It is with great pleasure that we present the Cody High School Class of 1969 50 Year Reunion.

Also, we’ll have a video projection of old photos at the reception. We want some of your favorites from our high school era with annotation as to who is in the picture, where it was taken, and when if known. It will certainly stir up the memories and some great stories.

Come as you are, and be ready to party like 1969!

If you would like to post your biography and picture in the memory book, email (highly preferred) it to Pam Carpinelli at email@example.com , or mail it to our home address shown below. Suzy Duchenne and Pam need time to create the book so send your bios and pictures in RIGHT AWAY. The sooner the better please.
You can use Microsoft Word or we’ll use your text within your email. Limit your bio to 200 words so we don’t have to edit it too much. Consider including some contact info for the reader such as your home address or just city of residence, email address, phone #, etc. Submit a somewhat recent .jpg or photocopied picture of yourself, preferably a current “headshot” picture of yourself. Otherwise we’ll crop and size your photo.
Your content must be received by July 1 to be included in the book. Books will be distributed at the Friday night reception as well as at the golf event on Saturday and the picnic in Edward Hines on Sunday. The cost of each book with a Cody coffee mug picked up at these events is $10. To have a memory book mailed to you, send a $10 check to Louie Carpinelli at our home address in Seattle and make sure we have your mailing address. These memory books will be mailed out to you by August 15.
There is still space available for posting an ad; and donations are gladly accepted to help defray the costs. If interested, email Louie Carpinelli at firstname.lastname@example.org
Photos from all the events of the weekend will be found on the Facebook site 1969 Cody High School Alumni and at a dedicated Snapfish website to be identified after the reunion weekend. Send your digital photos right after the reunion weekend to Louie Carpinelli via email at email@example.com (to be posted as a concise album for easy viewing). It would really help the viewers if you identify who is in the picture.

To institute transparency and integrity, we have opened up a separate bank account and have a 3rd party ready, willing and able to audit all of our transactions.
Please continue to spread the word to our fellow alumni as it’s rather challenging to find classmates 50 years later. Also, we have opened these events to our long-time friends who we used to hang with but didn’t actually graduate with us.
Thanks to all of those helping to make this a great event, including you, the alumni, as your presence is what it’s really all about.
Pam (Travis) and Louie Carpinelli Nan (Hancock) and Walt Schnabel
