It’s now only 6 weeks until the reunion. So if you are coming, or if you have not quite decided if you’re coming or not, now is the time to get your check in the mail so that Ron can give the hotel an accurate count for food. Also, we are approaching the time when our hotel room block is going to be lifted. I hope that you will join Connie and Ron and many of your classmates September 6-8 in Reno for our 55th reunion.
Dress for Fri eve cocktail party at the hotel is "Casual". A list of dinner venues will be available for Fri nite. If you are still up after dinner, Connie and Bill are hosting a hospitality suite in their room.

55th reunion update

Dear Classmates,

I have recently returned from Reno where I finalized the details for our 55th reunion at the Sure Stay Plus Airport Plaza Hotel.  I am very excited about our venue and the arrangements that have been made. It all starts at 5:00 PM Friday with a meet and greet reception on the second floor next to the Aztec Room. A no host bar along with assorted Cheeses, crackers, and vegetable plates for all to munch on while you catch up with each other's recent travels. You will be on your own for dinner, but Bill and Connie Green will be hosting a hospitality room after dinner..

Saturday day you will be on your own to do what you would like in Reno. 
Be aware that Reno will be hosting their annual Hot Air Baloon Races that day. It is a very special event, if you have not seen it before. Saturday night's dinner will be in the second floor banquet room and begin with cocktails at 5:30. At 7:00, the buffet will be served consisting of:

Caesar Salad
Trip-tip
Chicken Picatta
Rice Pilaf
Triple cheese au gratin 
Seasonal vegetables
Bread and butter
AND Cake, coffee, and tea for dessert.

Sunday's breakfast buffet, also on the second floor, will be available from 8:00 to 11:00, as I tried to accommodate most everybody's
departing travel plans. 

We have rooms blocked for our class at $110.00 per night. Our room block is NOT in the Sure Stay national system, so when you call the
hotel to book your room, select the option connecting you to the front desk, NOT the reservation option. Also, because of the Hot Air
Balloon races, you should book your room early as we could experience pressure to give up our rooms to outside guests.

Hope to see you in September,

Ron Johnson, WHS Class of '64

Class of 64 updates from Ron

Dear Classmates,
Well, it is April 1st and in most parts of the country, Spring is in the air.
It also means that our 55th reunion is only 5 months away. It also means
that there is only one month left to get the bargain price of $75.00 per
person for a meet and greet party on Friday, dinner on Saturday, and
brunch on Sunday before you head home. All of that AND plenty of time
to catch up with all of your “old” classmates!!!!!!!! Prices will increase
to $85.00 per person starting May 1st.
A lot has changed for many of us of us over the last 5-10 years and,
unfortunately changes are going to be the norm going forward. So don’t
put off the chance to see your friends one more time. The regulars know
that our reunions are always a fun and memorable time.
Ron Johnson
WHS Class of ‘64

ps: the name of the hotel has changed. It is now part of the Sure Stay Hotel group by Best Western. You still need to call for reservations. 775 348-6370. Ask for the Westmoor HS room group.

pss: We have inquired and they have set aside room for  people bringing their dogs but you must arrange this in advance.

Mary Woodside Smith 1946-2018

Dear Friends

Mary Woodside Smith passed gently in her sleep early the saturday morning December 8.  She is survived by her son, nieces, nephews and of course, wonderful friends.  Mary had been battling cancer for the last 3 years.  

I received this sad information from Cinda, one of Mary's closest friends. As soon as Cinda has more information on services she will pass it on.  We will also have a mailing address then for anyone who wishes to send card.  

Mary loved to attend the Westmoor reunions and was disappointed she missed the cruise and the BBQ.  

Love to all,
Marian and Cinda

55th reunion class of 64

Dear classmates,
Since our 50th reunion, our class has had several get togethers for lunches,
dinners, cruises, and a fabulous party at Jerry Ball’s Santa Cruz home last month.
Now it is time to begin to focus on our 55th reunion next year. The dates are set: September
6th-8th. The place is the Airport Plaza Hotel in Reno, Nevada. For the mere price of $70.00
per person, there will be a no-host cocktail meet and greet Friday night, a sat night dinner with dancing
(if anyone can still dance, at our age), and a Sunday brunch before your departure. We have
blocked 50 rooms at favorable rates at the hotel for your convenience.
Official notifications will be sent out early next year, but save the date now so there be
no reason to miss our next great class reunion.
Enjoy the upcoming holiday season and look for the official notification early next year.

Message from Ron

Dear Classmates,
To quote Martha Reeves and the Vandellas
“Summer’s here and the time is right”
to BBQ in Santa Cruz.
We currently have 60 classmates and spouses who are planning to attend
and the price for everyone is a perfect FREE!!!!!!!!
So get out your calendars and mark down the date: Saturday September 29th.
It’s a great way to warm up for next year’s 55th reunion. Oh, and did I mention-
It’s FREE!!!!!!!!
