It's coming.......our 50 year reunion......Summer of 2021
Even though our really, really big reunion is still 3 1/2 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 Jaycees 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. This venue is less than a mile from the East Longmeadow line. Give me your thoughts. It will be here before you know it!
