Tickets for the "Prom"!

Image
My wife keeps referring to the reunion as "the Prom."  As in, "How's your Prom coming along?"  I reply, "Just fine." So, I guess I am going to "the prom" alone as she stays in CA with our dog... :-)

Jimmy Perrin came out to CA to visit with me last week and we discussed ticket prices. We reviewed our costs and our donations (Thank You!!) and figured the ticket price should be $60. I’ll add a shopping cart to the website for online purchasing. Online price will be $65 which will cover the 8% fee charged by the shopping cart. You can mail your payment of $60/ticket (and save the $5 fee) to:
Make check payable to: Churchill Reunion 40
Mail to:
Churchill Reunion 40
P.O. Box 13024
Shawnee Mission, KS 66212
 
If mailing your check, include name of guest (spouse) if coming so we can prepare a name tag. I’ll post more info on purchasing tickets on a separate web page (coming soon). Someone asked, "Why Shawnee Mission, KS?" -- That's where Mark Landry l...

Repondez s'il vous plait

Otherwise known as RSVP! Trying to remember who said they were coming and who said they weren't is confusing my old brain... To keep things kind of straight and organized, please RSVP on this website. You can indicate Yes you are coming, No you know you can't make it, or Not Sure yet.... most of you have ventured into RSVP land and completed the quick little form... some of you have yet to go there. The way RSVP works is it keeps track of who's coming or not or not sure -- so I don't have to try and remember it all. Then puts it in an Excel file for me. Nice!

If you click Not Sure and then decide you are coming (or not) - just go back and RSVP again. I see many names on the Names Contacted list that I am pretty sure are coming but don't know for sure or if bringing a guest. If there is a number next to your name then you RSVP'd.

We need to know approx. numbers so we can finalize ticket pricing. Speaking of ticket pricing - if you want to join the ELITE and see your na...

Committees, Donations, Music, Oh My!

Wow! Is all I can say! Many of you have come through with the donations BIG TIME! THANKS!! A special thanks to MARK LANDRY & JIM (JUMBO) WISE for their BIG donations to be our SUPER-DUPER DOGS!! and to TOD THEROS who just came on board as our first BULLDOG! and to ALL of the others! We are up to $4525 so far! Hope to surpass $5,000!

Time to start thinking committees! Decoration Committee, Sign-in Committee, Picnic Committee - what else?? Katie Radford (Gorman) has been our Picnic Committee - but she can probably use some help... picnic will basically be bring your own food, drinks, etc... informal get together... ice breaker. Not much set up on our part.

Decoration Committee is a biggie! Theme? Budget? etc. Volunteers?

Sign-in Committee - organize sign-ins, name tags, dinner tickets, etc. I think Marjie Andrea (Greenwood) volunteered to help here... but she will need help.

Music! Many of you have emailed me songs you want to hear. I have the list under SONGS (ver...

Want to be Top Dog of Reunion?

Image
How would you like the title of Super Duper Dog! Or, better yet - Top Dog of Class of '67 & '68 Reunion!! All it takes is a donation to the Reunion to win the admiration and awe from your fellow classmates!! Click on the Sponsorship link for more details.

If we can raise $5,000 (or more), we can throw one heck of a party AND keep ticket prices low so more people can attend! Plus we will put the Sponsors and all the Dogs on signs around the event. We have even more public humiliation (I mean celebration) in store for the Super Dogs - Super Duper Dogs - and Top Dog!

Getting Close!

Now is the time to reach out and contact that long lost friend! Even a good excuse to contact an old flame! If we can get the count to 100, and if we can get some donations - (need about $3000 in donations) - we may be able to peg the ticket price at $68! (get it - 1968 - $68)... :-)

Trick is getting numbers up and getting donations. Not a bad price for a picnic, free drinks during happy hour, a nice buffet dinner, dancing to sounds from the 50s, 60s, 70's and current... Not to mention seeing old friends and at least for a night, feeling a little younger!

If you or your business can afford it - please pledge a donation for the cause - either anonymously or by name and we will shower you with praise and bow to your feet!

Where is everybody?

Image
We need your help! Looking through the yearbook, I realized there are a LOT of classmates that we need to find and let them know about the reunion! Most of you have done a GREAT job in spreading the word... If you have an old address (or new one) of anyone from class of 67 or 68 send it to us and we will mail a postcard to them. (You can email me directly bob@rwrmarketing.com) or click on Contact Us on the menu bar. 

If you want to join the Locate committee let me or Mark Landry know... we will assign a few names for you to search on internet to try and locate. We don't have much time and need to come up with a ticket price - the more that come, the less the ticket price. Thanks!!

Ticket Cost?

Image

Some have started asking, "How much are tickets? When do I pay?"

We are still figuring out costs.... We will add up total expenses (mostly room, food, music, decorations, Memory Book) subtract sponsor commitments for donations, divide by estimated number attending and come up with a cost. Any funds left over will be donated to a charity. Mark Landry opened a reunion bank account complete with tax ID, etc. We will have open book accounting. Jim Perrin & Mark will handle the finances.

We estimate tickets somewhere between $65 - $100. A lot depends on donations we can scrounge up. Jimmy Perrin will help head that part up.  We'll see - our 20th reunion tickets were $41.

Once we get a price, we will accept checks made payable to the bank account (I forget exact name - Churchill 40th Reunion?), and payments online from this website - all major credit cards accepted.

We'll send out an email blast once we have an exact price. Plus keep checking here. Help by being a sponsor and d...

This New Site

Thanks for coming to this site.... all this is new to us and any feedback is appreciated. This is YOUR reunion - not OUR reunion that you are invited to! Mark Landry got the ball rolling... I (Bob Richardson) jumped in to help out. Jimmy Perrin is also getting involved. 

Several of you have volunteered to help - THANKS!! Mark or I will let you know what needs to be done - once we figure out what needs to be done. :-)

I will post here periodically to keep you updated on what is going on. The main thing now is to reach out to as many people as possible (classmates) and point them to this website. Our URL (domain name) is pretty simple to remember - www.ChurchillReunion.com.

Visit the Message Board and let me know what song(s) you want played by DJ at the reunion.
