Letter from Patty Moyers Ionno


July 1, 2021 

Dear Classmates and Spouses:

Just wanted to bring you up-to-date on some activities that we have been working on for the class.

We are planning to try again this year to have the class picnic which we have scheduled for noon on August 28.  It will be held at Lee and Ruth Hadley's riverside home which is located at 38520 SR 7, Newport, Ohio 45768. (Lee asks that everyone bring a lawn chair!)

The committee decided for this year, instead of having a potluck lunch, we would have the meal catered with various picnic sustenance being served.  We'll ask for a small donation to cover the cost.  We will also provide table service, soft drinks, and water.  If you would prefer something a little stronger than soft drinks, feel free to bring your own bottle.

We will need a head count so PLEASE either call me (Patty Moyers Ionno) at 740-244-4115 or email me at no later than August 9th and let me know if you plan to attend. 

It is hard to believe that we will be having our 65th Class Reunion in 2022.  We have reserved the Valley Gem for September 17, 2022 from six to eight PM for an evening of cruising, fun and food.  We could even throw in a little dancing??  Some classmates suggested that if you are having difficulty getting around, not to worry, we will have help to get you on and off the boat.  Don't let walkers, canes or wheelchairs stop you from coming, we'll deal with it. Hopefully, we will have at least 40 attending; that is the minimum number of reservations for the Valley Gem to reserve a night just for our class. More information will be provided later.

Some classmates have voiced their opinion to only have one night together but if you come to town a day or two early, we can gather at my house or somewhere in Marietta.  We will have an informal get together, after all, it could be our last big hurrah and we want to make the best of it.

It has been suggested by a classmate that we try to coordinate our 65th Reunion with the Marietta High School Alumni Football night, but after contacting the High School several times, they could not give us a date for that event.  Since we couldn't wait any longer to reserve the Valley Gem, we decided, sadly, to pass on that suggestion.  

Again, I urge you to log on to our class website which is   Chapman and I try our best to keep the information current on the "Classmate Contact" site which is reached by logging on to the above website, which will take you to the home page.  You then click on Classmate Contact and when that site comes up click on HERE and that will take you to the list.  Please check the information for any corrections needed.  Also if you note any classmates for whom we have no email address and if you have an email address for that individual, we would appreciate your advising Chapman Lancaster @   so the information can be updated.  In the meantime, I will still use our postal system to mail out information to our classmates who don't have an email address.  (The class website has several years of past reunions with many pictures, etc. check it out!)

We need to celebrate the fact that we are here on this earth and survived the past year with the dreaded Covid lurking.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone.  Be well and be safe.
