55th YEAR REUNION -- Where, when, what is planned:

After our "50th" reunion in 2014, a suggestion was made to have a "55th" rather than wait ten years to the "60th". We are aging and switching to an "every five years" schedule provides more opportunities to enjoy future reunion events. A survey on the PHHS1964.com site in the fall of 2017 confirmed that a 55th year reunion is a popular idea. Several classmates volunteered to help. 

WHERE . . .

Also suggested -- a three day reunion event to provide us with more time to spend with our far-flung classmates. Jim Frerking offered his ranch which is immediately adjacent to Del Valle Park and its lake. He felt that the park and his ranch together offered a venue for classmates to relax and enjoy each other's company. He also offered to dig a pit to roast a pig for a Luau themed event (though the committee subsequently changed the theme to a Western Barbeque). His offer to use the ranch was accepted by the committee.

This site is a "brochure" that will layout the reunion in detail. It will provide information about the Frerking ranch, Del Valle Park and park related activities, camping possibilities and reservation links, Livermore hotels and motels, information about Livermore vineyards and wineries, as well as activities planned for the reunion days. Info on possible independent local activities will also be provided. 

WHEN . . . 

The reunion is set for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 17th, 18th and 19th, 2019. The timing of the event is in response to many complaints about the heat of August as well as the need to avoid problems that can arise in the depth of summer:  fire season (bans on campfires and barbeques), severe drought, and park closures. Our main event is scheduled for Saturday the 18th, mid-afternoon through the evening on the ranch. That night we will enjoy a full moon, and if the weather is typical -- we checked the records going back several years -- we will have a dry warm day and cool evening. The main event is for our classmates and former teachers, their partners, and accompanying assisters-caregivers. 

We have planned a pot-luck dinner on Friday evening, and a pancake breakfast on the "morning after" Sunday. They will be held at Caballo Loco, our initial gathering and parking campground we've obtained for the weekend.These two activities and the those you create yourself make it possible to share the weekend with family and friends as well as our classmates and former teachers.   

WHAT ELSE IS PLANNED

Some classmates may want to camp longer than three days in the park; they can reserve camping locations for up to a week. Others may wish to stay in a Livermore area hotel/motel, Air B&B, with family or with friends. A few may wish to attend only the Saturday evening main event, others the activities planned for Friday and Sunday as well. The reunion committee is working to flesh out the activities as this is written. 

However, this brochure will cover even more possibilities, though you will have to plan, make reservations if needed, and realize these on your own. We suggest asking others to join you on tours and activities you set up. We will keep a record of activities you tell us about in the ticket order questionnaire, and share emails addresses among those classmates with similar interests.

Keep in mind that the Del Valle Regional Park has extensive camp grounds, picnic areas, riding and hiking trails, a five- mile lake, swimming, boat rentals, a boat launch ramp, and fishing. 

Livermore and its surrounds have been developed over the past six decades, and there are many points of interest and  activities. In addition to Del Valle Regional Park and its five-mile lake, vineyards and wineries abound; there are more than 50. Tours and wine tastings are available year-round. There are several fine golf courses, 

This brochure augments our PHHS1964 class web site. You can click a link on the  class site to get to this brochure, and click a link on any brochure page to get back to the main PHHS1964 site. The class web site remains our main point of contact and communication with the class. We will use the message board and conduct surveys (as needed) on the class web site.
