What do Beatlemania, the debut of the first Ford Mustang and Eisenhower High School’s Class of 64 have in common?
They’re all celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.
Eisenhower Eagles alumni from 1964 can meet up, mingle and take a walk down memory lane Oct. 11 for the Class of 64‘s 50th Reunion celebration planned at the new Arrowhead Events Center in San Bernardino.
And classmates are being prepped to party as the gathering is more than just a one-night affair.
Members of Ike’s Reunion Committee have been hard at work planning an event-filled weekend to ensure a memorable experience for classmates, said committee member Barbara Badger.
“It’s really going to be a special celebration as we’ve all been excited for this year to come around,” Badger said. “It’s going to be a great time reconnect with some of those lost friends and create memories again.”
To help kick things off and shake-off nerves, a cocktail party and meet and greet is planned Oct. 10 from 6:30 p.m.-11 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in San Bernardino.
Following the Friday night social is a chance to hit the green the next morning for a golf tournament, then it’s off to get ready for the reunion celebration where there is plenty more planned.
A social hour is scheduled from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. followed by a dinner and dance from 7:30 p.m. to midnight, which includes video montages, photo and raffle opportunities.
Tickets for the reunion are $65. Tickets to attend both the cocktail party and the reunion are also $65.
Cost for the cocktail party only is $15.
A Sunday picnic following the event is also being planned and committee members are working to secure a location for the lunch.
