all of us for group picture on the steps. Saturday night we will have a sit-down dinner and the Hilton Garden to share our memories and honor those we have lost. We are working to have a planning dinner soon to go over detail. We welcome your ideas, so let us know your thoughts.
Cost/Payment - $75 per person - checks can be made out to Abilene High Class of 1971. Please mail to PO Box 6108, Abilene, TX 79608.
Friday Oct 1st - Golf Outing, approximate tee off around 10:30-11AM. Will be finished with plenty of time to go to the hotel and check-in before evening activities get underway. We haven’t decided which course we’ll play (probably Diamondback!) , and the cost is NOT included in the cost to attend the reunion. If interested, call or text Stan Lambert at 325-660-4742.
Sunday Oct 3rd - Lincoln Junior High Alum Brunch 10-11:30AM - Since Cooper is also having their reunion on the same weekend as ours, there's lots of talk about having a brunch on Sunday morning for Lincoln Junior High alums (Go Longhorns!). No decision yet on a location so more details to follow. There will be no additonal cost for this event as it will be underwritten by old friends of LJH.
Please help us update addresses, especially email addresses and phone numbers of “lost” classmates. You can direct them to the AHS Class of ‘71 website to update their profile - www.ahseagles71.com.
