Message: Hi John. Could you please post on the Reunions page that there will be a group rate at the Marriott for our reunion. The guaranteed rate is $139/night for rooms reserved before July 10th. We have had to guarantee at least 10 rooms to get this rate and unfortunately, if we don't have that many reservations by 7/10, the rate will revert back to the regular rate of $149. I don't think we will have a problem with getting the 10 rooms but be sure to make that reservation before the 10th to save yourself some money. Thanks to those of you who have already sent in your checks. It is really helpful for the planning committee to have some working capital. And, if you are in contact with anyone who is not on Cougartown, please contact me personally with their email or snail mail address so that we can let them know about the reunion. Thank you, Linda
Thanks Linda, I will add it to the Reunions page.

Message: I just read that the Hawthorne Historical Society was successful in putting up a historical placard honoring the Beach Boys. A good move. I used to live on 119th Place and I remember a few times where I could hear them practice in the garage. These guys also know how to decorate their home for Halloween. Always scared the kids during trick-or-treat. I was one of them scared kids. Happy memories.

Message: Just so you know that there was a very funny side to Grace Rinaldi, I'll tell a story from long ago. My (then) neighbor, Ralph Christiana told me that in Catholic school, Mrs. R use to call him a quequedon ( Italian word - spelling is probably all wrong ) He always thought is was a term of endearment, like Cara Mia.. Mi Amore.. only later did he find out it meant "CHATTERBOX" or one that never shuts up. We still laugh about that to this day. I hope to see many old friends at her service this weekend. I'm sure the church will be packed. The world has lost an icon. BTW-my mom called me that too.. popular word in Italian I think.

Cheers 'n gears my friend and hi to your wife Norma.
Happy Birthday "Left Turn Lee".

Message: Hi John, another Cougar sighting. My golfing friend and i decided to play Golf today at Shorecliffs Golf Course in San Clemente. He knows a lot of friends that work there. We played with a nice couple who joined us. Around the fifth hole we were waiting on the the tee box and started talking about where we were from and the school we attended. I mentioned Hawthorne High class of sixty. They happened to be Brian Moore Class of 72 and Rhonda Lowell Class of 73, very nice classy people. a small world and nice sighting. I may add that our mascot [The Cougar] is my favorite Cat. Take Care Cougars

Message: Thank you, John, for posting our 45-year reunion on the Reunions Page. The picture of the Manhattan Marriott is great. As more information becomes available I will let you know. I have already heard from Danny Litton, '68 asking if it's okay for '68 alums to join us. Anyone who wants to come is WELCOME. Just remember that the room we have has a maximum capacity of 150, so get your reservation (money) in early. The 9 hole golf course looked beautiful on Friday when Judi and I signed the contract. If you want to plan a round of golf on Saturday before the reunion with some of your old friends, I'm sure the Marriott will accomodate you. They still did not give us the group room-rate. I think it will probably depend on how many rooms we think we will need. There is also a Sunday morning buffet that overlooks the golf course and we can set up an informal get together for that too. Everyone would individually pay for their own breakfast and the hotel would arrange some tables to accommodate larger groups. I really think this is going to be a great weekend. If you have any ideas or suggestions to share with us, please let me know. Linda Dill and the Class of '67 Reunion Committee P.S. If you plan to make a weekend of it, my own personal recommendation for eating away from the hotel would be "The Tin Roof Bistro". It is just a short walk from the hotel and the theme is sort of Napa Valleyesque. Great wine list and food.
You are welcome Linda. Have a great reunion.
