NEWARK MEMORIAL 30TH HIGH SCHOOL REUNION
TAILGATE BBQ PICNIC
Attention Class of 88, it is 30th Reunion time! There will be few events planned for this special occasion.
A group of us are organizing a family event at the Newark Community Center for the Class of 88 ONLY.
The concept is to have your family come to the park for a picnic with activities and a relaxing time catching with fellow classmates and family. NO FOOD or DRINKS will be provided, it will be bring your own food and drink event. The concept is like what you would do at tailgate or a 4th of July picnic. Each family will bring their own food, BBQ, canopy, chairs, tables, etc. Due to a lot of people will be flying into the area for the event, if you have extra canopy’s, chairs, tables, etc. bring them for others. Classmates can visit everyone’s picnic site. We encourage if you want to potluck with your close friends then coordinate it among your immediate classmates. There will not be an overall potluck due to the considerable size of the picnic/classmates.
If you have footballs, frisbees, corn throw, horseshoes, volleyball nets, boom box with 80s music, etc. We encourage families to bring these items.
We will be having contests for longest married, most kids, who lives further away, how many follow elementary school buddies are in attendance, etc.
Pictures will be taken with classmates as a whole, by elementary school, by football/cheerleaders, band, jocks, stoners, military, and other categories.
T-Shirts will be available for purchase for the event. Money must be received by April 30th, 2018 in order to have in time for the event. T-Shirts will be $20. Details email [email protected]

• Send a current picture of you and your family

o Did you marry your high school sweet heart?
