I want to personally thank EVERYONE who came to the Reunion! Both nights were so much fun! Everybody looked great.  You women are even more beautiful now than you were in High School. Take care, and hope to see you soon. Dave McFarland

Hello Friends from Class of 1984!
What a great weekend we had celebrating our 25th reunion!   We turned out to have 120 paid attendees for the Saturday event and a few additional folks who came on Friday evening but couldn't join Saturday.

Check out the pictures both on this website....and on facebook if you haven't already joined.  It's a free service, there are more than 100 folks from our class signed up and it's been a great way to stay in touch more regularly with pictures, updates, chat, etc.

Thank you again to all the folks who spent the past 9 months tracking down classmates, planning for the party events and logistics and working during the reunion evening to get folks registered, create t-shirts, etc.

Friday at the W:  Michelle Shadburn and Susan Brown
Saturday picnic:  Steve Fortenberry
Saturday at the club:  Walter Ehmer (our host), Melissa Bapst (menu/dj), Terri Williams maness (nametags, check-in), Carol Anderson LaPointe (slideshow).   Steve Fortenberry and Donna Curtis also helped with the slideshow
Missing Classmates:  Ellen Pruitt
Classmate recruiting/communication:  David McFarland and Jill Morrisey

It is always a big effort to plan these events and this one has gotten particularly great reviews so far.   it is so wonderful to see so many happy, health childhood friends.  as I said during the reunion toast, there is truly nothing better than a long-time childhood friendship.

Hugs to everyone---we are keeping this website running for next 5 years as a way to communicate upcoming gatherings and continue to stay in contact.  Please take the time to post your pictures and update your contact information if it changes over time.

Hope to see everyone at the 30th, if not sooner!  (keep an eye out for an annual holiday gathering, perhaps?!)   Cheers!

If Frank is in, I'm in !!! 

I can now scratch High School Reunion off of the "100 things to do before I die" list.

If I wait for the 50th, I don't think it will be nearly as much fun.

Alright Dunwoody people-it's getting close to crunch time. Don't leave Amy hanging, okay? Either commit, and pay, or quit wasting her time. She needs a head count. All this "Well, if I'm in town, I'll come " ain't gonna cut it. Commit, one way or the other.

Has it been 25 years?  Only the mirror confirms it. Yes, I am now an IRS Agent, so burn me in effigy, thy Dunwoody brats.  Federal civil service work suits me to a tee.  My wife of 20 years (this June) , whom I met in Athens, GA, is originally from WISCONSIN (the source of my all too imitated dialect) as well; and we always said we would love to raise our kids up here, where they have that odd but perfect mix of traditional mores, the Green Bay Packers, and yes, progressive government.  As the parents of a special-needs child, we get more than our tax dollars' worth in services; although  I do miss being able to play golf in December.  

I can field tax questions, after all, your tax dollars pay my salary.      Feel free to ask.     JAH

Hi everyone----with our reunion only 4 months away, it's time to start RSVP and pay online so we can get a count and plan for the party.

You will notice the online paypay function is up and running on the "Buy Tickets for Sat Nite" event.  The Friday event and picnic are BYO/pay cash at the event but we do need to hear from you about Saturday.  Please RSVP and pay so we can get an accurate headcount.  The price will have to go up about a month before the event so get your "early bird special" now!   see you soon,
Jill

Hey Everyone!!  We need some fascinating facts on you alumni.  Most kids?? Grandkids?? Who lives the farthest away??  Successes?? (is that a word?).  

We also need lots and lots of pictures from high school,  I think I even have some from elementary school.  We will take what ever you have.  But, we need them A.S.A.P.  
  Scan them and send them to my e-mail.  We are going to use them for the reunion.  

Thanks to all of you who can help with this.

Carol

Hi everyone!
happy holiday season....good job spreading the word;  we've connected with some new people over the past couple weeks.  keep up the good work!

the committee has continued to work on plans for the reunion and one of the things we'd like to do is show a table of memorabilia from Dunwoody days...old pictures, jackets, yearbooks, mice (from the senior prank...lol), etc.  if you have anything to include please let us know via the guest book and we'll find a way to get it from you.

also, we are going to have a memory board to honor classmates who are deceased.  so far we have been informed--sadly--that we have 6 classmates who are no longer with us:  Mark Stewart, Tom Thompson, Cathy Wells, Melanie Knight, Steve Williams and Vincent Bain.  If you know of any others that should be honored, please email me with information.

Please continue to spread the word!

Hi Everyone!

so far, so good.....we have about 30 people who have indicated they are planning to join us for the reunion weekend.

Please help spread the word!  I have posted on Facebook, Classmates.com and the Dunwoody High School alumni website.   I need your help to reach out and communicate to other classmates so we can get a great attendance.   We had 365 classmates so our goal is to have 200---or a little more than half---return!   we have a long way to go but we can do it!
