50th Reunion Questionnaire

April 17, 2010

Dear Classmate,

Can you believe our 50th reunion is less than 2 years away? Your reunion committee is already planning a memorable event, & we hope you will join us. But first we need your input.

Some of you filled out a preliminary questionnaire 4 years ago. The results showed that the majority of you favored a Lake George YMCA weekend including a Lake George dinner cruise and possibly an Adirondack Train ride. Unfortunately, we’ve discovered that the YMCA won’t work for us. However, we did find a Lake George resort & conference center (The Fort William Henry) that can accommodate our size group very nicely. It is in a central location & offers rooms from about $139.00 to $190.00 a night (including breakfast, taxes, service charges & a free tour of the fort). We’re considering a core 3-day event with an optional couple of days for those who would like to enjoy the area a bit longer. Late September/early October would be an ideal time as the crowds will have left & the leaves (hopefully) will be turning. The exact time will depend upon other events in the area.

A second idea is to have the reunion in the Delmar area as we have done in the past with the addition of a special event or 2. And a third choice would be to combine 2 or 3 days at Lake George with a get-together or picnic in the Delmar area.

We really want to make this an event you will enjoy. So please respond to the questionnaire we devised by going to our new website at www.bchs1961.org . You can either answer & submit the questionnaire online, or print it out the old-fashioned way, complete it & mail it to me. Either way, please respond by Friday, May 14th.

Thanks so much for your input. Have a happy & healthy year; we look forward to seeing you in 2011!

Sincerely,

Robyn (Madison) Potter

50th Reunion Feedback Welcome!

November 21, 2009

Hi All………

We have begun planning for our 50th class reunion and expect to mail out flyers in the spring to everyone for feedback on plans for the 50th.  In the meantime, we’re looking for feedback on what we have discussed so far and would appreciate it if you would e-mail back some of your thoughts so I can pass them along to others at our meeting.  And why don’t you send this to others in your address book and have them get back to me also.  We were considering extending the reunion from our regular weekend get-togethers to 5 or more days.  Also, would you prefer a summer or fall reunion.  Robin Madison and Bill McMillen travelled to Lake George and met with someone at Ft. William Henry Hotel for information and rates and found there are many activities to participate in up there in the village within walking distance, plus a conference room for class get-togethers.  We considered Lake George for 2,3, or more days and then local activities on the weekend in the Delmar area with our regular Friday night “meet and greet” at a local bar/restaurant, and then a clambake/picnic on Saturday w/DJ, and the Sunday brunch.  Or maybe it’s just too much stuff! Please add your own suggestions so we can see what pleases the most people.  If it runs for 5 days to a week, we can pick and choose where and what we would like to do, or attend everything.

Thanks,

Linda Fuhrman Deleskiewicz
