Greetings! Hope all is well with you, family and friends. I’m currently sitting on a Southwest flight returning home to San Jose California from a week-long trip to Irwin. I threw a company reunion party for my past Brandy Restaurant employees in Irwin. The Downtown Irwin area is changing for the better. The new Lamp Theater entertainment venue was jumping and a new restaurant is under renovation across the street from 200 Main Street. Maureen and I had a chance to eat and drink with Paulette and Clint Page and Eugene and Marge Jadlocki. And, guess who I ran into at the breakfast room at the Hampton Inn at the turnpike entrance - your friend and mine Ron Hickey and wife Lydia.
Why am I telling you all this - simply because the stars are all aligned and it's time to announce our next Norwin Class of ‘66 High School Reunion. Our 55th year reunion will be held June 11 and 12, 2021. The banquet will be held Saturday night at Ferrante’s Lakeview banquet facility on Route 30, in Greensburg. If my memory serves me correctly, we held our 10th year reunion in the same place. Friday evening’s meet and greet celebration is yet to be determined. New restaurants are opening, and others may go by the wayside. We have two years to finalize a local spot so we can talk about knee replacements, grandchildren and our recent travels.
So, mark your calendars, put aside some of your Social Security money and plan on attending. I don't plan to live too much longer, and I would like to see all of you a few more times before I'm gone. Remember make new friends, but keep the old: some are silver, but the others are gold. You're all gold in my book! I look forward to seeing every one of you in two years. Please plan to attend!
Hugs and kisses,
