Bishop OíReilly Class of 1977 50th Birthday Party Update

From Michael Kinney: (Please note that the attendee status of this post will be updated regularly --- Last update: July 11th)

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the location of our 50th Birthday Party has been changed. It will be held at The Castle Inn on Route 415, the Memorial Highway in Dallas, a few miles before Harveyís Lake. The date is still July 18th. Iím sorry for the late change and the late notice.

The party will begin at 1:00 PM and end at 6:00 PM. Food (dinner) will be served from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. We will have a birthday cake, desserts, pretzels and chips from 1:00 PM on.

ďJust UsĒ, our class band will be playing live just for us!! If you havenít heard them recently, youíve missed out. They are still wonderful after all these years. (Two of our three classmates wonít be 50 by the 18th; itís up to you to guess who they are!)

The menu will be a picnic menu complete with Yogi Bear. Ok, maybe not Yogi, but I got you reminiscing. It includes: Bar-B-Que Chicken; Sausage and Peppers; Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Macaroni Salad, Potato Salad and Cole Slaw. There will also be lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Beverages include unlimited soda, beer and wine. The facility has volleyball, horseshoes and basketball available for us youngins to play. If you feel young that day, bring some foot wear to join in the games. Some of us might want to bring some Ben Gay or your muscle rub of choice.

I need some help choosing the Ĺ of beer we should have on tap. Please email me and let me know your choice. Majority rules. I already have two votes from our meeting tonight for Yuengling Lager. Please let me know your choice email me at fishfishr@juno.com .

Since the party ends at 6:00 PM. Chuck Brennen suggests everyone join him at St. Nickís Bazaar next to Bishop Hoban afterwards. Iím serious about that and so is Chuck.

The cost is still $35.00. Make the check payable to Michael Kinney. Mail it to Michael Kinney 150 Andover St. Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702. Please note: I have to give them a final count on July 11th. If you have already paid and do not want to attend please call me at (570) 821-0464 and I will send you a refund.

We will still be holding the Yankee Present swap. So being a present not more than $25.00 and please no gag gifts. Just something from where you currently live. Kathy Hannon Blaum is probably bringing New Jersey blueberries and cranberries, but Robin Lonsdale wants her to bring passes to Atlantic City! See the possibilities are endless!

The Icebreaker will still be held at Grotto Pizza on Route 11 in Edwardsville on Friday the 17th beginning at 6:30ish, ending when they decide to toss us!

Check our class website for those who have paid and are attending. I will be trying to keep Lee updated daily.
