The Main Event - the main event, dinner, is Saturday, evening June 1.    Its a buffet style Mexican dinner, with prizes, awards, and entertainment provided by a local DJ at the Orange Tree Resort; our DJ will play our favorite old '60's tunes to help us recall our earlier days.

Update on the Orange Tree Resort Pool (updated 5/8/19) - Earlier, the resort reported that their pool will be unexpectedly closed for renovations from April 29th through June 6, 2019.   More recently as of this date the pool company states that it will most likely be completed by May 27th (which is prior to our event May 31 and June 1); the resort placed an alert on its website that it will be closed possibly until June 2nd (just giving them a “cushion” in case they are delayed somehow in repairing what was needed for safety).  So it is possible, if repairs are completed quickly, the pool will be open.  In the event it is not open, the resort has partnered with Embassy Suites , approximately 2 miles away in which Orange tree resort customers have been invited to use the Embassy Suites pool.  Their pool is outdoors, overlooking the golf course, heated to 85 degrees and the have a pool bar.

Thank you Tom & Dennis for your time and effort put into making our 50th H.S. reunion an event well worth attending. The Orange Tree Resort was a great place to stay. We were well taken care of from beginning to end. Can't wait for the next one!

Great memories, made new friends, look forward to a return reservations thru this web page and the hotel directly both are difficult (more than accustomed to) WE travel (wife and I ) and somewhat annoying to deal with unresponsive reservations, when in fact we were trying to ADD extra days. Great value for resort somewhat inconvenient with parking so remote from rooms WE stayed here because that is choice of organizing committee may choose another in future...

, We had a great time seeing people we had not seen in many years and have good memories from this event. It would be nice to connect from time to time. Don Hadder
