We've created a Shutterfly Collection where you can view everyone's and add your own pictures from this weekend. Just go to to get started!

Reunion Slideshow

This is the slideshow that never ended up working Saturday night. In order to play on the internet I had to shorten it to 10 minutes so I had to cut some pictures and it ends pretty abruptly but I think you'll get the idea!

Football game tickets

You can purchase your football game tickets on the blog now. Just go to the link section and click on one or two tickets to the game for Friday night while we play Klein Collins. Tickets are $6 each or $12 for two (child's ticket $4). We will have a roped off section to sit in and even if you don't want to buy them now we need to know if you plan on coming so we can pull the correct amount- just send us an email. Football tickets for sale on the blog will end on Tuesday, September 19th.
This is the perfect time to bring your family out to the game while seeing old classmates and meeting their children!
Hope to see you there- it's only 9 days away!

Ticket Payment Options

We are getting closer and closer to the big day and need to know how many people plan on attending the reunion. We don't have a clear idea of who is coming since ticket sales have not reflected the response from the Evite.

Remember you can purchase tickets via PayPal by clicking on the link to the left or you can send checks to Keni Valdez at: 9472 Prosperity Lake Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32244

The tickets are $35/person before August 31 and this is so we will be able to order the right amount of food and pay for things like the DJ, decorations, mailings and photographer. After August the price goes up to $40/person and we just might make it $45/person so get your tickets.

Hope to see everyone soon and remember to get your tickets!!

Location Clarification

We have had a few classmates ask specifically about why we're having our reunion at Papa's Ice House and we wanted to let you know about our selection process in determining where to have our reunion this year.

Firstly, the committee is entirely voluntary- we're a bunch of your classmates doing this for free in our spare time. That being said, we talked to several of our classmates about what they wanted and were looking for in their reunion and they told us a few things.

1- They wanted to have it over a football game weekend so that could be an option
2- They wanted it to be in The Woodlands and not downtown
3- They wanted a better turn out than Class of 1995 (about 50 people showed up)
4- They wanted it to be more casual than 'stuffy' and not a repeat of prom

So the first thing we did was talk to reunion companies. They wanted it to be downtown. After stressing we would not do it downtown they wanted at least $100/person for somewhere in The Woodlands. And even once we signed with them we were not guaranteed we would get a football weeekend or any of the dates selected because of conferences, conventions, wedding receptions, etc. Then we looked at the Marriott or Woodlands Country Club and the least expensive we could find was $11,500. We were not given any money for our reunion and since it is not being underwritten by anyone I was not willing to put the money up for it in case we didn't have a good turn out and couldn't cover our costs. Therefore, we found the perfect solution with Papa's. They rebuilt about 3 years ago and have moved to a much nicer location than what everyone remembers as "Papa's on the feeder road". They are working closely with us in order to ensure a fun time, great food, awesome entertainment and a super event.

Again, if you would like to volunteer to help us in finding other classmates who are still on the list please let us know by searching for them with us- that's currently our biggest need. We are still looking for donations for several items- email either the main account or myself and let us know what you can help us with.

Hope this clears the air as to why we chose Papa's. We hope to see everyone at the football game on Friday night and the reunion on Saturday. It's going to be great!
