About Event

my thought is that we get together at a local restaurant on Thursday October 4 for a meet and greet. Friday October 5 is GBE Homecoming. I have spoken to the school and they are going to have an Alumni tent and our class will sit together for the game and we will be recognized during half time. On Saturday October 6 we will have our formal cocktail party and dinner. Im hoping be able to get live music or a DJ. I have not secured a venue yet. I'm doing this from Florida, and I would appreciate any help.On Saturday the 6 we could plan a trip to downtown, zoo, a golf outing before the party. I hope this helps to get this incredible occasion started. We will only have our 50th one time and I look forward to seeing all of you. Any questions or suggestions? drop me a line or call me at 727-744-5776. Jackie(Nicklas) McAlister.
