Click Here to send an email, include your year of graduation from FVHS, to the event planners.

 

Prepaid tickets and registration are required for the dinner dance on Saturday, October 26.  There will be no ticket sales at the door.  Space is limited.  Act soon, the dinner dance event is selling out.

  • The dinner includes premium wine and four food stations, all included in the price of the ticket.
  • There is an indoor room, the “Terrace Room” (wait, then click on > lower left of display to start video) which will have a dance floor, snacks, a disc jockey from 5-midnight, and a video display with a looping slideshow with photos from our website.
  • There is a large patio, the “Oasis Court”, (wait, then click on > lower left of display to start video) which will have tables for dinner, a disc jockey from 5 – midnight, food stations during dinner, dance floor, and a smoking area (senior patio?).
  • Two bars serving complimentary premium wine, and “cash bar” for beer and cocktails.
  • Festive decorations.

There will be tables set up for memorabilia in the Terrace Room.  Bring your yearbooks, pom poms, peachy folders, pep ribbons, santa grams and all that cool stuff to show off.  The decorations team is looking for eight posters to go on easels from concerts or surf movies or other occasions you may have stashed away...  This is going to be a great night to reminisce!

“If you have a business and would like to advertise in the written reunion program, we are offering business card sized advertisements for $100.  If you want to provide camera ready art and have a larger ad that can be arranged.  There are at least three sponsorships available if you want to fund either the photo booth, or one of the two disc jockeys.  We will create a sign for your business and recognize your sponsorship during the program.  Donations for this event are not tax deductible, although sponsorships and advertising may be treated as business expenses.  Check with your accountant.”

Thankfully, we recevied a couple of business card size advertisements over the weekend.  These small advertisements are a great way to promote your business while showing your support for our class and helping out the reunion fund. Three very good things for $100.  Bargain!  Just send an email to 45threunion@fountainvalley74.com with a scanned copy of your business card and we will take care of the rest.

Football tickets will be purchased when they go on sale October 21 (Monday).  Get your orders in!  Tickets will be distributed at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach upon check-in for those staying Friday night at the hotel.  Otherwise you can pick them up at the ice-breaker event at Silky Sullivan's.  Other arrangements can be made, let us know what works for you.

The reunion team met at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, the site of our reunion on October 26, earlier this month.  Each day we had a different group of people in the meetings.  After our final meeting on Sunday, we made a short video.

Our schedule of events for the weekend is posted on the  "45th Reunion Information" page. (Look up and to the right)

THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN!

If you are just checking in to this website for the first time, please register if you are a member of the class of '74.  The price for dinner dance tickets is $150 per person.

Some people are sending regrets that they won't be able to attend.  The good news is that you can participate even if you can't be with us in Newport Beach on October 26, or at any of the other events we are planning.  The website is a great place to exchange greetings and update your classmates on what you've been up to.

To help with that, here are a few additions you will see as they are added over the next couple of weeks:

1) More questions and space to answer on your profile.  Use "Edit Profile" to add what you want to communicate about your journey.  Post a short video greeting on your profile.  Use your smartphone and upload to YouTube or Vimeo.  Your kids might be able to help if you aren't sure how to do it.

2) New photo galleries.   "Wedding Photos", "The Places We've Been", and "The People We've Met".  You can follow the instructions to post photos yourself (they won't go up immediately, though).  Or you can send them in an email to 45threunion@fountainvalley74.com and the photos will be posted by the reunion team for you.

3) More answers to questions as they come in.  Send your questions to 45threunion@fountainvalley74.com, or hit the "Contact Us" button.

4) Suggestions?

Toujours Avec Fierte,

Classmates,

In order to ensure you receive important messages from our class web site, as well as messages sent directly to you from other Classmates, it's important you whitelist the email address noreply@classcreator.net (that's a .net, not a .com).

What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address noreply@classcreator.net.

Class Creator, the system that helps us operate our class web site, uses the address noreply@classcreator.net when sending out email messages. Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting noreply@classcreator.net is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving your emails from your fellow Classmates.

Stop and take a moment to whitelist noreply@classcreator.net right now, and ensure you stay connected!

Sincerely,

Mike Lucia
