50-Year Reunion Payment/Registration (through 8-1-2022)

Event Details

"I'm Still Standing" is our 50-year reunion motto for good reason. We've lost nearly 50 classmates that we've confirmed so far, and the total number is likely twice that since we've only located half our class. .As such, we  encourage everyone to attend our milestone gathering to reconnect and catch up with your old friends, reminisce about the good old days, and mingle and establish new friends!.  .

Since this is likely our last major gathering, your reunion committee has planned a memorable three-day event featuring Kenny Metcalf as Elton John and his Early Years band.  Kenny is an accomplished musican and vocalist, who is well known in Californa and plays at all the major venues. Most notable is that Kenny graduated from LMHS '77, and will be performing his first concert at a LMHS reunion.  Our reunion will also include a Wednesday night icebreaker with appetizers, a Thursday night main event with a sit down dinner and Kenny Metcalf concert, and a Sunday morning farewell breakfast.

Below are the details to each event, including important payment and deadline information, and registration instructions. Please carefully read this information, and contact Chris Kawate at lmhs72reunion@gmail.com if you have any questions or require additional information..
