40th Reunion rescheduled

A number of your classmates gathered at Catfish Johnny's on Saturday, June 13, 2020 to re-plan our 40th class reunion. Unfortunately, due to the virus-that-must-not-be-named, our reunion scheduled at Lakeridge Winery in Clermont that same weekend (Saturday, June 13), had to be cancelled.

Our reunion will be a scaled down affair in October.

Unfortunately, we recently received word that Bushnell's Fall Festival has been cancelled, due to the virus that keeps on giving. As far as we know, at least for now, the South Sumter Raiders football team is still scheduled for a home game on Friday, October 16 and some of our classmates plan on attending. Maybe there is something else we can do as a get-together on Saturday morning/afternoon, but nothing has been scheduled. If we do plan on an event, we will let you know here first.

We will still gather for dinner at Catfish Johnny's in Lake Panasoffkee from 7 - 10 p.m. Saturday night, October 17. Dinner will feature a choice of steak, chicken or shrimp, with music from a DJ and kareoke. We are estimating that dinner will cost $10 per person. In order to better plan for the dinner costs, we ask that you fill out a form and email it to Toni Matthews or you can use the Venmo app to send money directly to Lori Marable. The form contains information about payment and can be found here. We do ask that you send in a form and/or payment by Sept. 30, which will help with planning. We understand that planning ahead in times of a pandemic can be difficult, so we hope you can attend, even if you do not pre-pay. You may just have to pay additional for your dinner if you do attend without pre-paying.

If there is a festival at the Lakeridge Winery in Clermont (Sunday, October 18), perhaps some of our classmates can attend that as well if they choose. We had fun there a number of years ago for one of our reunions.
