Hello Classmates!

Our reunion team* has been busy with plans for our 55th High School reunion. I want to assure everyone that safety is our priority and should COVID still warrant not meeting in large groups, this reunion will be postponed until we can be safe.

A dinner event is planned for Sat., Sept. 25th, at Blossom Cafe, 8349 W. Lawrence Ave., Norridge, IL. A cash bar will be available starting at 5 p.m. There will be several options for the meal (chicken, fish, beef, vegetarian) and we will be collecting CASH payment at the door that evening. We will greatly appreciate having exact cash from you to minimize having to make change for large bills. We cannot determine the meal costs, including tax, tip, bartender fee, etc. until we get closer to the event, but it should be under $40 per person. NOTE: We are not collecting any money before this event.

The Hyatt Regency O'Hare is providing a block of rooms for Friday and Saturday (Sept. 24 & 25) at a reduced rate of $99 per night, plus 14% tax, totaling $113. Also, a self-parking fee is reduced to $10 per day (Sept. 24-26). If you want to book, use this website:

For anyone interested in getting together for a drink and conversation on Friday, Sept. 24th, the evening prior to our reunion event, consider stopping by Pennyville Station, 112 Main St. in Park Ridge, IL. around 7 p.m. This is “on your own” in terms of purchasing drinks or food.

You can check any updated reunion details at Ridgewood's website:

Lastly, email me if you plan on attending the dinner at Blossom Café and if you will be bringing someone. We have to meet a minimum number of people to avoid a charge for the room and for determining total cost per person.

Hope all is well with each of you and I look forward to hearing from you.

Marilyn (Ragusa) Beem
