Joe las vegas

[Joe DeVille at the Tropicana Hotel, Las Vegas, for our 35th Reunion, October 2002.]

El Cerrito High School Class of 1967

(and the Classes of 1966 and 1968)

50th Reunion!!!

Your presence is requested at the Mira Vista Golf and Country Club,

El Cerrito, California, on Saturday, October 14, 2017,

 at 5:00 p.m. for dinner, dancing, reminiscing, nostalgic décor, and more.

Entertainment by the Nite Owls, the rock band that was the hit of the

40th and 45th reunions.

Use our early bird/senior discount plan* to reserve your place at the reunion dinner-dance or please send $125 per person by check.  Checks should be made payable to “ECHS Class of 1967,” postmarked by September 1 and sent to Roddy Lee, 3333 Rossmoor Parkway Manor #1, Walnut Creek, CA 94595 or use your PayPal account (see below, PayPal accounts are typically linked to your credit card).

 *Discounted ticket price of $100, saving each attendee $25, $50 for a couple, will be accepted if the payment envelope is postmarked by July 1.  We would like to get a head count for our various pre- and post-reunion activities and give Mira Vista a number so they can provide the right number of dinners.  Don’t miss your dinner  — prime rib and vegetarian alternative!  Payments postmarked after July 1 but by September 1 will be $125.  Or call/email Roddy if you have concerns or questions about reservations or need an installment plan.

We cannot promise there will be a reunion after the 50th.  High attendance at the 50th will increase the possibility of future reunions.   Reunion attendees always have a welcoming attitude, and attendees will be glad to see you and you’ll be glad you came!

In addition to the main reunion event, there will be an informal gathering the previous day, Friday, beginning at 7:00 p.m., at Brennan’s Restaurant, 700 University Avenue, Berkeley; a tour of the new El Cerrito campus, TBD, on Saturday; and a picnic the next day, Sunday, from noon to 5:00, at Arlington Park in El Cerrito.

Schedule for Saturday night:

  • 5:00 Cocktails and conversation, on the Mira Vista deck.
  • 7:30 Dinner featuring two entrées.  Dinner will include a program.
  • 9:30 Entertainment: The Nite Owls — professional rockers from our class and the hit of the 40th and 45th reunions.  Dancing and reminiscing.
  • 11:30 Lights out.

A quiet room for conversation, far from the band, will be available after dinner.

In addition to sending your payment, please, in the box below, include email address, U.S. Mail address, phone and attending information.

Help us spread the word!  50 years after ECHS, many of our classmates are “missing persons”!  That is, we do not have a good email or regular mail address for them.  Please look at the attached list of missing persons.  We could significantly increase reunion attendance if we knew how to reach more people.  Many of these members of our class would love to join us if only they knew about the reunion!

Let us know the whereabouts of the missing (please provide any info you have, including, where possible, name, email address, U.S. Mail address, and phone).  Please think of people from your elementary school, Portola, or ECHS whom you would like to see at the reunion and contact them ASAP.  Look at the yearbook.

Mail your payment to Roddy Lee, 3333 Rossmoor Parkway Manor #1, Walnut Creek, CA 94595. Email or phone “missing persons” information you have or can obtain, to Roddy via email ECHS1967@aol.com or phone to 925-954-1861.

Looking forward to a great party!!
