WCHS CLASS OF 1969 50th REUNION

North and South
July 19-20, 2019

 

********************************************************************

Reunion weekend is nearly here!  

 
We've been planning for months and working hard to get the message
out about reunion events for our 50th!  Thanks to all who have helped
we are now ready to welcome over 140 guests Friday and Saturday
night.  If you have sent in your RSVP and check, you should have
received by now the final information in email (those without will
receive by mail).  If for some reason you have not, please call or email
Cris Adair Hicks (you can use the link on this site) to arrange for it to
be sent again.
 
Fellow Billies and Spartans,
      Welcome to your 50th Golden Williamville High School Reunion!
 
*******************************************************
Details about the school tours in conjunction with the 50th Golden
                       Reunion of the Class of '69!
 
Your reunion committee is pleased now to confirm we will offer
tours of both Williamsville North and South on Friday, July 19th. 
You are invited to tour one or both, and this is, of course, free of
charge.  All are welcome.  No RSVP is required; just show up!
 
The tour of WCHS North will begin at 1:00 pm.  Please be at the
school before that time.  A representative of the reunion committee
will be there to guide you to the starting point in the school.
 
The tour of WCHS South will begin at 2:30 pm.  This should allow
plenty of time for those touring both to get to South after the North
tour.  Again, a committee member will be there to guide you.  
 
Each tour is expected to last 30-45 minutes.

Dear Fellow Classmates:
Your reunion committee has been working for months on plans for our 50th reunion.
Finally! Here is your invitation with details about this weekend for old memories, newmemories, just catching up, as well as seeing what’s new in Billsville and Spartansville!  

Below are details about events, accommodations, pricing, and more. The ATTACHMENT provides all of this information, as well a RESERVATION FORM for your RSVP. There is also a list of Missing Students - we could use your help in locating them!

EVENTS

Friday, July 19

  • Times TBA:  School Tours – Williamsville South followed by Williamsville North – or vice versa. Either way, because it’s summer, our only option to tour the schools is during the week, as the schools are closed weekends. The tours are expected to last about 30 minutes each. 

  • 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm:  Buffalo-themed Appetizers and Cash Bar at Glen Oak Golf and Event Center, 711 Smith Road, East Amherst between Transit Road and Millersport Highway.  

Saturday, July 20

  • Morning:  Doubledecker Bus Tour to downtown Buffalo and the revitalized waterfront. Discover Buffalo’s architectural gems and all that’s new at Canalside! Space for this tour is limited to 65; first come first served, and there is a minimum number required to operate this tour. Pickup and drop off will be at Williamsville South. Time and departure details TBA. ** The tour cost is separate from Reunion Weekend pricing. **  

  • 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm:  Appetizers and Open Bar followed by Buffet Dinner at Sean Patrick’s Emerald Isle…or Sean Patrick’s for short, 3480 Millersport Highway in Getzville. Entertainment by the House Band and a performance by a special guest. 

Where to stay?

Old Home Days ends Friday, July 19, so hotel rooms will be scarce, especially those in the village. Within the village limits are:  Hyatt Place Buffalo/Amherst (behind the old Lord Amherst), the Reikart (renovated Lord Amherst), Wyndham Garden Hotel (corner Main & N. Forest), Hampton Inn (site of old Williamsville Inn, corner Main & Los Robles). If you opt to stay closer to where our venues are, consider these options:  Buffalo/Niagara Marriott (Millersport & Flint, near UB North), and in the same area Residence Inn, Comfort Inn University, Red Roof University, Candlewood Suites, DoubleTree by Hilton, Motel 6 Buffalo - Amherst.

Reunion Weekend Pricing: 

$100 per graduate to include school tours, Friday and Saturday night events and classmate booklet

$80 per spouse/significant other for all of the above (no booklet)

$25 per person additional for the optional Buffalo Doubledecker bus tour (65 passenger max)

Help us entertain you!  We will be putting together a slide show and would love to include photos of your WCHS years from your personal collection. Sports? Parties? School spirit? Just friends being high school friends? All are welcome! Scan your photo(s) digitally and forward them via email to Janet Deth Schmidt at jeschmidt48@gmail.com by June 1. No limit! (But Janet has full editorial control.)  

RSVP:  It’s the 50th, and we believe this will be our biggest reunion yet. We must guarantee numbers to Sean Patrick’s, so please make your reservation as soon as you can. Donations are very welcome and will be used to offset costs for the events. If you would like your donation to make it possible for another classmate to attend, let us know and we will do all we can to make that happen. If you wish to receive such financial assistance, contact Celeste Slawinski Smith, the reunion treasurer, directly, and in complete confidence (celestesmith@att.net). We want everyone to attend!!  

EMAIL:  If you have received this invitation by U.S. mail, it’s because we don’t have an email address for you. In an effort to curtail reunion-related costs, we are using email as our first line of communication. If you now have or are now willing to provide your email, please note it below on your reservation form, and it will conserve the reunion’s resources, putting it back into the events, now and in the future.
