It's hard to believe that forty years have passed since we donned our caps and gowns and took the stage at Robarts Arena. Sarasota has changed and evolved and so have we - but hopefully your Sailor spirit remains intact. The SHS Class of 1968 reunion is a great way to reconnect with old friends and classmates. We have a great weekend of festivities planned and hope you can join us.
On Friday, October
10th, our classmate, Phil Torrence, has graciously offered
his new establishment, The West End Pub (in Gulf Gate) as the venue for our
"mix and mingle" event. We will have the place to ourselves so come
enjoy an informal evening of fun, food and drink.
We wll begin at 7:00 PM until ?
6500 GATEWAY AVENUE
We have left the day open on Saturday, so you have some time to golf, shop, have lunch with friends, or just relax.
The beautiful Bent
Tree Country Club is the place to be on the evening of Saturday October
11th. We wll gather at 6:30 PM for
cocktails and hors d'oeuvres with dinner at 7:30 PM followed by music and dancing. We are thrilled to have a great "reunion"
band lined up, Crystal Pain, whose faces will be very familiar
to our class. (For locals who want a sneak peek – go to the Irish Rover
Pub in Gulf Gate on Sunday night, October 5th)
4700 BENT TREE BOULEVARD
On Sunday, October
12th, take a trip back in time and enjoy a Touch of "Class"
continental breakfast in the SHS Cafeteria (near the former Senior parking
lot) from 10:00 am – Noon.
The old brick building is being renovated by the Ringling College of
Art & Design. It is a marvelous
way to preserve our school and RCAD will provide a special tour of the building
