Do I have to have graduated with you in order to attend the reunion?
No. The reunion is open to anyone who was part of our class, whether for a month or for all four years. And those who went to Scholastica Grade School with us (the Class of 1969) are also encouraged to attend!
I see that ticket prices are $58 and $30 per ticket. Is there a discount for couples?
Unfortunately, no. In order to keep prices as low as possible, we budgeted rather conservatively and allocated fixed costs rather tightly. So that means if we want to break even, there's little wiggle room to provide discounts for couples.
Why the heck does the reunion end at 10:30? We're not that old that we need to be in bed quite so early!
The standard contract for events held at the banquet facility is for a maximum of four hours. An additional hour can be purchased, but that would add an additional $5 per ticket, and our class survey indicated a desire to keep the price down as low as possible. If there's enough feedback that indicates the desire to add the extra hour, we'll consider doing so.
Why do reservations and payments need to be received by Sept. 10?
Unlike the venues we've used in the past, The Italian American Banquet & Conference Center requires a final head count and payment two weeks prior to the reunion.
If I make a reservation and later change my mind, will I get a refund?
Unfortunately, no. Refunds will not be given for any reason.
Will I get an actual, physical ticket that I'll need to bring with me to the reunion?
No. We'll have an up-to-date reservations list at the door on the night of the reunion. That way you won't have to worry about losing your ticket.
If I purchase a Late Admission ticket, why can't I come before 8 p.m.?
The first block of 90 minutes is reserved for only those who purchase full-price tickets that include the buffet. Those that purchase Late Admission tickets will not be allowed to enter the room until after the buffet is cleared.
