Boise High School Class of 1965 Fiftieth Reunion
September 25-26, 2015
Friday, September 25 at The Riverside Hotel, 6:00 PM (This is the old Red Lion Riverside) located at 2900 W. Chinden Blvd. There will be a no-host bar, and light snacks will be provided.
Saturday morning golf will be available at the River Birch Golf Course—both women and men are invited to play and Kent Scott will provide more details should you be interested in participating. You can email him at email@example.com or you can call him at 208-880-3771.
Saturday morning Castle Rock hike. Dr. Todd Shallat, BSU professor will entertain and educate people of all ages during a moderate hike to Castle Rock, the hillside point near the Old Pen. Dr. Shallat will take an hour to tell you things you never knew happened on that hillside and valley. Meet at the Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology, 2455 Old Penitentiary Road (next to the Old Pen) at 10:45 for an 11:00 departure. $5 non-members, free for members. Boise High School alumni, Class of 1965 are welcome to join the hike. Please email Shirley Ewing if you plan to go at firstname.lastname@example.org! Go Braves!
Saturday afternoon at 2 PM we will gather on the steps of Boise High School for a group picture. This will be a casual affair. Some of us have really cool cars and if you are one of them and are interested in showing them off, drive to BHS and at 2:00 we’ll take pictures of you with your favorite car. The high school may be open for a tour.
Saturday evening’s event will be held at a new facility in Eagle, about eight miles west of Boise. Maps will be provided at the Friday event. The festivities will begin at 6 PM and dinner will be served at 7. The menu consists of a pasta buffet which will allow a more casual atmosphere and the opportunity to reconnect with more people. There will be a short program, a fun photo booth, and perhaps more surprises. Special 50th Reunion Commemorative gifts will be given to all classmates—you won’t want to miss these! We will have “our” music being played that evening, but it was decided that having a band would make visiting more difficult and the committee voted to forego that expense.
The cost of the reunion will be $50 per person if registering by check, and $55 per person if registering through the website by credit card. The deadline for registration will be September 10, but because the commemorative gifts must be ordered, we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible to make sure you get yours. Checks may be sent with the attached registration form to Randy Hulbert. His address is PO Box 1893, McCall, ID 83638-1893.
Registering on the website at www.boisehighclassof1965.com is also available. If you haven’t checked out this fabulous website that Roxann (Howell) Dehlin has created and maintained for us, please treat yourself to a walk down memory lane with all of her pictures and the stories they tell. A beautiful memorial can also be found remembering all of the classmates who have passed away. It is an emotionally difficult section to visit, but wonderful to think once again of all of these friends.
The Riverside Hotel has provided rooms for our group at a rate of $109 a night. Make your reservations early to assure yourself that a room will be available. You can call them at 208-343-1871.
Have I forgotten anything? Probably, so don’t hesitate to call me at 208-939-8500 or email me at email@example.com
The one thing I hope I haven’t forgotten is to somehow convey to you how MUCH the committee is hoping for your attendance at this class reunion. We have tried to make the weekend affordable and planned in such a manner that you will be able to see everyone you can. All that will be missing is—you! Plan to join us! Please register today!

Are you coming to the BHS 50th Reunion by RV? Let's all gather at the same RV park and have a mini-reunion by the river! We have arranged a nice block of slips for your convenience. Here are the details:
The Boise Riverside RV Park 208/375-7432, 6000 N. Glenwood St. Garden City (on the Greenbelt near the fairgrounds and the Boise Hawks stadium)
There is a grassy area called the "Golf Course" that will accommodate up to 9 units with water and power. These are back-in slips next to the Greenbelt trail. There are more pull-through slips available nearby with full hookups. Cost for full hookups is $38.50. The Golf Course area is $30.90. The park allows a 10% discount for Good Sam members or former military personnel. Reservations must be confirmed by August 20 with a $30 deposit (which is refundable if cancelled 72 hours in advance.) So call 208/375-7432 today to reserve a spot for your rig! Tell them you are part of the Boise High group.
Please let me know so I can keep track of how many are coming by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org Go Braves!
