It's coming.......our 50 year reunion......Summer of 2021
Even though our really, really big reunion is still just under two and a half years away, I would like your thoughts on holding the big event over the Fourth of July weekend. Generally, the Town of East Longmeadow holds the fireworks celebration on the night of July 3rd at 10:00 PM. There is no guarantee that this tradition will still be ongoing in 2021, but we can hope. Also not a guarantee, is the annual carnival held at the ballfields in the Center. It usually stretches for a four or five day run with a beer tent to meet up with old friends. The parade should still be in existence, and should be held on July 4th, barring any complaints from the churches on the Sunday parade route. Monday, the 5th, will be the actual legal holiday. I'm thinking of an informal picnic/pig roast or such, at the Springfield Lodge of Elks covered pavilion. I have reserved the Elks Pavilion for Friday, July 2, 2021. I have not put any money down as yet to hold the reservation, but I would like to hear from as many classmates as possible if they like this idea or not. This venue is less than a mile from the East Longmeadow line. Give me your thoughts. Click on the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page. It will be here before you know it!
